PETA member wants roadside memorial for chickens

GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) — An animal rights advocate wants to place a roadside memorial in Georgia to remember several chickens killed in a highway wreck.
A member of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals filed an application for the memorial Wednesday with the Georgia Department of Transportation.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/1dsLrs1) that, if approved, a memorial would be placed at the Hall County site where a truck hauling live chickens overturned Jan. 27.
Sarah Segal of Atlanta writes in her application that she wants to place a 10-foot tombstone memorial for one month on the right of way of U.S. 129 to mark the deaths of the chickens.
The driver of the chicken truck and the other vehicle involved were not seriously injured.
