You'd think that, given the fact that both Wendy's and Burger King make gazillions of dollars via the mass slaughtering, quartering, and cooking of various farm animals, the Humane Society wouldn't be too keen on either, right? Well, according to a Humane Socity press release that just floated across the Weekly wire, "Wendy's Takes Steps on Animal Welfare But Still Lags Behind Burger King." Evidently, the Humane Society is a Wendy's stockholder and has "called on the fast food chain to follow the lead of Burger King and phase in the use of cage-fee eggs. Unlike Burger King, Wendy's still uses only eggs from birds confined in cages so small that they can't even spread their wings."
The release goes on to praise Burger King for implementing "a purchasing preeference for chicken meat from plants that use controlled atmosphere killing." When it comes to fast food behemoths, evidently, it's not whether you kill a fuckton of animals, it's how you kill 'em. Baby steps, I guess.
