Contact Makers of Rubber Dead Plucked Chicken

Issue: Stop production, distribution, and sale of
cruel and obscene chicken toy.

"Classic Schtick" Sucks

Please write to the company, OddzOn. This company produces a rubber dead plucked chicken toy for "Ages 3 and up." It consists of a plucked dead yellow chicken with the legs tied and a Tootsie Roll lollipop rammed down its throat. It appears on counters at drug stores and convenience stores and possibly toy departments and toy stores. It encourages children and others to regard animal suffering and death-the cruel treatment of chickens especially--as amusing. It has a strong pornographic implication along with cruelty to animals. In response to our complaint Rite Aid pharmacy pulled the dead chicken from 22 stores in Virginia. Please protest to the store manager if you see this item for sale. Contact the store's headquarters and request that the rubber dead chicken be removed from its store(s) immediately. Thank you!
