Chicken Ban

Chicken%20in%20a%20bag.jpgThe Civic Center's Heart of the City Farmers' Market has announced the sale of live poultry will end on May 27. According to LGBT Compassion—who has filed a lawsuit against the market—Raymond Young Poultry sold 1,000+ factory-farmed birds twice weekly, and Bullfeathers sold at least 350 live quail a week. So, big victory for animal rights activists. SF Appeal raises the opposing side of things, that the ban has taken away "abilities to support small farmers" and "singled out Chinese people," the primary purchasers of these birds stuffed into bags.
