(Idaho Statesman) Chickens are friends for some people dinner for others. Sometimes both. But one animal rights group feels that the name of a rural road in the Treasure Valley isnt kind to poultry. PETA sent out a news release Wednesday morning alerting Idaho media that it has written a letter to Caldwell Mayor Garret Nancolas to ask for a change to the street name Chicken Dinner Road. However Caldwell city street maps dont include Chicken Dinner Road which is located in rural Canyon County. Just like dogs cats and human beings chickens feel pain and fear and value their own lives" said PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman in the letter. She wants the mayor to change the name of the road to one that celebrates chickens as individuals not as beings to kill chop up and label as dinner. " Susan Miller the Caldwell mayors assistant told the Statesman that the mayor was in a meeting. She said she wasnt sure whether hed be issuing a response to PETAs request. In the letter dated July 3 Reiman said shes not trying to ruffle any feathers" adding that words matter and have the power to change lives."
