A very strange “business promotion” has sprung up in New Hampshire:
Contrary to yoga’s central tenet of ahimsa (“do no harm”), the Be Well Studios yoga center in North Conway, New Hampshire, is offering a chicken-killing workshop at 10 a.m. this Saturday, June 28, at Mountain Flower Farm, which is operated by The Local Grocer. Please join us in urging the owners of Be Well Studios and The Local Grocer to cancel the event and to pledge never to teach violence to yoga students.
Chickens feel pain and fear just as the animals who share our homes do, and they deserve just as much consideration. These intelligent birds form strong family units, and mother hens even cluck to their unborn chicks in their eggs. Slitting a chicken’s throat causes him or her to experience pain and terror while slowly bleeding to death.
These chickens need your help! Please join PETA today in politely urging Be Well Studios to cancel the chicken-killing workshop and to pledge never to host a violent lesson again.”
