ANN ARBOR, Mich. — People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) recently purchased 150 shares of Domino's Pizza stock in an attempt to move the No. 2 pizza company toward "using chickens killed by the more humane method of slaughter called 'controlled-atmosphere killing' (CAK)."

According to a PETA news release, chickens killed for use by Domino's "are dumped onto conveyors and hung upside-down by their legs in metal shackles — causing broken bones — and their heads are run through an electrified bath that gives them painful shocks without rendering them insensible to pain." The animal rights organization also claims most of the chickens "are still conscious when their throats are slit or when they are scalded to death in defeathering tanks."

PETA claims CAK is more humane because chickens are slowly suffocated by gradual replacement of the oxygen they breathe with inert, nonpoisonous gasses such as argon and nitrogen. In essence, the birds are put to sleep quickly.

As part of its campaign to move the food industry toward implementing CAK, PETA has become a minority shareholder in 24 companies, including Yum! Brands, McDonald's, Wendy's and Tyson Foods.
