People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is now in the process of trying to get the name of a rural road in a Boise, Idaho, suburb changed because it doesn’t recognize how “chickens are individuals.”

The group announced Wednesday that it had sent a letter to the mayor of Caldwell, Idaho, because one of his town’s byways is named Chicken Dinner Road, according to the Idaho Statesman.

It’s worth noting that, as the Statesman reported, “Caldwell city street maps don’t include Chicken Dinner Road, which is located in rural Canyon County.” It gets better.

“Just like dogs, cats, and human beings, chickens feel pain and fear and value their own lives,” PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman wrote in her letter to Mayor Garret Nancolas, adding that it should be “one that celebrates chickens as individuals, not as beings to kill, chop up, and label as ‘dinner.’”
