A new advertisement issued by animal rights’ organisation People for Ethical Treatment of Animal (PETA) in India against consumption of meat has drawn criticism from poultry farmers in Karnataka, who have just begun recovering from the beating they suffered due to rumours linking COVID-19 to consumption of chicken.

“The wet market at Wuhan in China sold live and slaughtered species of snakes, bats, beavers, and other wild animals. But, in India, that’s not the case, where it is mostly poultry meat, sheep and fish. The two are not comparable,” said Karnataka’s Poultry Farmers and Breeders Association (KPFBA) responding to PETA India’s advertisement titled “India: It’s time to move away from meat”.

The advertisement claims that “India’s live animal meat markets, factory farms, and slaughterhouses are as filthy as China’s wet markets, where the pandemic likely started” before linking consumption of meat to a variety of ailments.
