I saw the headline "Wood-Chipped Chickens Fuel Outrage" (Nov. 22) out of the corner of my eye while reading another story. My mind struggled to translate ... was it a new way of preparing poultry? Then it hit me: 30,000 live chickens had been subjected to a wood chipper. I'm still nauseated by the hideous cruelty. I realize there is horror all over the paper, and I'm not asking you to filter it. I just want to be on the record as someone who finds this act, sanctioned by a vet, disgusting, evil and wrong.
