PETA protests statue of Colonel Sanders

PETA, a movement always looking for a movement, once again targets KFC.
PETA want to erect a statue crafted from chicken droppings to protest a proposed bronze statue in Corbin Kentucky of restaurant founder Colonel Sanders.
(no, that's not the the statue of Colonel Sanders you see here, that's him)
Corbin was the location of Sanders’ first restaurant.
PETA says its aim is to draw attention to their protests about the chickens farmed for KFC.
The city of Corbin says, Sanders statue is meant to represent his connection to the community, not corporate KFC.
City officials have not decided if PETA can move forward with the protest.
