Customs officials in the Philippines have seized inflatable sex dolls meant to be used for an international campaign against animal cruelty, an animal rights group said Thursday.
The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said it had planned to use the sex toys as props in its Asian campaign against alleged abuses of chickens by a major U.S. fast food chain.
The dolls were to have gone on a tour of red light districts in the Philippines, Thailand and Japan where they would be displayed with a banner reading "KFC Blows," PETA said.
The dolls however were confiscated by customs officials here when they arrived in the Philippines through a U.S.-based parcel service, it said.
Philippine representatives of KFC as well as customs officials were not immediately available to comment. Citing its own "undercover operations," PETA said suppliers for KFC often abused chickens, including allegedly scalding them to death and cutting off their beaks while they are still conscious.
