PETA says KFC protests will resume

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals will resume picketing KFC after an unpublicized six-week moratorium, the group said. The protests will include "more than 100" demonstrations in the next month, including a weeklong action at KFC headquarters in Louisville, KY, according to PETA.

The animal rights group has targeted KFC because of how the fast-food giant's chickens are slaughtered.

PETA said it declared the moratorium while it met with KFC in "secret meetings," held in the office of hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons. Simmons is a PETA supporter.

But talks broke down, according to PETA.

KFC had no immediate response to PETA's announcement. Last summer, it condemned PETA's tactics as "corporate terrorism."
