Man in chicken suit stops traffic in KFC protest in Trowbridge
A man was dressed up in a chicken suit protesting at the spitfire retail park in Trowbridge today.
Olly Tyler, 16, from Westwood spent £600 on a chicken fancy dress outfit with a banner saying 'Boycott KFC Cruelty' in a bid to stop animal cruelty at chicken fast food chain KFC.
Olly Tyler said: "I saw online in an undercover secret investigation how suppliers process their meat and treat the animals and found it horrible."
The student who was alone at the protest felt his message was being sent out to the public effectively.

"I feel really positive. The results have been great, people honking their horns, waving and putting their thumbs up in support," Olly added.
Olly will be protesting again tomorrow (Sunday) at the Spitfire Retail park from 10am til 5pm.
KFC which recently opened at the retail park sparked controversy after the public felt another fast food chain was unnecessary.
Trowbridge Spitfire Retail Park also has a Mcdonalds.
KFC refused to comment on the protest.
