Speciesism in service of environmentalism.

Environmental activists are crying fowl — literally — over what they say is the B.C. Liberal government’s foot-dragging on what to do with 28,000 hectares of forest land on Vancouver Island.

The Dogwood Initiative, a Victoria-based environmental group, says activists released half a dozen chickens in Oak Bay-Gordon Head MLA Ida Chong’s constituency office on Tuesday.

Activist Sophie Waterman says the group released the birds because government leaders are being chickens about the issue.

The chickens ended up at the Victoria Animal Control pound.
