SALEM, Ore. -- Two weeks after a semi carrying a load of chickens crashed in Salem, PETA wants to put up a statue to remember the chickens that died, a spokeswoman said.
The statue would be erected at the intersection of Commercial and Division streets, where the crash happened on July 9, said Danielle Katz.

The statue, pictured below, would be more than 5 feet tall and weigh about 250 lbs., Katz said.
It will include the inscription, “In memory of the hundreds of chickens who suffered and died in a truck crash July 9, 2013 – Go vegan.”
The plan would still need to be approved by the City of Salem.
