Three years ago Georgia started offering state approved memorials (for a $100 fee for the sign) to put at accident sites along highways. They thought the makeshift roadside memorials people were putting up at accident sites where someone died were distracting and a safety hazard.
Last Wednesday a member of PETA in Atlanta filed a request to have a memorial placed at the scene of a crash near Gainesville, GA between a car and a truck carrying chickens. Neither driver was seriously injured but dozens of chickens died.
Normally a member of the family is the one to make the request, but no relatives of the deceased chickens are still around to file the request.
