PETA is none too pleased with this English Pub, believed to be one of the oldest in England. The name Ye Olde Fighting Cocks doesn’t really gel with the group People for Ethical Treatment of Animals, as they have urged the establishment to consider another name, NPR reports.

In a release, PETA stated that this request comes from society’s growing compassion animals. This includes intelligent, sensitive chickens. They suggest the name Ye Old Clever Cocks be used instead.

However, the owners of the pub have refused to change the name. With roots from the eigth century, the pub has become a part of the country’s history. While celebrating the fact that cock fighting has been banned for more than 150 years, the pub said that national identity and local history is still important to them.

Pete's favorite foods include pizza, tacos and pretty much any kind of breakfast. He'll usually snap a photo or two while his food cools down.
