Test-Tube Chicken Challenge

Animal rights activists are offering scientists a $1 million reward if they can make commercially viable meat in a laboratory.

Leaders of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals say lab-grown meat could satisfy appetites without harming animals.

The reward would go to the first scientist to produce enough test-tube chicken to be sold in 10 U.S. states by June 30, 2012, at a price competitive with prevailing chicken prices.

Man Gives 27,000 Kilos Of Free Chicken Legs

Thousands lined up outside a Toronto butcher shop to get their portion of 27,000 kilos of free chicken legs.

Joes Lima, 52, a father of two, won $14.5 million in a Lotto 6/49 jackpot last week

Cops were required to control the hundreds outside Nosso Talho Meat Shops, as manager Jose Lima, who's known as "Generous Joe" or "Joe the Butcher," handed out the free meat.

"Today I repay my promise to give something back to my customers," Lima said. "I have been a lucky man since the day I came to Canada."
