PETA Video Exposes Brutality at Turkey Farm
The giant poultry company Aviagen has suspended a supervisor after an animal rights group released a video showing turkeys being abused at the company’s West Virginia farms. The video released by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals shows workers stomping on the heads of turkeys, twisting their necks and slamming them into metal cages. The video was recorded by an undercover investigator. Earlier this week, PETA filed a criminal complaint against Aviagen alleging animal cruelty. Aviagen describes itself as “the world’s leading poultry-breeding company” and supplies most of the turkey breeding stock in the United States. A supervisor at the farm was secretly recorded admitting that every worker gets agitated sometimes and kills turkeys.
[Be sure to watch the video...and be thankful you aren't a fucking turkey]
