Shocking New Investigation at a Turkey Slaughterhouse

Mercy for Animals, a Columbus, Ohio, based animal rights group recently released footage from an undercover investigation it conducted into House of Raeford Farms, a major North Carolina poultry producer. House of Raeford Farms supplies animals to companies such as Denny’s and Arby’s and turned 250 million pounds of live turkeys into dead turkeys in 2006 and raked in about 276 million bucks in the process. And what are they doing with all that money? Who knows, since apparently none of it’s going to make sure workers don’t abuse the animals.

MFA states on its Web site that the investigator witnessed shocking abuse, including the following:

-Turkeys with broken wings and legs, bloody open wounds, tumors and other untreated injuries being slaughtered for human consumption
-A worker violently punching live, shackled turkeys for “fun”
-Employees forcefully shoving their hands into the cloacae (vaginal cavities) of live chickens
-Turkeys and chickens being thrown across the facility and up into the air
-Workers ripping the heads off live turkeys
-Birds being crushed to death under the wheels of trucks
-Conscious turkeys having their throats slit

Check out the video for yourself.

Want to do something to help? The single best thing you can do to stop this hideous abuse is to go vegetarian. It’s honestly never been easier, and if you think you can’t live without eating turkeys, just think about the video you watched, and pick up some Tofurky instead.
