Shut Down Chicken Producer After Video Shows Chickens’ Necks Being Snapped

Target: Dr Toni Shephard, U.K. executive director of Animal Equality

Goal: Shut down Cambria Farm after video appears to show severe animal cruelty to chickens.

Undercover video footage appears to show workers at a Cambria Farm, a chicken factory, violently snapping the necks of the animals and dumping the dead chickens into wheelbarrows. According to reports, hundreds of baby chicks were dying by the day. The video footage also showed the chickens living for up to an hour before a worker would come by and snap their necks. The vegan campaign group Animal Equality says it also filmed workers kicking chickens, lame birds struggling to walk and slowly dying on their backs because they were unable to stand and reach water. The chickens also reportedly had ammonia burns that left them raw. The footage also appears to show workers violently catching the birds.

Cambria Farm, supplier of the second largest chicken company in the U.K., supplies meat to companies such as Faccenda. Unfortunately, Faccenda plans on continuing to use this supplier, according to their spokesman, who said that despite being disappointed with the news, they will still be using Cambria Farms. Please add your signature to the petition below to demand that this cruel farm be shut down immediately.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Dr. Shephard,

Workers at Cambria Farm were seen in video footage apparently abusing the chickens at one of the largest chicken suppliers in the U.K. The footage seems to show chickens being violently handled, dead chickens being dumped into crates, and inured animals sometimes lying there for up to an hour before being put out of their misery. Some of the chickens were appeared unable to stand to reach water due to lameness and ammonia burns.

This is an extremely cruel way to treat chickens. We, the undersigned, are calling on you to put a stop to this sickening cruelty. Please see to it that this chicken farm is shut down immediately.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. A VERY, VERY GOOD REASON TO BECOME A VEGAN, DONT EAT MEAT.

  2. Every single one of those cruel vile evil gutless worthless heartless scum pieces of shit who abuse those defenceless innocent chickens should be punished severely. They are a bunch of animal abusers and I hope they all rot in evil scum hell.

  3. Margaret Melnick says:

    As well as shutting down this hell hole every one associated with this cruelty must be charged and stopped from ever owning or working with animals as well. Hope some judge has the balls to do it.

  4. BOYCOTT THESE COMPANIES…ONCE THE $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ DRIES UP THEY WILL RECONSIDER!!!

  5. Nooshin Perla says:

    The problem is, these heartless, worthless scum pieces of shits are making money from these innocent and defenseless animals. The only way we can put STOP to these sick A.H. is, to have a strong law to defend them. We need a person who will care for these guys instead of trying to get votes and money. Very sad. It is almost impossible to find one!

  6. This is so heartbreaking, and so vile and sadistic. The poor sweet creatures.
    Cambria Farm should be shut down immediately! There is horrible abuse going on! Why weren’t they shut down as soon as this information came out? What’s wrong with people??
    All the staff there should be immediately fired, and they and the owners should be investigated and fully prosecuted.
    There should be NO tolerance for animal cruelty.
    People can stop promoting and participating in such atrocities by going vegan. Please consider this, if you are not already vegan.

    Yet another instance when I would be capable of snapping a neck! To see the people that do this hanging off a rope would be justice. Then we hear the screams of human rights, every time! Keep plodding people, we have to try.

  8. THIS IS WHY THE GATES OF HELL WILL OPEN FOR THESE BIRD KILLERS WHEN THEIR SORRY ASSES DIE NOW. BAN THIS UNACCEPTABLE CRUELTY ON THE GREAT CHICKENS NOW.
