Fire Workers Accused of Stomping on Live Turkeys

Target: Mark Schiller, CEO of Hain Celestial Group and Plainville Farm President Tom Donovan

Goal: Fire workers accused of kicking, torturing striking, and stomping on live turkeys.

A video published by PETA has reportedly shown vulgar, sadistic treatment of turkeys at a production farm in New Oxford, Pennsylvania for Plainville Farms. In the video, workers are apparently shown kicking, torturing striking, and stomping on live turkeys. The turkeys, shuddering until their last breaths, were left on the floor to die after being tortured. One worker reportedly goes to the lengths of placing a dying bird between their legs, then tossing it to the ground. The workers apparently grab the turkeys by the wings, a delicate spot, and fling them at each other playfully. This seriously twisted behavior must be punished if proven true.

Plainville Farms provides food for markets such as Whole Foods, Publix, and Harris Teeter. On their website, they declare that the alleged actions go against the company’s morals. They claim that the workers will be held accountable, but it is vital we make certain the company follows through. It is ideal if the companies they provide to, such as Whole Foods, halt purchasing their food until accountability takes place. If these accusations are true, then labeling these products as “humanely-raised” is simply not true.

New protocols should be demanded to limit scenarios like this from happening. Acknowledgement is not enough- demand these workers and supervisors are fired if found responsible and that new regulations are implemented that actually guarantee humane treatment of these turkeys in the future.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mark Schiller and Tom Donovan,

As you may be aware, recent footage of turkey farms by employees at your companies were released. If reports are true, employees entertained themselves by torturing animals. While it is important to acknowledge any wrongdoing, you must also ensure there are consequences for the workers accused of this abuse. Firing supervisors and workers that allegedly allowed this treatment to happen is an important first step. You should not advertise your products as “humanly-raised” or “cruelty-free” if this is not the case either. Your retailers at Publix, Harris Teeter, and Whole Foods should also be formally informed about this incident.

Please ensure investigations against these locations are followed through and the proper consequences are met. While this video reportedly showing the violence at your turkey farms may demonstrate a single scenario, it is your responsibility to look into all your farms at differing locations. Enact protocols that ensure cruelty does not occur. Consumers and non-consumers alike will be awaiting direct action from your companies.

Sincerely,                                                                                                                                                                       [Your Name Here]

    The meat industry seems to be full of psychopaths that enjoy torturing animals. I wish people would think about the suffering that is on their plates.

    • That’s exactly why they take these jobs, do what they like & no accountablity. Where ever there are animals you will find these devilish creatures

  2. All animal abusing scumbags must have the death penalty implemented and nothing less. A slow and agonising death for these evil cretins is essential. I am ready, willing and able to help perform this procedure!!!!

    • I TOTALLY AGREE!!! TORTURE AND THEN EXECUTION!! GET THESE BASTARDS OFF THE PLANET FOR GOOD!! AND FINE THE IDIOT PARENTS FOR BREEDING THIS TRASH!!

  3. Employees who work with animals in slaughter houses are frequently made to process=KILL the animals on company set time lines. This leads to anger, injuries and ultimately cruelty towards the animals because they can’t take it out on their bosses. I in no way condone this abuse nor the idiots involved but I read about this cruelty over and over again in slaughter houses where chickens are boiled alive, milk farms where the calves are smashed against walls, Premarin farms where the foals are likewise killed because they are
    collateral refuse that has no value to the business owners. These workers need bosses who care for the product that provides them all with
    cash and foster an environment to respect that product be it cows, pigs, turkeys, chickens.
    Such facilities need to improve their treatment of the animals that the public eats &/or they need to give them psychological/ anger management sessions.

  4. Stampede this fucker to death!!!!

  5. What the hell is wrong with people?!!! These monsters first should be fired immediately, then they should be arrested on felony animal abuse charges, and locked away in jail to ROT! There is no excuse for treating living beings this way. They clearly have no respect for life, and need to be taught a lesson.

    • Further, I will make SURE I avoid this company like the plague, and tell everyone I possibly can to do the same. Condoning this behavior is just as evil as the people doing it.
