VANCOUVER — Animal advocates say they have opened an investigation into “absolutely sickening” alleged animal abuse by a chicken-catching service in Chilliwack, B.C.
B.C. SPCA spokeswoman Marcie Moriarty says the agency has launched a formal investigation after receiving undercover video that allegedly shows multiple workers throwing, hitting, dismembering and killing the birds, and forcing the animals into violent sexual acts with each other.
She says the workers were hired to round up chickens for transport to a slaughter plant in Port Coquitlam.
Moriarty says the footage was shot by a non-profit animal advocacy group between May 10 and June 9.
Investigators with the B.C. SPCA are now working on a report that will be forwarded to Crown counsel and Moriarty says they will be recommending multiple charges of animal cruelty under both the Criminal Code and the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.
Help bring these abusers ( Elite Farm Services Ltd. in Chilliwack) to justice and make the producer feel the scorn of the end user. Mercy for Animals is urging Canadian consumers to put pressure on Loblaw president Galen Weston to adopt “meaningful animal welfare policies” to ensure that animals sold in stores are not tortured. Lilydale chicken products are sold in Loblaws/Safeway stores across Canada.
Thanks and god bless!
