Coincidentally, legislation is surfacing that would make it more difficult for groups like Mercy for Animals to document cases like this one. North Carolina voters are supporting Senate Bill 648, which would make video evidence obtained through undercover investigations (like the footage used in this case) inadmissible in court. Instead of hiding behind legislation, something should be done within Butterball to guarantee that animal rights standards are enforced. Therefore, we need to tell Butterball that we demand that they stop their cruel treatment of animals.
Urge Butterball CEO Kerry Doughty to ensure that this type of cruelty does not happen at Butterball again."
