Chicken Industry Cruelty Through A Camera Lens
November 21, 2019
Our brave investigators have one mission: exposing animal cruelty. They go to great lengths to ensure that innocent animals are given a voice. These investigators document the shocking yet standard industry practices on factory farms by going undercover.
Since our founding in 2006, Animal Equality investigators have filmed inside more than 700 factory farms and slaughterhouses across 13 countries. The footage we have obtained has helped launch several major campaigns that have changed the world for animals.
Here are some of Animal Equality’s investigations inside the chicken industry:
Other chicken industry investigations:
- Mount Farm – Moy Park (UK)
- Saltbox Farm – Moy Park (UK)
- Helmdon Farm – Faccenda Group (UK)
- Another Faccenda Group farm (UK)
- Knapp Farm – Halberton Poultry Limited (UK)
- Chicken farm (Mexico)
- Chicken farm and meat market (India)
- Chicken farm (Northern Germany)
No matter the farm nor the country, we see the same cruel practices and abuses.
Our brave investigators do the dirty work to uncover the hidden truths behind the food industries. What happens next depends on all of us. We can help prevent these horrific abuses and the death of many animals by opting for plant-based alternatives.
We can also help to improve the lives of future animals born into these horrid industries by convincing companies to adopt higher welfare standards. Over 200 brands have already signed on to the Better Chicken Commitment, which calls for using higher-welfare breeds, providing more space for the chickens, having a cleaner and more natural environment, and using a less cruel slaughter method. McDonald’s is one company refusing to make this pledge and they continue to fall behind their competitors (like Burger King and Subway) who have already agreed to the policy. Their commitment alone would impact hundreds of millions of chickens and help set a minimum standard for companies alike around the world.
