Hurray! Council Chucks Cruel Chicken Factory Plans
Almost 5,000 PETA supporters wrote to the council to ask them to stop this cruel factory farm unit from being built – and this fantastic result shows that your objections were heard.
Broiler facilities like the one proposed by Harrison Farms, which rear chickens for meat, force tens of thousands of birds to live crammed together in sheds and are dosed with antibiotics and bred to grow so unnaturally fast and large that they often cannot support their own weight and sometimes experience organ failure. The animals are killed as soon as they reach “slaughter weight” – sometimes when they are only 42 days old.
Thank you all for your support, and congratulations to the council for making the compassionate decision to protect animals. Fingers crossed that the council will exercise similar good judgement with other applications for cruel factory farm facilities in Shropshire.
