Butterball Animal Cruelty Workers Convicted After Mercy For Animals Investigations

Filed under: BirdsAnimal Cruelty

If you can't do the time - then don't do the crime!

Two former Butterball workers at a North Carolina turkey facility have been convicted of animal cruelty following a 2011 undercover investigation by Mercy For Animals.

They captured graphic footage of workers mistreating the birds which you can see, at your own discretion, (above).

Here's what the statement from the Mercy For Animals said:

"This latest round of criminal convictions against Butterball workers demonstrates that an ongoing pattern of animal cruelty and neglect was allowed to flourish at this inhumane factory farm. As the convictions pile up, it leaves no doubt that turkeys raised and killed by Butterball are routinely crowded into filthy warehouses, neglected to die from infected, bloody wounds, or thrown, kicked, and beaten by factory farm workers."

We're so glad that justice is finally being served.

Animal cruelty should not and will not be tolerated!
