Ungovernable Chiliwack Chicken Farm
A severe case of animal cruelty is being investigated after the BC SPCA received a disturbing undercover video of workers at a Chilliwack poultry farm allegedly abusing and torturing live chickens.
According to a release by the BC SPCA, the video was filmed by Toronto-based activist group Mercy for Animals between May 10 and June 9 at Elite Farms Services Ltd., which rounds up and #transports chickens to a Port Coquitlam slaughter plant for Lilydale/Sofina Foods Inc. products.
The BC SPCA received the video on Friday, and it reportedly shows workers and even a supervisor carrying out appalling acts, including:
- Ripping live and conscious chickens apart, such as tearing their limbs from their bodies
- Throwing live chickens into the air, tossing them like footballs
- Kicking and hitting chickens, and slamming them into objects
- Stomping on chickens
- Forcing chickens into violent sexual acts with one another
“The video includes some of the most brutal and sadistic acts of violence against animals I have ever seen,” said Marcie Moriarty, chief prevention and enforcement officer for the BC SPCA, in a statement. “It is extremely difficult to watch.”
