Silenced after the first chirrups of their ill-fated lives, this is how the baby chicks are killed when they are found unfit for meat consumption. While some get their heads ripped off – while they are still breathing – other unlucky ones are simply thrown in the bin-liners because they are too weak to offer substantial ‘meat’ to the trade.
Watch the brutal process here before we proceed any further.
This video – shot secretively by an animals rights group, Animal Equality – shows how the chicks are stacked together and kept in a dark cupboard before they are taken to the assembly line.
According to Mail Online
, the ‘lucky’ ones that are considered fit for meat consumption, are dropped onto the carousel, stabbed with a vaccination needle, and thrown in the chute within seconds, like “inanimate objects”.
Soon they are sent to farms and injected with growth hormones. And in just 40 days, these chicks grow to their full size while their feet can’t keep up, thus rendering them immobile.
That’s hardly it. Millions of chicks that are born male are instantly killed for they cannot lay eggs.
Animal Equality described the process as something “what the meat industry doesn’t want us to see”.
