Some years ago I (Karen Davis of United Poultry Concerns) heard a poultry researcher in Canada state that chickens and turkeys in U.S. food production
facilities are treated much worse than they are in Canada. Two recent investigations by Mercy For Animals Canada dispel that fantasy. Chickens and turkeys
are treated exactly the same in both countries– with complete cruelty. When asked how the baby chicks die at the Maple Leaf hatchery, an employee
laughs and says, “They boil! I have no sympathy for them anymore.”

A worker at Horizon Poultry in Hanover, Ont., sorts baby chicks by sex. The company, owned by Maple Leaf Foods, is accused of mistreating the young birds by an animal rights group.
