Martha Rosenberg writes on OpEDNews.com:

“The suffering that VSD inflicts was witnessed in videos of experiments conducted by North Carolina State University (NCSU) researchers and viewed by the Intercept and Animal Outlook. ‘As the boxes get hotter and the air inside more stagnant, and as carbon dioxide is sometimes added, the chickens writhe, gasp, pant, stagger and even throw themselves against the walls of their confinement in a desperate attempt to escape,’ wrote Animal Outlook. ‘Eventually the birds collapse and, finally, die from heat and suffocation.’" . . .

“Increasingly, veterinarians, animal advocates and concerned citizens are saying the AVMA's refusal to formally condemn ventilation shutdown and ventilation shutdown plus heat is a clear instance of the association putting corporations and economic interests over animals and a violation of the Veterinarian's Oath itself. United Poultry Concerns, a coalition member of Our Honor, says the AVMA ‘should now step up for the animals instead of pandering repeatedly to their abusers.’"
