Shocking cruelty on Canadian egg farm
The release of new footage of shocking conditions on a
Canadian egg farm, Clark Egg Farms Ltd. in Caledonia, Ontario, reveals
row upon row of hens in extremely crowded conditions; crammed into wire
cages so tightly they cannot stretch even one wing. Some hens are filthy
with feces from the hens above and all have the front portion of their
beaks cut off.
The hens appear to be in intense distress and pain while
laying among dead birds. The Canadian Coalition for Farm Animals (CCFA)
and the Vancouver Humane Society (VHS) are calling on all universities
to follow the lead of the University of Guelph, which recently announced
it would use only cage-free shell eggs on campus.
