Documentary on poultry slaughter. 9 minutes -VHS format

Billions of chickens and turkeys are slaughtered in the United States every year. Poultry comprise the largest percentage of animals used for 'food production', yet they are specifically excluded from humane protection. Under federal law, birds can be hung upside down fully conscious and bled to death, often reaching the scalding tank while they are still alive.

This powerful video takes the viewer into poultry slaughterhouses to witness the horrendous suffering endured by chickens and turkeys. The video contains undercover footage obtained by Farm Sanctuary investigators of standard poultry slaughter operations, where terrified chickens and turkeys are slowly bled to death -- sometimes on the slaughterhouse floor.

Scenes from "Humane Slaughter?" have been aired on television stations around the world, prompting millions to eliminate poultry from their diets. This 9 minute narrated presentation includes information on what you can do to help stop poultry production cruelties.

Every year, over eight billion farm animals are raised, transported, and slaughtered under grossly inhumane conditions. Your help is urgently needed to ensure that farm animals are recognized as living, sentient beings -- in the courts, in the laws, in the hearts and minds of people.

With member support, Farm Sanctuary is investigating and prosecuting farm animal abusers; passing legislation banning cruel farming practices; exposing the meat, egg, and dairy industries; and operating the largest shelters in the country for victims of "food animals" production.
