Mercy for Animals Undercover Turkey Torture Investigation

Turkey Torture Mercy for Animals Canada

In a recent undercover investigation, Mercy for Animals went to a turkey factory in Canada called Hybrid Turkeys. From December 2013 to February 2014, an investigator worked at the factory and documented the terrible cruelty turkeys suffer within the facility.

Throughout their investigation, the investigator saw workers punching, throwing, kicking, and beating turkeys. They also saw them crushing their spines and bashing their heads with shovels and other metal objects. Beyond the outright cruelty, the investigator also documented instances of wounded turkeys with infections left without proper care as well as inhumane breeding practices that caused the turkeys to grow so quickly they were crippled under their own weight.
