Germany: scandal in the stable of Europe’s largest turkey producer

Numerous media report on the research images of the ARIWA (animal rights watch organization) from the turkey fattening of a high agricultural official.

The operator’s attempts at justification are nothing new:
He claims the incidents are exceptional and that responsibility is being shifted to the bottom line.
In fact, however, the footage shows the cruel everyday life in every turkey fattening.

Of course, the employees are inexcusably brutal with the animals.

But this is an almost inevitable consequence of the system, which is also based on the lack of prospects for exploited workers.

Sanctioning individual workers will NOT change anything.

Because our recordings do not show any individual misconduct, but the principle according to which this violent industry works.
The operator is one of the main beneficiaries of this branch.

He must be held accountable and his business model belongs to the dump of history!

The story: Necks cut with bolt cutters, torn tail feathers with which the employees played “soccer”, suffering and dying animals

The torture case in one of Storck’s large turkey farms, which was also uncovered and dealt with in the media in December by “ANIMAL RIGHTS WATCH”, has now been expanded to include countless other abused, bludgeoned animals and scandalous events in another farm of the poultry president …

AnimalsUnited reported also on the scandal exposure in December 2020.

“Thomas Storck is Europe’s most influential poultry lobbyist. The pictures from two locations in Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania show turkeys being clubbed to death or killed with a bolt cutter -Turkeys that slowly die, turkeys that are kicked for slaughter and whose tail feathers are pulled out by workers for fun ”, describes the animal rights activists.

The scenes were filmed with hidden cameras in Roddahn (Ostprignitz-Ruppin district) and Goldberg (Ludwigslust-Parchim district). “Workers beat sick turkeys with a club.
With their skull shattered, the animals suffered for minutes.

Open wounds can be seen, animals maltreating from conspecifics, and an employee of the company who with a
Club hits a half-dead animal.
The business is owned by Thomas Storck, and he is the largest turkey breeder in Europe.
Storck has already been accused of keeping the animals in very poor conditions.
The organization Animal Rights Watch again accuses Storck of animal cruelty.

Puppies are among the cutest beings on the planet. But caring for them when they are injured and ill is one of our greatest challenges.

We do absolute everything we can to protect and heal these little ones to get them back to their mothers as fast as possible.

Every puppy is given core vaccines including against distemper and parvo, puppies stay in unique groups to minimize the spread of illness, and those showing signs of viral diseases are immediately shifted to an isolation area.

With every treatment, everyone from nurse to caregiver lavishes an extra big dose of love.

Sprinkles loved her kisses, even after bite wounds almost ended her life.

A beautiful puppy only a few weeks old had been attacked by a wild animal. She had deep bite wounds at the top of her head and under her throat, which caused swelling and infection. Her tail wagged a little and she tried to greet her rescuers but she couldn’t even lift her head.

She was too little for such a horrible injury, and we knew if she didn’t respond to antibiotics, she wouldn’t stand a chance.

Gentle and fragile, we named this baby Sprinkles. She hovered on the brink of life and death for 8 days, but as soon as she started to perk up we knew she needed to be in the soft lap of her mother and siblings. And now, little Sprinkle is a downpour of love!

Rescue, treat, love. And more love. Please donate.

After spine trauma, therapy and love, Iris emerged into the most graceful dog.

The incredibly sweet nature of this little beauty shined through even when she was rigid with pain. She was unable to raise herself out of her sitting position after a spine injury caused by a road accident. It took weeks of medical care, rest and physiotherapy to heal. As gentle and perfect as a flower, we named her Iris.Watch this graceful blossom sway and wobble and, finally, walk on her own again!

Sponsor all-grown-up-now Merry!

So small, alone and almost faded away, we rescued beautiful Merry after someone abandoned her on the road. She must have walked until she was too weary to stand anymore and had collapsed.

Merry’s life is now filled with love. It took her 5 days before she could stand. She needed lots of physical contact which was lovingly provided by staff and volunteers.

And she blossomed into the (BIG!) beautiful girl she is today.

There are as many reasons to go vegan as there are animals on this planet! To get inspired by one more beautiful reason to go Veg, meet Merry!
