Chicken Abuse

/ 97.3 The Eagle
             B-C S-P-C-A is investigating alleged animal abuse by a chicken-catching service in Chilliwack. Spokeswoman Marcie Moriarty says the probe was launched after the agency received video that allegedly shows multiple workers throwing, hitting, dismembering and killing the birds, and forcing the animals into violent sexual acts with each other. She says the footage was shot by a non-profit animal advocacy group earlier this year as workers rounded up chickens for transport to a slaughter plant in Port Coquitlam. Moriarty says the footage shows some of the most brutal and sadistic acts of violence against animals that she has ever seen, and the S-P-C-A will be recommending multiple animal cruelty charges to Crown counsel.
