kortrijk - Animal Rights Organization Animal Rights has filmed injured and sick skinned chickens by an undercover employee of the West Flemish egg producer Pyfferoen. It is the next animal suffering scandal with our southern neighbors.
Tens of thousands of chickens live stacked between the excrements, according to the organization. Many chickens have bare spots due to feather picking. Wounded and sick animals are left to their fate and dead chickens remain.
'The eggs of these chickens are sold as scrambled eggs, which means cheating and misleading the consumer,' said Nadine Lucas of Animal Rights. The eggs were sold as a LIDL brand. 'Consumers are entitled to know how the food for sale is produced in supermarkets. '
Earlier this year, there was a lot of outrage when Animal Rights published undercover images from a pig slaughterhouse and a chicken farm in Tielt, and a beef house in Izegem.
