Animal Cruelty at Abbotsford Chicken Farm
CTV News recently obtained undercover footage that shows another instance of inhumane and cruel treatment of chickens at an Abbotsford Farm. The National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC) has a Code of Practice that the industry is expected to follow for the humane treatment of all poultry. Sadly, these Codes of Practice lack legislative authority, and are therefore, often not enforced. At Breder Law, we believe that these Codes of Practice should be implemented into law in order to strengthen the enforceability (and thus consequences) of these provisions. Breder Law also believes that the current provincial and federal animal cruelty laws can, and should, be used to bring justice to the animals who have suffered unbearable cruelty.
