New Undercover Video Reveals Cruelty to Free-Range Ducks

February 9, 2011

Another undercover video has been released, this time of workers rounding up ducks at a free-range facility in the UK. It’s worth bearing in mind that people are paying a premium for the meat from this farm, on the assumption that the animals have been given decent lives.

I often say that one of the problems with being a conscientious omnivore is that you’ve personally got to pay the farm a visit to have any idea of its true welfare standards. But, as this video shows, even that may not be enough.

There’s so much potential for abuse and neglect in animal agriculture, that no matter where you source your animal products, it’s all but impossible to be certain that needless cruelties did not occur. (Thanks, Bonnie.) Link.
