Inghams, NSW Police, NSW Police Assistant Commissioner for Rural Crime, Rural crime detectives in Campsie, RSPCA

We the undersigned demand that NSW Police and Inghams thoroughly investigate processing plant workers at Inghams Tahmoor over the animal cruelty video footage which clearly shows these men being abusive towards Turkeys.

The workers showed complete disregard for the suffering they were inflicting on the turkeys.

The graphic and disturbing footage shows workers as they take turkeys from crates and shackle them before they are stunned and slaughtered.

In one case when a turkey falls to the ground, a worker repeatedly kicks the bird as it flaps about on the floor helplessly.

The worker then picks up the turkey and slams it against a cage, before stomping on the bird’s head repeatedly until it no longer moves. The worker’s colleague looks on, but doesn’t intervene.

In another case, two workers take it in turns to kick and knee a bird as it hangs in its shackles, before the workers appear to celebrate.

Later, one worker is shown checking around a corner, apparently to make sure no one is watching, before lining up a bird and kicking it.

The footage also shows the workers doing a mock chicken dance and clapping.

This kind of behaviour must NOT be tolerated and these people must be investigated , SACKED and charged with animal cruelty.
We would like to see INGHAMS PROCESSING PLANTS installing CCTV as a matter of urgency. Sincerely...



Signed,

Orange for Animal Cruelty Awareness

We demand CCTV in all Australian abattoirs and factory farms.  

CCTV acts as a deterrent to workers who may mistreat animals.  

CCTV also provides a legally filmed recording to prosecute workers who do so.  With ongoing undercover footage surfacing of animals abused in Australian abattoirs, factory farms and piggeries, MANY caring Australians are looking for solutions!   Help us be a voice for these defenseless animals as we push for the installation of CCTV in all Australian abattoirs, factory farms and piggeries. CCTV ideally will be monitored by independent authorities, and is relatively affordable to implement.   

The United Kingdom has a model that we are closely following.  They have successfully had CCTV installed in many slaughterhouses, largely due to the work of UK Animal Aid - by working with UK leading supermarkets and their meat suppliers. Interestingly, the UK Government were initially not interested in helping out, but that has since changed.  In January 2013, a motion was forwarded in UK Parliament for the mandatory installation of CCTV in all slaughterhouses in UK.   

Australia continues to lag behind other developed nations when it comes to animal welfare standards.
