Chicken Conditions will be Investigated

A poultry farm owner in south Auckland could soon become the focus of an investigation after an animal rights group raided his farm and took photos and video footage of conditions there.

The SPCA says the material is shocking and that it has investigated the owners before.

The Animal Liberation Front ignored warning signs not to trespass when they broke into the battery farm on Friday night.

They say video footage taken shows many birds crammed into cages unable to spread their wings or walk.

Rochelle Rees of Auckland Animal Action says it also shows "more horrendous" conditions, in particular, cages that had six or seven birds in them. "They also had a lot of dead ones around all over the floor in the cages living with the live ones."
