A fellow Unleashed member, Glen and I have been working on an interview for a while now and it's finally up on the website!
Please check it out!
Here are a couple of snippets to ensure you'll go ahead and read the full interview
"A few times I was drenched in faeces so badly that I put my clothes in the boot of the car and drove home in my underwear."
" I had to kill a lot of roosters by hand; sometimes we would have to depopulate the roosters in a shed by a certain percentage, which meant we would count the roosters and ascertain how many to kill, and divide that by how many workers were there that day. Then each worker would go in and kill that specified number of birds, usually by breaking their necks."
"The hatchery was a horrible place to work, and I could only handle one day there. The day-old chicks are thrown around the place, and if they fall off the benches or conveyor belts nobody is there to catch them. They hit the floor, and if nobody sees it happening then it's fairly likely that the chick will be stood on by a worker."
"males are thrown into a garbage bag, wheeled out the back, and asphyxiated with carbon dioxide. The first chicks to be thrown in the bag are dead long before that though; they suffocate under the weight of the chicks on top of them."
"we would hold the bird upside down by the legs, hold the head with the other hand and sharply pull down and twist at the same time."
"Itís not only about the minimisation of cruelty in my diet either Ė I feel fantastic physically and Iím experiencing an abundance of energy I havenít felt since I was a child."
