I’m curious if they can get insurance or compensation for this.

Such cruelty. 330,000 lives - and that's just at one farm. How many farms are there in the country? The inhumane conditions are obscene.

Just because of those stupid bloody chicken wings most people just suck on and throw away.

It's disgusting.

I usually fill my freezer when meat prices are reduced.

Japanese eat about 5 million kilograms of chicken per day. 330,000 chickens will barely register a blip.

Meanwhile Denmark is to cull all farmed mink in the entire country (some 17 million). What a year indeed...

Is this surreal? Another pandemic. Feel sorry for those chicken they are have death setence written on each of them. I hope and pray that these chickens are not really infected and they are just using this as a way to further propaganda

Some of the reasons I became vegan all those years ago: Don't want this crap in my body. Don't want to be complicit in this awful factory farming industry. Don't want animals to die on my behalf.

Poor birds were under a death sentence anyway. Same with the poor mink.

So chicken nuggets will be a bit more expensive? Don’t care.

@cleo Regarding the ingredients, chicken nuggets are highly probable the last thing affected when chicken meat prices rise....lol
