When Anton Pohlmann was barred from factory farming in Germany because of animal cruelty and because workers nearly died from his nicotinic insecticide, Ohio Republican governor George Voinovich invited him to cage chickens in Ohio
In September of 2000, a tornado hit one of Pohlmann's Buckeye factory farms in Croton Ohio . the metal sheds blowing off roofs. The caged chickens (several to a 1 ft by 3 ft cage) were without food or water for 9 days. Some who were molting (shedding feathers) froze to death. Those remaining alive, hundreds of thousands, were bulldozed into graves.
UPC and other chicken rescue groups worked hard to rescue the birds. Those present in rescue efforts were ordered off the property before the bulldozing began.
Chickens off roast to death in summer heat when electricity goes out in their metal sheds. They often freeze to death in winter with outages. They are debeaked so that they will not peck each other from the stress of overcrowding. Their claws sometimes grow around the cage mesh, further imprisoning them.
Factory farms generate millions of flies, nature's garbage removers. One Ohio EPA official sank up to her neck in the quicksand like chicken waste, her life saved by grabbing onto pipes overhead. Neighbors who sued Pohlmann because of the flies won a settlement but Pohlmann, like many other high finance operators, declared bankruptcy.
Ohio Wesleyan students researched and found alarming levels of salmonella in the streams near to Croton.
Ralph Nader's Ohio Public Citizen found that Buckeye which has had at least 2 name changes since...(Agrigeneral and Ohio Fresh Egg) was selling 6 month old eggs. Others reported the use of child labor.
Art Margolis: Every factory farm egg comes from a chicken confined in a cage for an average 32 hours. It takes 120 gallons of production water and is an average 250 to 300 mg of cholesterol (animal fat).
Eggs account for nearly 1/2 of all food poisoning fatalities annually. They make vaccines even more toxic. They often transmit campylobacter, listeria, etc.
There are millions of vegan recipes online for cooking pastries etc without eggs.
