Eyes on Animals inspectors trailed for a short while a truck transporting crates full of small animals. Finally when it stopped at a gas station we were able to look under the wind protectors to check on the animals on board. They were broiler chickens going to slaughter, only a couple of months old and still peeping. Fortunately the loading density was acceptable and the truck did at least have complete lateral wind protectors, keeping the animals away from the harsh cold winds during driving. As the conditions were within the law, we let it continue.
