Tonight a team from Eyes on Animals was on the road in the Netherlands and inspected 9 poultry trucks, transporting turkeys and broiler chickens to slaughterhouses in Germany and The Netherlands. This time we did not observe any animals with their wings or legs crushed by the crate doors. Nevertheless we remain very concerned about the crates that were used for the chickens; one cannot access the birds once they are loaded as the doors are found at the top of the crates, not on the sides. The turkeys have a bit more luck, being loaded onto crates with side openings means that should the truck have an accident or turkeys be suffering, the driver could eventually access them.
Eyes on Animals will continue monitoring this issue.
