Punish Workers Accused of Stomping on Live Turkeys

Target: Mark Schiller, CEO of Hain Celestial Group and Plainville Farm President Tom Donovan

Goal: Fire workers accused of kicking, torturing striking, and stomping on live turkeys.

A video published by PETA has reportedly shown vulgar, sadistic treatment of turkeys at a production site in New Oxford, Pennsylvania for Plainville Farms. In the video, workers are apparently shown kicking, torturing striking, and stomping on live turkeys, who are left on the floor to die after being tortured. Workers apparently grab the turkeys by the wings, a delicate spot, and fling them at each other playfully. This seriously twisted behavior must be punished if proven true.

Plainville Farms provides food for markets such as Whole Foods, Publix, and Harris Teeter. On their website, they declare that the alleged actions go against the company’s morals. They claim that the workers will be held accountable, but it is vital we make certain the company follows through. If these accusations are true, then labeling these products as “humanely-raised” is simply not true.

New protocols should be demanded to limit scenarios like this from happening. Acknowledgement is not enough- demand these workers and supervisors are fired if found responsible and that new regulations are implemented that actually guarantee humane treatment of these turkeys in the future.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mark Schiller and Tom Donovan,

As you may be aware, recent footage of turkey farms by employees at your companies were released. If reports are true, employees entertained themselves by torturing animals. While it is important to acknowledge any wrongdoing, you must also ensure there are consequences for the workers accused of this abuse. Firing supervisors and workers who allegedly allowed this treatment to happen is an important first step. You should not advertise your products as “humanely-raised” or “cruelty-free” if this is not the case either. Your retailers at Publix, Harris Teeter, and Whole Foods should also be formally informed about this incident.

Please ensure investigations against these locations are followed through and the proper consequences are met. While this video reportedly showing the violence at your turkey farms may demonstrate a single scenario, it is your responsibility to look into all your farms at differing locations. Enact protocols that ensure cruelty does not occur. Consumers and non-consumers alike will be awaiting direct action from your companies.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. It appears that to be hired here you must put sadistic POS on your application. How sad humans feel the need to torture other sentient beings. If they must be killed for food then give these creatures the courtesy of a humane death! Just an after thought stomp on & kill the abusers😡

  2. all these so called humane farms seem to be the biggest offenders of them all. i guess the word humane really means sadistic scumbags. boycott these companies for this garbage.

  3. Evelyn Ball says:

    Well anyone who buys turkey’s or any other meat products from grocery stores and restaurants is just as guilty because you are supporting this behaviour of worthless human garbage.

  4. Sandra Dragan says:

    Excuse me, but death is “INHUMANE!” There’s nothing HUMANE ABOUT IT! Death is brutal! Animals should not have to be slaughtered just for us to eat! Think about if the tables were turned! You wouldn’t want to DIE just so someone can have a piece of your ass! I think people need to find other ways be eat & to start eating healthy. Like plant based foods! They taste good. It’s horrible when people think they have to kill Animals just to feed themselves! Like I said, we can find other ways to eat & eat healthy. There’s too many unhealthy & FAT Americans ANYWAY! That’s why we all get sick because of the chemicals and stuff that they do to our foods and things we drink! So, think about it! Our Animals deserve better treatment. They bring so much beauty to this world that’s turned so horribly wrong! I don’t eat meat! Haven’t for years. Don’t like it. It’s gross!

    • Totally agree !

    • You are Absolutely right Sandra. these poor innocent animals are killed without a thought. People feel like they can’t live without meat but that is so far from the truth. We don’t need meat to survive. Humans would be much healthier on a plant based diet not to mention how greatly it would help our planet.

    • I too do not eat animals for many years now and this is why….the thought of the pain & suffering they go through just to be placed on a plate is disgusting…and makes me so very sad…..one day all these POS humans will feel the pain they have caused these innocent animals…..an eye for an eye

    Boycott Plainville farms , evil, heartless bastards torturing these animals before killing them. Why? Bad enough they die for your dinner plate, but why are these assholes allowed to torture the Turkeys? I’m sure the owners are aware and stand by and let this unnecessary cruelty continue. Let’s put a stop to this and do not buy from a place who can’t treat animals in a humane manner.

  6. Eileen Bennett says:

    Absolutely agree with you.

  7. Absolutely despicable behavior by these workers. The animals only get to spend a short time on earth and the least we can do is treat them humanely. The people who did this should be fired immediately can charge with animal cruelty.

  8. Laszlo Lendl says:

    WTF is wrong with humans ..

    Find the responsible one and treat them the same way.

  9. I DON’T JUST WANT THEM FIRED, I WANT THEM STOMPED AND KICKED AND THEN SENT TO PRISON, FUCKING COWARDS!

  10. Stupid assholes. Boy Cott the stores and that farm.

  11. If you REALLY want to stop this type of abuse, then STOP EATING ANIMALS — OF ALL KINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    As long as there is demand, these conditions will persist.

    By the way, Hain Celestial’s brand names include Celestial Seasonings, Clarks, Cully & Sully, Farmhouse Fare, Frank Cooper’s, GG UniqueFiber, Gale’s, Garden of Eatin, Hain Pure Foods, Hartley’s, Health Valley, Imagine, Joya, Lima, Robertson’s, Sensible Portions, MaraNatha, Natumi, Spectrum, Sun-Pat, Sunripe, Terra, The Greek Gods, …

    Of ALL companies, they should have nothing to do with such cruelty. Write them directly and let them know you will boycott ALL their products.

  12. Elisabeth Peterson says:

    Anyone working with live animals must be given training for the humane treatment of them. Any mistreatment should be grounds for immediate firing!
    My preference would be that no animals-fish, fowl, mammals-ever be killed for human food. Until that time, they must be raised and slaughtered humanely!

  13. “god’s got your number”

    you pieces of shit

  14. “god’s got your number”

    you pieces of shit

  15. These SOB’s are on GOD’s radar!!!!!!!

  16. Shamona Phillips. says:

    Fire these fucks. They don’t value their jobs! And abuse animals.

  17. Don’t bother firing these bastards….stomp THEM to death and they won’t be around to cost the taxpayer or abuse any more animals…simple.

  18. This is OUTRAGEOUS AND SICKENING AND INFURIATING. THESE PEOPLE ARE LOW-LIFE HEARTLESS “INHIMAN IT” THINGS. THEY NEED TO BE PUNISHED SEVERELY FOR THE PAIN, SUFFERING AND TRAUMA THEY CAUSED THESE POOR HELPLESS ANIMALS. THIS IS JUST UNCONSCIONABLE AND UNACCEPTABLE!!

  19. Those horrible bastards should have the same thing occur to them!

  20. Julia Edinger says:

    I AGREE WITH SANDRA DRAGAN !!
