A Florida landscaper accused of purposely running over baby ducklings with his lawnmower is facing nine counts of animal cruelty.
Jason Falbo was taken into custody after local residents witnessed the gruesome incident and called the police.
While this act of criminal cruelty is shocking and disturbing, for the egg industry it’s business as usual. Since male chicks don’t produce eggs, the egg industry considers them useless. Each year millions are disposed of in giant macerators that grind them up alive.
Too horrible to believe? Check out this undercover investigation conducted by Mercy For Animals at HyLine Hatchery. At this facility, 150,000 male chicks are ground up alive every single day.
It’s the pinnacle of hypocrisy when one man is charged with cruelty to animals for killing nine baby birds and an entire industry gets off scot-free for the exact same crime committed thousands of times over.
If all of this upsets you, the good news is you don’t have to support it. For eggless recipes and tips on baking without eggs, visit ChooseVeg.com.
