It's time for Mountaire to end the cruel, archaic practice of live-shackle slaughter!
Live-shackle slaughter is a cruel and ineffective industry practice that results in hundreds of thousands of birds being boiled alive each year! Sadly, being boiled alive isn’t the only horrific consequence of this archaic slaughter practice. Thousands of birds who are improperly stunned have their throats cut while fully conscious, while millions more suffer agonizing broken bones and dislocated limbs in the final, violent moments of their lives.
