Victory! Plans for Monstrous Chicken Farm Near York Are Rejected

Posted by on August 17, 2018 | Permalink

Fantastic news for chickens! Plans for an intensive chicken farm in Rufforth, near York, have been rejected by City of York Council after almost 20,000 PETA supporters signed a petition opposing the facility.

If the proposal had been approved, up to 144,000 chickens at a time would have been crammed into three severely crowded, dark sheds. They’d have been subjected to extreme suffering – treated like meat machines rather than living, feeling beings – before facing a terrifying death at the abattoir.

This is the second time that we’ve helped defeat a planning application for this horrific facility. Thank you to everyone who took action and signed our petition.
