France to Ban Mass Live-Shredding of Male Chicks

  • France has decided to ban its widely practices controversial live-shredding male chicks and castrating piglets without anesthesia. The move is encouraged by the animal welfare activists. Nearly 7 Billion male chicks are slaughtered around the world every year. Some are ground up alive, others are gassed, electrocuted or asphyxiated in plastic bags. France will be the first countries to ban such activity.
