Rapid culling action

Rapid action for the culling of layer hens involved in a motorway accident.

Friday 21th October at 13.00 PM we got an order to cull 9.000 layer hens as soon as possible. The layer hens where  on their way from Germany to Poland to be slaughtered. Underway the trailer got on fire. The responsible veternerians where afraid that the layer hens where infeted with dioxin because they where exposed to the smoke and fire. From the point of animal wellfare, this animals had to be culled as soon as possible.

We arrived at the place where the truck was standing at 20.30 PM and started working at saturday morning at 6.30 all animals where culled and loaded in the rendering containers.
