SURGE carries out undercover investigations into UK ANIMAL FARMING in order to reveal the hidden truth about what happens to animals in this country. 


HORRIFICALLY DEFORMED TURKEYS DISCOVERED AT UK FARM

January 2018

Surge investigators discovered horrifically deformed turkeys that were destined for the UK's largest leading supermarkets.  

Undercover investigators working for Surge have discovered turkeys suffering horrifically in a standard UK turkey farm. These animals, treated as nothing other than commodities, were shown to be severely lame and in terrible pain - a consequence of consumer demand for their flesh.


THEY WILL NEVER LEAVE THIS BARN

Investigators documented the life and death of UK chickens raised for meat in a standard British farming facility. 

90% of chicken production in the UK is in intensive windowless sheds which house 20 - 50,000 chickens each. Placed in the sheds after birth, the birds will never leave the barns until the day they are transported to the slaughterhouse, if they don't die before in the confines of the barn. Due to selective breeding and genetic modification, chickens reach slaughter age in just 41 days, in essence meaning they are chicks in an obese adult body.
