Chickens resort to cannibalism
23 April 2012
Chickens at a government project in Piet Retief in Mpumalanga have been forced to resort to cannibalism after being neglected.
Grace de Lange from the Farm Animal Unit of the NSPCA said that just over 3000 broiler chickens had to be slaughtered humanely.
She added there was a lack of food for a few days.
De Lange said after viewing the horrendous conditions, it was decided to slaughter the birds humanely.
