Hardin County, Ohio – Below, please find a statement from PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman in response to reports of avian flu outbreaks at the Trillium Farm Holdings LLC egg farms in Union and Hardin counties and the Hardin County facility’s plan to kill more than 2.6 million chickens:

An avian flu outbreak at Trillium comes as no surprise to PETA, whose previous investigation into one of its filthy egg farms revealed hundreds of dead birds decomposing alongside their surviving cagemates and hens left to die slowly and painfully after botched killings. The only things Trillium pumps out more of than eggs are disease and death, and since authorities turn a blind eye, PETA urges everyone to take matters into their own hands and help end this horrific cycle by going vegan.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
