Abuser names unreleased

On August 20, 2015, Hendrix Genetics Limited o/a Hybrid Turkeys, pleaded guilty to one count of animal cruelty under the Ontario SPCA Act, section 11.2(2) for failing to exercise reasonable care and supervision of the euthanasia of animals.

In March 2014, the Ontario SPCA received a complaint regarding the treatment of the animals on a farm operated by Hybrid Turkeys. Evidence revealed failed attempts to euthanize some of the animals. A thorough investigation was conducted and charges were later laid against the company.

Hybrid Turkeys was sentenced to a $5,600 fine, that is payable to the Ontario Court.

"The law outlines the standards of care for all animals across the province," says Chief Inspector Connie Mallory. "These standards include acceptable forms of euthanasia and apply to everyone, including companies and organizations."

To report animal cruelty the Ontario SPCA invite you to call the 24/7 toll free call centre at 310-SPCA.
