Germany: the suffering of the fattening turkeys

World Animals Voice

Although over 34 million turkeys were slaughtered in Germany in 2019, there are no special minimum legal requirements for keeping these animals.

These vague guidelines only contain specific requirements for stocking densities, but these are far too high.

Other important aspects such as activity material or a run out are not specifically defined or are completely missing.
