The Australian community has become more aware of animal cruelty concerns over the last few years. Turkeys in Australia undergo a painful and miserable life including extreme confinement, body mutilations, artificial lighting, rapid growth causing health issues, and artificial insemination (including hand masturbation of male turkeys). See www.aussieturkeys.com.au for more information and photographs of turkey farming in Australia.
Inghams is one of the largest intensive poultry producers in Australia and distressing footage from their abattoir was exposed earlier this year showing gross mistreatment of animals. See the footage here: http://www.abc.net.au/lateline/content/2013/s3720275.htm
