Mercy For Animals responds to shocking video footage
Mercy For Animals (MFA) recently sent World Poultry a statement in
response to the "false and misleading statement released by Gemperle Enterprises
regarding the documentation of animal abuse at their facilities."
"Video footage doesn't lie, but Gemperle Enterprises apparently does. First
the company denied that the footage MFA took was even at Gemperle, and now that
it's clear that footage is indeed from a whistle-blowing employee of the
company, Gemperle is floating the absurd notion that the footage was somehow
staged," said the statement.
"Employees at Gemperle Enterprises have been caught red-handed, on camera,
committing egregious acts of cruelty to egg-laying hens. Instead of a desperate
bait and switch, Gemperle should be focused on taking swift, corrective
actions," said the statement, adding that the recent statement from Gemperle
Enterprises is riddled with inconsistencies, outright falsehoods, and libellous
claims that the video evidence clearly refutes.
Below is a PDF, which is a letter written from
MFA's attorney to Steve Gemperle threatening to sue for libel if they do not
withdraw "these outrageous claims".
