Farm Worker Charged with Animal Cruelty


In a strange and fortunately rare incident, a disaffected farm worker was arrested on allegations of animal cruelty and criminal mischief. It is alleged that he interfered with the water supply to 200,000 broilers on a contract farm growing for Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation.  A high temperature alarm alerted the farm owner to the situation, presumably because of a shutdown of water to evaporative cooling pads. On investigation it was determined that the water supply to all six houses had been deliberately shut off.  The worker concerned was also accused of sending threatening messages to the grower and the integrator.
