Butterball Turkey Plant Worker Sentenced to Jail

Butterball worker Brian Douglas has pled guilty to the animal abuse charges held against him by Mercy For Animals.

North Carolina Butterball plant worker Brian Douglas plead guilty to felony charges after a video released by Mercy For Animals revealed Douglas and four other workers hitting and throwing live turkeys. The footage was captured last November and December by an undercover investigator affiliated with the animal-welfare organization. Butterball officials stress that the company prohibits the mistreatment of birds, and claimed the behavior of the workers is not representative of the company. Douglas will serve 30 days of jail time and pay $550 in fines for his actions; the other arrested Butterball workers captured in the undercover footage are currently facing similar charges.
