Belgium: Chicks released in parks after refused transport
Thousands of chicks were headed to Ethopia to become
egg layers, but when at the airport, circumstances changes and the chicks were
releassed in public parks around Brussels.
According to the Belgian De Morgen, 5,000 chickes were to be sent by plane
to Ethiopia for a life of laying eggs. However, it is reported that the plane
was already full and the pilot refused to load the crates full of chicks and the
airport personnel were ordered to gas the birds.
Instead, workers brought hundreds of the chicks into the city and released
them in public parks. Dozens of chicks have now been delivered to animal homes
in the Belgian capital, but there are still many roaming the parks.
