Council Denies Consent to Craddock Farms!

Campaign group Stop Craddock Farms and Direct Animal Action congratulate the Auckland City Council for declining consent for cage egg producer Craddock Farms to build a mega caged hen farm in Patumahoe, South Auckland.

Spokesperson Deirdre Sims says, β€œThe proposed caged hen facility would have been the biggest of its kind in our country, confining 310,000 hens to cruel cages that contravene the Animal Welfare Act,”
