>Murder in a Chicken Slaughter House


As animal advocates we know that thousands upon thousands of “murders” happen each day in slaughter houses across the country. Did you know that footage of video filmed in these slaughter houses has mad it’s way to prime time television? In this week’s episode of “BONES”, staring David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel, both of whom have done PETA ads, if you watch closely you will see footage supplied to the producers of the show by Farm Sanctuary and PETA.

While the show originally aired this past Thursday, November 5th, you can catch the complete episode on Hulu until December 18th.

>Join SARO for a free screening of the award-winning documentary by Adam Durand, Fowl Play.

This powerful film takes viewers on an unforgettable journey behind the closed doors of some of the country’s largest egg production facilities and graphically illustrates the heartbreaking plight of laying hens condemned to lives crowded inside file-drawer-sized cages.

Through touching interviews with animal rescuers, undercover investigators, veterinarians, and animal behaviorists, we hear compelling stories motivated by kindness and courage from the dedicated individuals who are fighting to save the modern day hen – perhaps the most abused and exploited animal on earth.

Adam will be at this screening to take question from the audience after the showing. To learn more about the film, visit
