Dynamic World of Ducks
Ducks are friendly animals who prefer to spend their days swimming in lakes or ponds. At night, ducks will sleep in groups called paddlings. Cleanliness is extremely important to ducks, who will spend hours grooming and preening their feathers and keeping their nests free of waste and garbage.
An MFA investigator working at Reichardt Duck Farm in California documented:
- Baby ducklings having the tips of their beaks burned with red-hot metal
- Ducks suffering from illness and injuries without proper veterinary care
- Birds trapped in or under the wire cage flooring left to slowly suffer and die
- Ducks having their throats cut while still conscious and able to feel pain
Following the undercover investigation, MFA immediately alerted law enforcement authorities to violations of California’s anti-cruelty laws and presented them with a detailed legal complaint and meticulously compiled evidence of the violations. The evidence demonstrated an ongoing pattern of cruelty, neglect, and needless suffering.
Perhaps the worst abuse factory-farmed ducks are forced to endure is life without access to water for swimming or bathing. As waterfowl, ducks evolved to spend most of their time in ponds or lakes. In fact, ducks require pools of water to maintain proper health and to regulate their body temperatures.
At Riechardt Duck Farm and most duck factory farms, these semi-aquatic animals are forced to spend their entire lives on barren, wire mesh flooring. Since their fragile legs were not meant for standing or walking for extended periods of time, let alone their entire lives, many factory-farmed ducks develop crippling leg deformities and injuries, such as “bumble foot,” a painful inflammatory infection of the bottoms of their feet.
Without access to water, ducks become stressed and start to exhibit abnormal behaviors, such as head shaking and excessive feather preening. Unable to properly clean themselves, factory-farmed ducks often develop infections and painful eye diseases that can lead to blindness. Sadly, the first and only pool of water factory-farmed ducks will see is the electrified bath as they are hanging upside down about to have their throats cut open at the slaughterhouse.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. And you can help change it. As MFA continues to expose the unconscionable cruelties inherent in factory farming, and to diligently pursue justice by aiding prosecutions of animal abusers, consumers still hold the greatest power of all to end the needless suffering and death of farmed animals by adopting a compassionate vegan diet.

Like chickens and turkeys, factory-farmed ducks are subjected to horrific abuse from the time they hatch until they are violently killed at the slaughterhouse. A new Mercy For Animals investigation at one of the nation’s largest duck factory farms exposes sickening cruelty and criminal neglect of these gentle birds.

“Finally some good news, received via email, not over yet; but proves petitions do work!!!”
We have good news to share with you.
The World Society for the Protection of Animals’ (WSPA) petition calling on the Welsh Government to stop factory dairy farms in Wales has successfully passed its Petition Committee hearing.
You might remember that we wrote to you back in December, following news that Welsh Planning Minister Carl Sargeant had approved plans to build a 1000-cow intensive dairy farm, asking you to join us in urging the Welsh Assembly to update relevant planning documents to better support decision-makers faced with factory dairy applications.
The petition received 9246 signatories, including Welsh actor Gareth David-Lloyd, who came with WSPA campaigners to hand it in to the Welsh politicians.
The concerns laid out in the petition were heard by the Committee on 18 February, who have decided to take the issue further.
Thank you for helping make this one of the most-signed petitions to the Welsh Government.
The fight to stop factory dairy farms in the UK is far from over, but we wanted to celebrate this positive decision with you.
The next steps will see the Committee write to both Carl Sargeant, Minister for Housing and Regeneration, and Alun Davies, Minister for Natural Resources and Food, for more information.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on progress, and you can read more about this on our website.
Thanks for your support,

“WTF…why are animals like Abbey treated with such abuse & disgust? They breath, they hurt, they bleed & they feel pain just like we do! These poor sentient beings suffer & die agonising deaths; to feed the human population! But just because they are brought up to be slaughtered does not mean they should not be respected in life & treated with compassion & dignity in death!!”
“It’s just so fxxxxxg wrong & I wish my parents had been vegetarian, perhaps then I wouldn’t feel so guilty having eaten meat as young child; before I realised the atrocities farm animals endure!! But everybody should know how farmed animals suffer a life of abuse & horrific death; just to be a burger on your plate!! If I were a farmed animal, I would probably welcome slaughter; for then I would be put out of my misery!!”
“Please Donate what you can to help this cause before midnight. I’ve donated only $10, it’s all I can afford; but every penny helps! Without those who risk their own lives, to capture the abhorrent abuse & bring it to the attention of the public, farm animals will carry on being abused in the most horrific ways possible & the public will continue to be hood winked…i.e none the wiser! Why do you think suppliers & buyers of meat products are trying to introduce Ag-Gag laws? Once the abuse is captured, their business’s are over!!
Please help Abby today. By making a special tax-deductible donation today, you will support the vital work of Mercy For Animals‘ brave undercover investigators who expose cruelty to animals like Abby on factory farms and fight to bring their abusers to justice.
Thanks to a kindhearted MFA supporter, all donations made by midnight on December 31 will be matched – dollar for dollar – to a total of $100,000.
With this special opportunity, your gift will go twice as far in helping us build a kinder, more compassionate world. On behalf of Abby, thank you.

Get inspired! See how Mercy For Animals is winning the fight on behalf of farmed animals. From groundbreaking undercover investigations that expose shocking animal cruelty to historic legal victories, MFA is pushing the ball forward on society’s treatment of farmed animals.
Support MFA’s lifesaving work athttp://www.MercyForAnimals.org
Imagine a future without factory farming.
A future in which all animals are treated with respect and dignity.
It’s possible, if we join forces.
As 2013 winds to a close, I’m excited to share with you Mercy For Animals’ inspiring, brand-new “Year in Review” videohighlighting our many successes and victories.
Click here to watch the video now.
During the past 12 months, we have gone head-to-head with the largest corporations and meat producers in the world,pressing for change and speaking up on behalf of animals.
By releasing eye-opening undercover investigations, securing criminal convictions of animal abusers, pressuring corporations to adopt farmed animal welfare policies, and encouraging millions of Americans to transition to a vegan diet, we’ve moved the ball forward for farmed animals. We have achieved real, meaningful change.
It’s only because of supporters like you that MFA was able to advocate so effectively on behalf of farmed animals in 2013—exposing cruelty and inspiring compassion.
The numbers speak for themselves. In the past year, Mercy For Animals reached over 20 million people through our online programs, informed 15 million people through news stories, and distributed over 1 million pieces of pro-vegan literature at 600 outreach events in over 190 cities.
But these numbers only tell part of the story. Our work has inspired countless people to move toward a vegan diet, sparing millions of animals the horrors of factory farming. And our undercover investigation and corporate outreach work has led to policy changes that will impact millions more animals each year.
Just look at all we’ve accomplished in this one year alone:
- MFA’s groundbreaking undercover investigations shone a bright spotlight on the animal suffering behind the pork, egg, dairy and foie gras industries.
- Our legal advocacy department pushed for improved legal protections, triumphantly fought ag-gag bills, and ensured that existing animal cruelty laws were enforced.
- Our corporate outreach efforts successfully pressured some of the world’s largest corporations to adopt historic farmed animal welfare policies.
- MFA’s advertising campaigns, grassroots advocacy, and public demonstrations educated consumers nationwide about animal abuse on factory farms and the many benefits of a compassionate vegan diet.
MFA gives a crucial voice to hens crammed into tiny, barren cages, unable to spread their wings; for pregnant pigs immobilized in crates so small they cannot even turn around; and for cows viciously beaten and mutilated without painkillers.
With you on our side, Mercy For Animals is effectively bringing this cruelty to light and serving as a powerful advocate for these innocent animals.
Please watch our new “Year in Review” video highlighting our many successes and victories from 2013. We hope our shared victories, made possible by your support, inspire you to make a commitment to help the billions of farmed animals who still desperately need our aid. Please consider making a special, year-end donation to support Mercy For Animals’ vital work—so we can secure even more victories for animals in 2014.
This holiday season, give the gift of hope to abused and neglected farmed animals by making a special tax-deductible donation to Mercy For Animals.
Thanks to a kindhearted MFA supporter, all donations made by midnight on December 31 will be matched – dollar for dollar – to a total of $100,000.
With this special opportunity, your gift will go twice as far in helping us build a kinder, more compassionate world.

Urgent Report from National Shelter Director Susie Coston
What happened to this expecting mother would make your blood run cold.
As the factory farm workers tried to move her from a tiny gestation crate to a cramped farrowing pen to give birth, she was brutally kicked, beaten, and burned with an electrified cattle prod across the entire length of her body.
After the poor animal finally collapsed, workers dragged her by her ears into the crate.
This suffering pig – now named “Julia” – is safe at Farm Sanctuary, but she desperately needs your help. Donate now to support our Emergency Rescue Fund because, sadly, I’ve only begun to tell you about this sow’s harrowing tale.
When we arrived on the scene and opened Julia’s crate, she reluctantly got to her feet. But her eyes stayed fixed on us — looking from face to face as if she expected to be hit or kicked at any moment. The abusive worker referred to her as “feisty,” but all I saw was deep fear — and I was terribly worried for her.
Yet, I had no idea how urgent her situation really was.
Just eight hours after Julia arrived at our New York Shelter, this terrified, abused sow gave birth to 16 premature piglets.
Now we are caring for our rescued mother and her 16 preemies. It is touch-and-go for all of them — we have the entire staff at our national headquarters helping to provide medical care, feedings, fluids, and necessary medications 24 hours a day. “So is the person/s who did this going to be charged with animal abuse? he should be! What’s the farms name? they should also pay for the keep of this sow & her piglets, why should the get off scott free? If they are abusing pigs in this way, they need investigating.”
To help provide around-the-clock care during this critical time, a dedicated Farm Sanctuary supporter has offered to match dollar-for-dollar any contribution you make to our Emergency Rescue Fund. Your matched donation will be worth twice as much and will support this rescue and future rescues, as well as the ongoing and lifelong care of these animals and others like them.
Due to the physical and emotional stress of the abuse — followed immediately by labor — Julia’s condition is extremely fragile. We are watching her closely for any signs of change and are ready to respond.
Additionally, many of the piglets were born weighing barely 2 pounds. They are frail, hungry, and susceptible to many illnesses and ailments. One or more of these babies will need critical care — it is not a question of if but when — and expenses are already mounting quickly.
Just knowing that one of our Farm Sanctuary supporters cares enough to match contributions received through this email gives me hope — and I hope it inspires you to be as generous as possible. Together, we can save this family and others like them and give them the freedom to live their lives as the happy, intelligent animals that you and I know pigs to be — the freedom that the factory farm industry so cruelly denies.
I’ll never forget the terror in Julia’s eyes as she slowly stepped up the ramp to our transport trailer. After being kicked, shocked, dragged by her ears, and forced into a crate just days before, how could she trust us? In these initial days, we’ve shown her the friendship and love she probably has never known — and she already responds to us with the sweet gentleness of a trusted companion. But she desperately needs one more friend … you.
Donations made through this email will be matched by an anonymous supporter up to $39,000. Thank you for helping during this urgent rescue!
