Virgil Butler died

Sadly, Virgil Butler died December 14. He had spent 9 years working in Tyson slaughterhouses, killing as many as 80,000 birds a shift when he became an animal advocate.

Butler dedicated his last years of life educating others about the cruelty involved in poultry slaughterhouses, sharing the horrors he witnessed and participated in. United Poultry Concerns said, “Virgil’s detailed account of what goes on inside chicken slaughter plants has been an indispensable contribution to animal advocacy organizations working to reduce the suffering of chickens and promote a compassionate lifestyle.”
