Frar punjabi film. Public health and animal rights activists have been sounding the alarm about the risks to public health posed by the Kaporos. If a zoonotic disease spilled over into humans at a Kaporos wet market, it could spread like wildfire in densely populated NYC before health officials even detected it.

As COVID-19 blazed a trail of sickness and death through Brooklyn’s ultra-Orthodox Jewish community during the summer of 2020, animal rights activists in NYC thought that the Department of Health (DOH) would cancel the annual Kaporos chicken slaughter events, which were scheduled to take place from September 20 – 27. The DOH knew that these large, crowded, semi-enclosed gatherings could be super-spreader events and that the participants would not be wearing masks. The DOH also knew that Kaporos could put the public at risk of another zoonotic disease outbreak, as ritual practitioners physically handle live animals in the makeshift wet markets. In spite of these risks and the fact that seven health codes are violated during Kaporos, the City allowed the annual slaughter to take place.

During Kaporos, an estimated 100,000 chickens are trucked into Brooklyn; held in crates on the street for up to a week; and swung in the air by practitioners before being killed in approximately 30 open air slaughterhouses erected on residential streets. The blood, feces and body parts of the chickens contaminate the sidewalks and streets for several days, exposing New Yorkers to E. coli, campylobacter and other pathogens and toxins, according to a renowned toxicologist hired by area residents who sued the DOH and NYPD over their failure to enforce the City’s health laws.

In early September, when the Alliance to End Chickens as Kaporos came to the realization that Health Commissioner Dave Chokshi and Deputy Commissioner of Disease Control Demetre Daskalakis would be allowing Kaporos to take place, Jill Carnegie, the organization’s field director, began working with fellow rescue organizers to ramp up placement efforts for the chickens. They found homes for 275, but she knew from previous years that additional sanctuaries and homes would volunteer to take many more once the rescues began.

In the days leading up to Yom Kippur, hundreds of thousands of ultra-Orthodox Jews around the world engage in a ritual animal sacrifice called Kaporos.

During Kaporos, the all-volunteer rescue operation begins as soon as the chickens are unloaded from the flatbed trucks that transport them to Brooklyn from the factory farms in New Jersey and Pennsylvania where they are fattened for the first five weeks of their lives. Armed with the crates and blankets, Carnegie and other rescuers search the streets of Brooklyn’s Hasidic neighborhoods for chickens; rescue the ones who are unattended; and whisk them away to a triage center where chicken care experts from Tamerlaine Sanctuary provide them with nourishment and first aid as they determine whether or not they need more advanced veterinary care. According to Carnegie, rescuers transported 30 chickens to the vet, 15 of whom had wings or toes amputated.

After seven days of rescues, Carnegie and her fellow rescuers ended up with 510 chickens, who they treated and transported to dozens of sanctuaries and homes around the country — from Maine to Arizona.

In the weeks after Kaporos ended, COVID infections spiked in most of the neighborhoods where Kaporos took place. The city designated these areas as red zones and shut down the schools and non-essential businesses. Activists were left wondering how many lives – human and nonhuman – could have been spared if Dr. Chokshi and Dr. Daskalakis stopped Kaporos from happening.

The chickens used in the Kaporos ritual are slaughtered when they are five or six weeks old. Most appear to be fully grown because farmers feed them hormones and antibiotics to make the grow quickly, but this rescue looked her age.

Blogger Elle Pugsley from southern England shares with us how to introduce chickens and dogs.

Chickens rescued from industrial farms probably haven’t met many animals of a different species. If you have other animals, you will want to introduce them all slowly and safely.

Three Dogs, Three New Chickens

I have three large dogs who love to watch the chickens. If the birds are free-ranging, the dogs are watching from behind our back door. When the chickens are in their enclosure, and the dogs have the run of the garden, they are still fascinated with gazing at the girls from outside the coop. The dogs were quite interested in the chickens after I rescued the three new girls. But once they had seen and sniffed the new birds and accepted them as new family members, the dogs returned to their normal mild interest.

Before getting any chickens, I wanted to gage how my dogs would react. Fortunately, the neighbour from whom I bought my original four bantams invited me to bring the dogs to her garden and get them used to birds before I took any home with me.

Free Range Chickens and Your Dogs

If you want to free range chickens safely with your dogs, it will take training. The bantams were here before my third dog came along, so he took to them wonderfully as a puppy but I still wouldn’t leave him alone with them unsupervised. Even if you don’t plan for your birds and dogs to share space simultaneously, it’s best to train the dogs to leave the chickens alone in case accidents happen: such as you to latch the back door properly. Once this happened and all three dogs barrelled out, saw the chickens, realised they weren’t meant to be out with them and turned around coming straight back inside.

When it came to getting the dogs used to the birds I used a large cage on the lawn to introduce the dogs to the idea of sharing the space with the hens inside the cage. All three of my dogs know the command ‘leave’ and respond to it for food, objects like toys, and our pet rats when the rats have a run around on the sofa. I told them to leave the caged birds alone and carried on for several days like this until they had little to no interest. I followed this with walking the dogs on lead in the garden with the hens free ranging, first each dog separately, then in pairs, then all three together, telling them to leave the chickens if they pestered them. They are allowed to give them a sniff but nothing more.Over time I repeated this without leads on. Keep in mind, none of my dogs are livestock breeds meant to be chicken protectors and are never left alone with the chickens, I went through this training in order for the chickens to be safe if ever the dogs were let out with them as I don’t have a huge garden and they have to share the space.

Elle Pugsley started growing her own food last year, and it went so well that the next natural step was to acquire chickens. Starting off with four bantams she fell in love and quickly became a crazy chicken lady. Now she’s opened her coop to three ex-commercial free range hens to rehabilitate and provide them with a forever home. You can see pictures of her hens and gardens on Instagram.
