Belgium: Gassing of baby chicks at Brussels airport sparks outrage
Belgian politicians and animal rights activists have slammed the gassing of 20,000 chicks at Brussels Airport. The animals were meant to be flown to Kinshasa. Airport firefighters refused to take part in the killing. About 20,000 chicks were killed off to end their suffering after their flight from Brussels to Kinshasa was delayed, leaving the transport container on the tarmac over an unusually hot weekend.
