Sanderson Farms, a company that had multiple farms affected by Hurricane Florence, described the deaths of 1.7 million chickens in their barns as the company's "live inventory" being "destroyed."
.
In a press release, the company went on to say that "losses of live inventory could escalate if the Company... is unable to reach those farms with feed trucks."
.
Leaving millions of animals to drown or subsequently starve to death is simply the cost of doing business for industrial farms. These animals are property, nothing more. Chickens especially, because they are smaller and farmed in huge numbers, have no individual value to farms. These birds never receive individualized care and are slaughtered before they are two months old. As a society, we have collectively agreed that these animals' lives are worth nothing, but the millions who died in the hurricane would have experienced fear, pain, and distress, just as our dogs and cats would have.

The @unbound_project documents the work of women helping animals like those caught in #hurricaneflorence.

This week, our team have been on the ground in North Carolina, documenting the brutal aftermath of Hurricane Florence. Images and footage featured in The @guardian's Animals Farmed series today.

We farm animals on such a scale that when disaster comes, evacuating them isn't even an option. They're left behind. Disposable.

"Hot, sad, tiring day. Tremendously grateful to have been out in boats today with the rescue organization Brother Wolf Animal Rescue in North Carolina where @kjguerin and I are documenting the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. So much stench and death out here on the water. We are floating in sewage and manure." - Jo

"There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.” – Ansel Adams

When we look at a photograph, we are actively choosing to engage with its subject – the individual(s) pictured – and their situation. In choosing to bear witness to another's reality, we are opening ourselves up to learning more about their life. And once we know, we can try to help.
