No Charges Will Be Filed in Turkey Truck Accident in Henry Co.

Posted:

Henry Co., VA - No animal abuse charges will be filed after an accident involving a turkey truck in Henry County in June.

Henry County Commonwealth's Attorney Bob Bushnell says he will not press charges against the company whose truck it was.

ABC 13 News was at the scene where crews from Circle S Ranch were throwing the turkeys into another truck after the wreck.

Bushnell says he believes the crew accomplished the job as best they could and "engaged in no acts of deliberate cruelty."

The truck ended up on its side after an accident in June 14, 2012.

Some of the turkeys were lying alongside the road or in cages in the hot sun for more than five hours.
