Farm for Sale for 1 Ruble

Shareholders of a poultry farm that made headlines after 1 million chickens were killed in a gruesome fashion because of a lack of money for feed grain, will sell the enterprise for 1 ruble (3 cents), RIA-Novosti reported Monday.

Investors interested in the Kursk region’s Krasnaya Polyana farm will also have to pledge to cut no jobs and pay off the company’s debt of 50 million rubles ($1.6 million), the report said, adding that no buyer has surfaced so far.

More than 1 million chickens were buried alive or drowned in cold water on the farm, with videos of the killings posted online in a plea for help.
