Video footage emerges of animal abuse at a Tyson Foods contract farm in Delaware, showing thousands of birds bred so fast they become crippled under their own weight and workers carelessly kicking, clubbing, and throwing chickens, with many of them being severely ill without veterinary access or food and water. Mercy For Animals calls on Tyson to adopt animal welfare policies to end abuse in some of the chain’s worst farms. Mercy For Animals:
Tyson Foods is literally torturing chickens to death. They are crammed into filthy, windowless sheds, thrown, kicked, and brutalized by careless workers, and bred to grow so fast they suffer from painful leg deformities and heart attacks. This is sickening animal abuse no company with morals should support. Tyson Foods has not only the power, but also the ethical responsibility to end the worst forms of cruelty to animals in its supply chain.
