According to Virgil Butler, a former Tyson slaughterhouse work, "...the chickens flop, scream, kick, and their eyeballs pop out of their heads. Then, they often come out the other end with broken bones and disfigured and missing body parts because they've struggled so much in the tank."

I look forward to your response,
