We can all agree that torturing animals to death is wrong. But if you eat chicken from Tyson Foods, torture is exactly what you are paying for.
A new Mercy For Animals investigation has uncovered shocking animal abuse at a contract farm for Tyson Foods—the largest meat producer in the world—including:
- Workers violently clubbing animals to death, breaking their necks, and leaving severely sick and injured animals to die without food or water
- Baby birds carelessly thrown to the ground from transport crates suffering broken bones and other severe injuries
- Chickens bred to grow so fast they became crippled under their own weight and frequently died from heart attacks and organ failure
- Hundreds of thousands of birds crammed into filthy, windowless sheds forced to live for weeks in their own waste and toxic ammonia fumes
At this Tyson chicken factory farm, over a thousand birds died every day from the diseased and unsanitary conditions. In total, over the course of only 42 days, more than 52,000 birds died at this one farm from sickness or injuries. Those who survived were carelessly grabbed by their legs, wings, and necks and violently slammed into transport crates before being trucked to slaughter.
As shocking as it is, this type of cruelty and neglect is common in the poultry industry. There are no federal laws to protect chickens during their lives on factory farms, and most states specifically exclude chickens from anti-cruelty laws. All of this means that Tyson Foods and other poultry producers are able to routinely get away with torturing chickens in ways that would be illegal if cows or pigs were the victims instead.
But we can stop this needless cruelty.
Please, take a moment to sign this petition calling on Tyson Foods to stop torturing chickens.
