Stop Animal Abuse at World’s Largest Chicken Producer


In the past year, Mercy For Animals has conducted multiple investigations into Tyson Foods—the largest poultry producer in the world. They’ve sent brave undercover investigators into Tyson factory farms and slaughterhouses across the country to document conditions, and what they’ve found is truly disgusting. 

These investigations show hundreds of thousands of birds crammed into filthy, windowless sheds and forced to live for weeks in their own waste and toxic ammonia fumes. The chickens are bred to grow so fast they become crippled under their own weight and frequently die from heart attacks and organ failure.

On the farm, Tyson workers were caught on hidden camera violently clubbing animals to death, breaking their necks, and leaving severely sick and injured animals to die without food or water. At the slaughterhouse, Tyson workers were even caught ripping the heads off of live birds after violently slamming them upside down into metal shackles.

These abuses have been reported to Tyson executives over and over again. Unfortunately, at Tyson extreme animal cruelty is business as usual.

But it doesn’t have to be. With your help, we can make a difference. 

Please, join Mercy For Animals in calling on Tyson Foods to implement meaningful animal welfare changes and end its cruelest factory farming practices. The abuses you see in this video have no place in a civilized society.     

Thank you.
