TODAY: Join our nationwide call-in! Ask Tyson to stop crippling birds

Compassion Over Killing

Jan 8, 2018 — It’s 2018--and way past time for Tyson to stop genetically manipulating birds for unnaturally fast growth! Join our nationwide call-in TODAY at 1-800-233-6332 and urge the nation’s largest chicken producer to stop crippling rapid growth in birds and pave the way for the future of food with plant protein! (See sample script below.)

Since Compassion Over Killing’s gut-wrenching investigation exposed egregious abuse and the devastating effects of rapid growth of birds in Tyson’s supply chain, the poultry giant has taken one step forward--announcing an increased investment in cruelty-free plant protein maker Beyond Meat. But Tyson is still dragging its feet on addressing a major source of suffering in the hundreds of millions of birds it breeds every year: These birds are bred to grow so unnaturally large, so quickly that they can suffer heart attacks and their fragile legs often collapse under the weight of their morbidly obese bodies -- all before they are even 2 months old.

Today, join us in a nationwide call-in urging Tyson Foods to become a true food leader by ending rapid growth once and for all and continuing to move toward the real future of food, vegan protein. Simply call 1-800-233-6332 and use our sample script below:

SCRIPT: Hi, my name is ____ and I’m calling as a concerned consumer to urge you to end crippling rapid growth in birds and transition to cruelty-free plant protein. A recent Compassion Over Killing investigation exposed horrific suffering due to Tyson’s genetic manipulation of birds to grow so unnaturally large, so quickly that their fragile legs often collapse under their own morbidly obese bodies. If we grew at that pace, we’d weigh over 600 pounds before 2 months of age. Please end rapid growth--and truly shape the future of food by shifting to plant protein! Thank you.

Please email with any response you get from the company, and don’t forget to keep sharing our petition ( on social media. Thank you for speaking up for birds!
