COK Hatchery Exposé

Compassion Over Killing releases an undercover investigation revealing animal abuse at a California hatchery.

This week, animal-rights group Compassion Over Killing (COK) released undercover video exposing abuse and neglect of baby chickens and ducklings at Cal-Cruz Hatchery in Santa Cruz, Calif. COK investigators documented the violations during a three-week investigation, filming acts of cruelty including wounded baby chickens lying near conveyor belts, being sorted by gender, and shipped to factory farms. Other footage shows baby chickens left to drown in pails of waste and animals with torn limbs. Immediately after releasing the video, COK petitioned the Santa Cruz District Attorney's office to file charges, but government officials declined the request.
