COK Suing Hatchery

Following its 2010 exposé of Cal-Cruz Hatcheries, COK has filed a lawsuit alleging routine abuse.

Compassion Over Killing has partnered with the Animal Legal Defense Fund to file a lawsuit against Cal-Cruz Hatcheries, a Northern California chicken hatchery accused of violating federal animal-cruelty laws and the California Business and Professions Code. In 2010, Cal-Cruz Hatcheries, which hatches thousands of chicks each week, was at the center of a media frenzy after COK released undercover footage documenting its routine abuse and mutilation of newly hatched chicks. In a public statement from ALDF, COK general counsel Cheryl Leahy said, “These mistreated and abused baby birds deserve justice. It’s time that their suffering be recognized under the law and permanently stopped.”
