Investigation Shows Cruelty Of “Humane” Chicken

Baby chicks are thrown onto an assembly line and ground up alive in a recently-released undercover video.

Chicken producer Bell & Evans markets its products as humanely raised, noting on its website that each bird is “compassionately handled, in a minimal-stress environment, throughout their lives,” but an undercover investigation conducted by the animal-welfare organization Compassion Over Killing tells a different story. The footage from a Bell & Evans factory taken this year, posted on the COK’s website, shows newborn chickens being thrown onto an assembly line like inanimate objects while the sick are discarded and ground up alive. COK reports that nearly 20 million chicks will be born in that Bell & Evans facility each year, and with no legislation to prevent them from facing this inhumane life and death, the most effective course of action is to abstain from eating animals altogether
