Hatchery Horror Story

An animal-rights group gets nationwide attention after releasing video that exposes egg industry ills.

For vegetarians, it is hardly news that the commercial egg industry subjects chickens to heart-wrenchingly inhumane conditions. An undercover video documenting such horrors has gained national attention after its release on Tuesday by animal-rights group, Mercy for Animals. The organization hired an investigator to record footage inside the Hy-line International hatchery, located in Spencer, Iowa. The video, which can be viewed in full at Mercy for Animals website, shows live male baby chickens being thrown from a conveyor belt into grinding machines. Hy-line released a statement claiming to have "initiated an immediate investigation of the entire situation."
