Hy-line International announced this week that policy violations have been found at its Spencer, Iowa hatchery after animal-rights group Mercy for Animals captured the atrocities on film. An audit conducted by an unnamed, independent third-party found that the undercover video did reveal practices that were in direct violation of the company’s animal welfare policy. Hy-line says that “corrective actions” are being taken to ensure that its standard operating procedures are enforced and adhered to.
