KTLA Special Report: Hatchery Hell
From KTLA News
Shocking new video from California hatchery
Undercover video Tuesday reveals what one animal rights group calls clear evidence of animal abuse inside a California chicken breeding farm.
The group, Compassion Over Killing, shot video of chicks being mutilated by hatchery machinery, drowning in the filthy water of a waste bucket and being stuffed alive down a drain.
The video was shot at the Cal-Cruz Hatcheries in Santa Cruz over a one month period in 2009. Compassion Over Killing then brought the video to KTLA.
KTLA spoke by phone to the owner of Cal-Cruz Hatcheries. He told KTLA that he buys equipment from established poultry equipment suppliers who look at the compassion of their design.
He also said it was not their goal to do harm to any of their ‘product.’
Vodpod videos no longer available.
