Chicken abuse uncovered at North Carolina farm

Chicken abuse uncovered at North Carolina farm

Undercover investigations that expose horrifying abuse on factory farms could soon be outlawed.  That means that investigations like the one a group called Compassion Over Killing recently conducted at Prince Poultry in North Carolina would be illegal.  The undercover investigator who went inside prince poultry found examples of horrifying cruelty.  She even saw chickens being buried alive. 

Compassion Over Killing filed a complaint with law enforcement and the North Carolina Bureau of Investigation started an inquiry in to the farm's practices.  Prince Poultry provides exclusively to chicken producer Pilgrim's Pride, the second largest chicken producer in the world.  Their products show up in stores and restaurants across America.  In a statement, Pilgrim's Pride told CNN:

Undercover video shows abuse at veal farm

Undercover video shows abuse at veal farm

Mercy for Animals has exposed what they say is horrifying abuse of veal calves at a Canadian veal farm. These baby calves, who live for 5 months or less, are ripped away from their mothers and kept in tiny crates so small they can barely move – which is the point.  The veal industry doesn't want these calves to develop muscles so that their flesh will stay tender.

A Mercy for Animals undercover investigator shot disturbing video that shows baby cows being kicked, punched, and slapped.  The organization says this hideously cruel treatment occurs on a minute by minute basis.  The investigator says he lost count of how many calves died during the 2 months he was working at the farm.

That employee has since been fired for allegedly stealing.

The race to save Sochi's stray dogs

It's a race against time to save Sochi's dogs. WARNING - the video is graphic.

As the Olympic opening ceremony gets underway, it's open season on the thousands of strays wandering the city's streets and they’re being rapidly, cruelly, exterminated. Russian policies are calling these living, breathing creatures biological trash.
