Animal Cruelty -- Video Shows Male Chicks Ground Up
From the Associated Press:
An animal rights group is calling on the nation's largest grocery story chains to post warnings on egg cartons that unwanted male chicks are ground up alive, after videotaping the common industry practice at an Iowa egg hatchery.
The article goes on to explain that "instantaneous euthanasia" by grinding is considered "a standard practice supported by the animal veterinary and scientific community." This article does not mention the other standad poultry industry practice of debeaking.
