Animal Abuse Once Again Caught on Film at Tyson Chicken

  2. 2. Introduction  Though she is currently still in law school, Maral Cavner has already made great strides in the world of animal rights, a field she would like to work in once she is an attorney. To support the humane treatment of animals everywhere, Maral Cavner is an enthusiastic supporter of the Animal Legal Defense Fund and their work. In the summer of 2015, the Animal Legal Defense Fund sent anonymous investigators into a Tyson chicken slaughter plant to document suspected animal cruelty violations. Over a 21-day period, an investigator observed “horrendous” violations of animal and workplace laws, showing a systematic disregard for the well-being of both animals and factory workers.
  3. 3. Animal Abuse  In an anonymous interview, the investigator suggests that the Tyson requirement for workers to hang 35 chickens per minute on the slaughter line contributes greatly to poor conditions. Workers scramble to arrange the live birds quickly enough, often causing the birds to get crushed, maimed, or suffocated in the process. In addition to causing drawn-out and inhumane deaths for chickens, these conditions are uniformly hazardous to workers. Employees routinely get feces in their eyes and mouth, resulting in blisters, infections, and respiratory complications. If you are interested in joining the fight against systematic animal cruelty, consider signing the ALDF petition online at: org2.salsalabs.com/o/5154/p/dia/action3/common/public/ ?action_KEY=21276.
