Dear Mark,

It’s sickening. Birds punched, thrown, and even sexually assaulted.

Even after all I’ve seen in the 16 years since I founded Mercy For Animals, I was still completely shocked by the horrific cruelty and violence our brave investigator just exposed at Tyson Foods—the world’s largest poultry company.

Working undercover at a Tyson Foods slaughterhouse in Mississippi, a courageous MFA investigator documented chickens being dumped, dropped, dragged, hit like punching bags, tortured for fun, and even sexually assaulted as they were violently slammed into shackles on the slaughter line. He also documented countless birds getting their heads ripped off while they were still alive and chirping.

Yesterday, MFA filed affidavits with the Leake County Court in Mississippi to initiate charges of a total of 33 counts of animal cruelty against Tyson Foods Inc. and six particularly malicious workers at the facility.

This important story broke this morning in USA Today.

 

This is the third time since July that we’ve busted Tyson Foods for torturing animals, and now TV legend Candice Bergen is lending her voice to our campaign to push for meaningful changes to alleviate much of the suffering these sensitive and intelligent animals are forced to endure.

But we need your help too.

Please, take a moment to sign our petition calling on Tyson Foods to implement less cruel killing methods and other meaningful animal welfare policies to prevent the worst forms of animal abuse in its facilities.

Then please share the hidden-camera video with friends and encourage them to take action too.

And remember, the most powerful choice we can make to prevent cruelty to animals is to leave chickens and other animals off our plates.

Sincerely,

Nathan Runkle

President
