AR group sues poultry hatchery, alleging animal abuse

SANTA CRUZ - A Washington, D.C.-based animal rights group has filed a
lawsuit against a Live Oak hatchery alleging numerous examples of animal abuse.

Compassion Over Killing, a nonprofit animal advocacy organization focused on cruelty to animals in agriculture, contends that Cal-Cruz Hatcheries Inc. routinely abused animals at its facility, and seeks to stop the alleged abuse. The suit stems from an investigation in 2009, in which an employee of Compassion Over Killing secretly documented the treatment of chickens and ducks with a hidden video camera.
