HSUS Investigation Exposes One of Egg Industry's Cruelest Factory Farms
|The Humane Society of the United States|
Last winter, an employee at a Michael Foods egg factory farm in Wakefield, Nebraska, documented the routine mistreatment of thousands of hens. The employee’s primary job was simple: remove dead birds. The employee pulled hundreds of corpses out of cages for eight hours every day.
The employee also carried a hidden video camera. The footage from the farm shows live hens caught in cage wires and confined in cages with dead birds; sick and injured hens; and hens dying from dehydration and starvation, just inches away from food and water.
