Video Shows Chicks Getting Ground Up Alive

Who can resist the lure of watching adorable chicks peeping all the way to the chick grinder? Not me. And now, having seen the illicit video, I can with certainty report that God is dead and humanity is a cancer.

This footage, shot with a hidden camera at Hy-Line Hatchery, shows male chicks systematically culled and ground up alive, due to their inability to produce eggs. If seeing the merciless machinery shown here doesn’t turn your stomach, a brief interview with one of the food processors will. The assembly-line worker casually talks about maimed chicks-the ones who slip through the cracks-as if they were sparkplugs or staplers… and, in a way, I suppose, they are.

Still, there’s gotta be a better way than veganism.
