Tyson fires 10 U.S. workers after video captures chicken abuse

CHICAGO | BY TOM POLANSEK

Tyson Foods Inc said it has fired 10 workers who were captured abusing breeder chickens in Virginia in a secretly recorded video released by an animal rights group on Thursday.

The company also said it will retrain workers who handle live poultry on animal welfare policies after the latest instances of abuse came to light.

The video by the activist group Compassion Over Killing showed Tyson workers at several facilities punching, kicking and flinging live birds. One employee was shown crushing the head of a live chicken under his boot.

The footage, recorded in May and June, was posted on the website of the activist group, which fights for animal rights and encourages vegetarianism. (cok.net/)
