Calif Chicken Hatchery Abuse Revealed

LOS ANGELES ( KTLA) -- Undercover video Tuesday reveals what one animal rights group calls clear evidence of animal abuse inside a California chicken breeding farm.

The group, Compassion Over Killing, shot video of chicks being mutilated by hatchery machinery, drowning in the filthy water of a waste bucket and being stuffed alive down a drain.

The video was shot at the Cal-Cruz Hatcheries in Santa Cruz over a one month period in 2009. Compassion Over Killing then brought the video to KTLA.
