Sad example of ANIMAL CRUELTY. DEMAND better treatment of our food animals. We are supposed to be HUMAN and HUMANE. This is pathetic.

From Tyson: Ms. Cathy Williams writes:
Thank you for your email. Tyson does not own or operate this Wyoming farm. We do not tolerate the mistreatment of animals by any of our suppliers. Since May, when the undercover video shot at this Wyoming farm surfaced, the supplier has been thoroughly investigated by our Office of Animal Well-Being. We were satisfied by the operator’s corrective actions, which included its work with on-site animal welfare consultants and retraining its workforce in proper animal handling. We also understand the company made management changes and terminated some employees after its own internal investigation.
It should be noted that Tyson Foods does not purchase hogs raised on this farm for our pork process plants. We have a small, but separate hog buying business that purchases aged sows from this farm; however, these animals are sold to other companies and are not used in Tyson’s pork processing business.
