Tyson Foods has fired employees, changed its policies and pledged to re-train its workers after an undercover video captured scenes of graphic animal cruelty.
The footage, secretly captured by animal rights group Compassion Over Killing, shows workers at a Tyson chicken breeding farm hitting, punching and throwing chickens. One clip captures a supervisor suffocating a chicken by standing on its head.
