CRIMINAL ANIMAL ABUSE
In Octobe 2015 r Tyrson's of Springdale Arkansas was charged with criminal animal abuse. Those who buy chicken at Wendy's, McDonald's, Burger King, WalMart, KFC, Taco Bell, IGA, Beef O'Brady's and countless smaller opeartions are unknowingly supporting this infliction of pain. Tyson's has many prison contracts. John Tyson's wealth, says Forbes, is 1.58 billion dollars.
Their largest slaughterhouse is their cow murder facility in Dakota City, Nebraska. Other plants include feed mills, hatcheries, farms and tanneries. http://www.examiner.com/article/candice-bergen-slams-tyson-foods-for-ani http://www.tysontorturesanimals.com/tyson http://tysontorture.com http://www.peta.org/

TYSON FOODS: TOO BIG
"Every week, Tyson's 54 chicken plants, 13 cow slaughter plants, and six pig slaughter plants murder and package 42.5 million chickens, (22,050,000,000 billion a year) 170,000 cows, steers and bulls, (8640,000 million a year( and 347,891 pigs 18,044,000 mill a year. Other plants include feed mills, hatcheries, farms and tanneries. In 2014, 115,000 people, who work at more than 300 facilities, 90 of which are in the US" This quote is from the Wikipedia link below.
EXPLOITATION OF THE POOR
Tyson's employs the poorest of the poor. There is high turnover because only psychopaths would enjoy the massacre. Because of the great stress to employees from the constant bloodletting and because of the negative publicity, Tyson's employs chaplains. The company says they are not faith based but faith friendly.
Is there a corrupt relationship between Tyson's and PBS, such that a docuementary on Tyson chaplains virtually ignored the trauma of constant
murder of animals? Is PBS censoring public awareness of Tyson brutality to chickens? PBS has over 200 cooking show, Over 95% of them involve
the baking, boiling, and frying of the flesh of chickens.

CRIMINAL HIRING OF UNDOCUMENTED WORKERS, SAY MANY
The jury chose to accept executive and not lower manager testimony about
Tyson policies. Middle managers said higher ups forced them to hire undocumented workers. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/tyson-foods-acquitted-of-illegal-hiring/ http://www.rense.com/general18/USchargestyson.htm
TYSON IS THE SECOND BIGGEST ANIMAL MURDERER IN THE WORLD AFTER BRAZIL'S JBS
Tyson is the biggest animal murderer in the US, and behind only Brazil's JBS
in slaughter of innocents for meat.
TYSON HAS A LOCK ON THE SUPPLY OF BIGGEST FAST FOOD CHAINS
Tyson is the source for chicken at KFC, Taco Bell, McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, WalMart, Kroger, IGA, Kroger, IGA, Beef O'Brady's, prisons, countless smaller operations. Tyson exports to 130 countries and has slaughterhouses in China and India.
USDA AND US COMMERCE DEPARTMENT CORRUPTION RE TYSON?
Perhaps Tyson's is behind the USDA demand that S. Africa buy American chickens or be cut off of the minimal foreign aid it is given.
CANCER, SALMONELLA, CAMPYLOBACTER, LEUKEMIA ETC FROM TYSON COW, PIG, AND CHICKEN FLESH http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-KK80zrXT8
31.5 million chickens just in the spring of 2015 and just in 1 part of Iowa died. Factory farming is one cause. Chicken and turkey diseases include leukemia (human chauvinists term the disease leukosis but it is transmissabe to humans by eating chickens), salmonella, campylobacteri, ecoli (colon bacteria), as well as diseases from the animal fat, insecticides, hormones and uric acid in chickens' flesh.
In the spring of 2015, 31.5 million chickens and turkeys died in just 1 part of Iowa... from avian flu. That is only a part of the total number.

WORKER INJURIES AND DEATHS
Some of the hazards of slaughterhouse work are deaths and injuries from the slicing machines, being exposed to freezing temperatures, kicks and bites of terrorized animals, high volume noise from screaming frightened animals, slipping on the grease, blood, urine and feces on the slaughterhouse floor, carbon monoxide.
Industrial Safety--Preventing Industrial Slaughterhouse Accidents:
A UFCW union steward has said that most worker accidents occur in slaughterhouses. Vegetarian, vegan and fruitarian diet prevent the following accidents:
Workers are kicked, bitten, and scratched in the head by terrified animals fighting for their lives unsuccessfully.
Contract ear problems from the screaming and shrieking of the animals,
Have problems with bones in relation to the cold storage rooms.
Cuts from the metal machinery, running into computer line knives.
Alcoholism and drug use from trying to deal with the animals' suffering they are constantly absorbing.
The reduction of OSHA staff and the use of illegal aliens to fill these jobs, some of the most unpopular in the industry, intrinsically means more accidents.
Electrocution from machinery near liquid secretions.
In slaughterhouses where pig flesh is scalded, there are frequent burns.
Open grease pits for blood, grease, feces, urine are traps for tired employees.
There is ligament tearing in the back, shoulders, and arms from the lifting of 100 lb. or several hundred lb. carcasses.
Carpal tunnel is a frequent complaint of meat cutters.
As a 1980's administration doubled the legal speed of the line, there is a consequent increase in accidents.
The deregulation of some slaughterhouses has meant less trained personnel.
In fish slaughter, there are also bites, scratches, hook accidents, fishing line accidents, drownings and other trauma.
Prevention of contracting the animals' diseases in contact with slaughterhouse fluids (blood, feces, urine, vomit).
Slip and fracture themselves on blood, urine, vomit and feces soaked floors,
Lung problems from constant exposure to feather dust (A Japanese movie shown on Bravo is a tale of peach trees cut down as their spirits speak to children.).
The Reagan administration doubled the speed of conveyor belts in slaughterhouses, making meat inspection even more unlikely than before. The USDA has since sped up the lines even more. As cancer ridden birds speed by, workers are exposed to a dizzying optical effect.
In 19th Century Britain butchers could not serve on juries. It was felt their jobs made them insensitive to violence and pain. The FBI profilers document that those who kill animals are more likely to kill human beings.
