Huffington Post thought enough of this video story to present it, even though many of us will not be able to watch it. It is enough to know that this kind of thing actually goes on in the United States, 2009. What ever happened to animal cruelty laws?
You can tell a lot about the character of a person by the way he treats his animals. I wonder if that also applies to the character of a nation?

(AP) WASHINGTON -- An undercover video shot by an animal rights group at an Iowa egg hatchery shows workers discarding unwanted chicks by sending them alive into a grinder, and other chicks falling through a sorting machine to die on the factory floor.
Chicago-based Mercy for Animals said it shot the video at Hy-Line North America's hatchery in Spencer, Iowa, over a two-week period in May and June. The video was obtained Monday by The Associated Press.
