Intruder Clubbed 1,000 Chickens to Death

Law-enforcement officials in California’s Central Valley are on the hunt for at least one intruder involved in clubbing to death nearly 1,000 chickens with a golf club at a Foster Farms plant last month. Police say they believe there was more than one person involved. In a statement, Foster Farms called the killing an “unconscionable act of animal cruelty. This appears to be a random act of violence. It is the express policy of Foster Farms to treat its birds humanely and with compassion. Any intentional act to the contrary is unacceptable.”
