SPRINGDALE, Ark. — Tyson Foods says it is investigating allegations of brutal treatment of chickens at a farm that raises birds for the company.

A whistleblower’s video was released last week by the advocacy group “Mercy for Animals.”

It showed farm workers throwing crates of baby chickens and leaving injured birds to starve.

Tyson says it takes the allegations seriously and will not tolerate improper treatment of animals.
