Using a hidden camera, a COK investigator documented shocking abuses forced upon newly-hatched chicks and ducklings while employed at Cal-Cruz Hatcheries in 2009. The video evidence was immediately turned over to the Santa Cruz County Animal Services Authority and the District Attorneys Office. In response, a follow-up investigation conducted by humane law enforcement not only corroborated our evidence of abuse and neglect but also resulted in the impoundment of 88 ducklings.

Despite this additional documentation by authorities, the District Attorneys office held the case for several months, and in late April 2010, officially declined to prosecute the hatchery for violations of state animal protection laws.

Watch our undercover video—and you be the judge.
