Everyone knows you don’t play with your food and you never choke your chicken at work. Apparently these Tyson employees didn’t get the memo. New video footage has been uncovered that shows them beating, throwing, kicking and of course choking chickens.
An animal rights group released the graphic video and it appears to show serious mistreatment of chickens by Tyson Foods employees in a Virginia plant. These actions have led to at least two Animal Control investigations.
Compassion Over Killing, an animal-advocacy organization, said the videos were recorded by an undercover investigator who represented the group. The videos were taken at four different facilities where Tyson workers process chickens. Continue reading

Arkansas Game and Fish Commission confirmed that a man eating piranha was caught in Arkansas’ Lake Bentonville last week.
Piranha are a scary fish with sharp fang-like teeth and rank among several species of exotic animals that are unlawful to import or transport.
According to AGFC Assistant Chief of Communications, Keith Stephens, the fish was caught on Friday. Stephens said people have caught piranhas in Arkansas before, but they don’t last long. “We get a few pacus and piranhas caught from time to time. They get to big from someone’s aquarium and they release them. They cannot survive our low winter water temperatures so no populations have ever been established,” Stephens said. h/t katv

Beverly Carter, a Little Rock, Arkansas, real estate agent, failed to return home after showing a vacant, bank-owned home to an unknown person.
Carter, 49, was set to show the home in a small town on the eastern outskirts of Little Rock and three days later, she is still missing.
After not hearing from her for three hours, her husband of 35 years rushed over to the house later that evening and found the door to the house open, his wife’s locked car in the driveway and no sign of Carter.
On Saturday morning, a group of approximately 250 volunteers and authorities gathered to scour the area around the home by foot and ATV for clues that could help find the missing agent. source
