"ACTIVISTS, WEGMANS FIGHT OVER ANIMAL CRUELTY CHARGES "

ROCHESTER, N.Y. A vegetarian activist group is using video footage to accuse Rochester-based Wegmans Food Markets Inc. of animal cruelty.Compassionate Consumers produced a 30-minute documentary showing group members removing chicken corpses from wire cages and freeing hens snagged in the cages. The footage was taken after activists broke into the Wegmans Egg Farm in Wayne County three times last summer.

Company spokeswoman Jo Natale denies the cruelty charges, and promised to prosecute the activists "to the full extent of the law." Natale said company experts suspect that not all the footage is from the Wegmans farm.
