The Humane Society of the United States is criticizing the type of poultry farm where an estimated 85,000 hens died in Connecticut last week.  The structure collapsed at the Kofkoff Farm in Bozrah  in January’s heavy snows.

Wayne Pacelle of The Humane Society says it’s inherently cruel to put that many birds in cages in a structure,  and says he testified against  such confinement systems four years ago,  calling for the egg industry to switch to cage-free operations.
