McDonald's and Target have both dumped egg supplier Sparboe Farms after the release of a video showing multiple instances of animal cruelty at the supplier's facilities in Colorado, Iowa and Minnesota, the Associated Press reports.

The group Mercy for Animals posted the video, which includes graphic footage of a person swinging a chicken around and another person suffocating a chick with his or her bare hands.

Sparboe tells the AP that it is "shocked" by the video and at least four employees have been identified as "complicit."

The video is posted after the jump. Warning: It contains graphic depictions of cruelty to animals.
