DRESDEN, Tenn. (AP) — The owners of a Tennessee chicken farm have been charged with animal cruelty after an undercover video caught them abusing the birds. According to an affidavit in the General Sessions Court of Weakley County, T&S Poultry owners Thomas and Suzanne Blassingame are accused of "stabbing them with a large spike attached to a pole and failing to promptly and properly euthanize the chickens." The incident occurred between July 28 and August 23 in Dukedom, Tennessee, an unincorporated community in both Graves County, Kentucky, and Weakley County, Tennessee, that straddles the state line in the western part of both states.
