Day-old chicks dumped and abandoned in a field

All the newspapers are covering this story.  I've chosen this link because it's the only one I can find that doesn't broadcast the upsetting video that goes with it.

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/feb/18/chicks-abandoned-peterborough-field

The article estimates 'About 1,000 day-old chicks have been abandoned in a field' - but in other reports the figure is given as 1,800.  angry    Had it been 10, or even a single one of these helpless creatures (believed to have originated from a commercial institution where they are bred for profit), it would not take away from the despicable nature of it.
