SANTA CRUZ, Calif. -- The Santa Cruz District Attorney's Office said Wednesday that it does not plan to file charges against a Central Coast hatchery accused of animal abuse.

Washington D.C.-based animal rights group Compassion Over killing released a video that is says shows abuse to ducklings by Cal-Cruz Hatchery in Live Oak.

The group released the video Wednesday and said it was disappointed that the district attorney's office hadn't yet filed charges.

During a news conference, a group spokeswoman said they want the court of public to weigh in.

"It's disturbing to us that this case has not been taken to court, and that's why we're releasing this video," said Erica Meier, of Compassion For Killing. "We can show this video to the public and let the court of public opinion decide."

The president of the hatchery said the company is up to code and follows regulations.

"What we do here is a poultry hatchery, and we produce day old chicks in a legal way by industry standards and humane," said John
Collins,Cal-Cruz Hatchery president.

Prosecutors said they are "well aware" of the accusations made against Cal-Cruz, but that charges won't be filed based on a review of all available evidence.

The district attorney's office also said that it has a history of aggressively prosecuting animal rights cases and take the case seriously.
