ANIMALS ARE NOT PRODUCTS!
ALL animals care about THEIR lives. Farmed animals have intelligence, personalities, and social and emotional lives. Just like #dogs
If you wouldn't eat your dog or cat, why would you eat chickens, fish, pigs, cows, and sheep? They all value THEIR lives and wish not to suffer. Yet, on today's farms billions of animals are abused, exploited, and treated as mere commodities.
is cruelty on your plate! There are no federal laws that protect farmed animals from mistreatment during their lives on farms. Further, most state anti-cruelty laws exempt standard agricultural practices because cruelty, abuse and neglect towards animals is standard practice on most of today's farms.
A LIFETIME of SUFFERING.
Animals are bred for production, not good health. Due to gene, hormone, and feed manipulation they grow so fast and so large that their bones cannot support their own weight, causing foot and leg disorders, respiratory problems, and heart failure.
Animals are cruelly confined and overcrowded. Most pregnant pigs, egg laying chickens, and veal calves are confined in crates or cages so small they cannot freely turn around or even stretch their limbs. Other animals are combined by the hundreds or tens of thousands in filthy, overcrowded, disease-ridden sheds. These conditions thwart the animals basic need to #exercise
, play, explore, socialize normally and maintain proper hygiene.
Animals are mutilated without painkillers.
Sick or injured animals are denied veterinary care.
Animals are painfully killed on farms. Animals too small, sick, or injured to "produce" are killed using crude and violent methods such as being stomped to death, having their necks wrung, having their heads slammed into the concrete floor, being gassed or allowed to die slow death from dehydration and starvation.
endure a violent slaughter. "Humane" slaughter is a myth.
All beings tremble before violence. All fear death. All love life. See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do? - #Buddha
