Animal Hall of Shame-This should be Worldwide!
7 years ago

thanks anita. great link but so heartbreaking!

next time someone asks why we're not defending humans, send them to the link anita posted then ask how many cases they were aware of mentioned on the list and how many organizations do they think are defending these causes.

FACTORY FARMING
7 years ago

Behind the storybook images of farm animals are the harsh realities of 'factory farms', where pigs, veal calfs, hens and rabbits are forced to live their entire lives in steel cages, cement stals or crates barely larger then their own bodies.

More than 162 million "food animals" are slaughtered every week in the US, and none dies a painless death. For livestock, from transport to stunning to hoisting to death is a journey filled with terror.  Even less fortunate are the "downers", sick or injured animals who are dragged to death or left to die where they fall.

WE ALL LOVE ANIMALS; WHY DO WE CALL SOME 'PETS' AND OTHERS 'DINNER'?

Hello all, I thought I would share a letter that I just received from the Humane Society.  It's important to know that our food is coming from downed animals, and I am not having it, so I wrote and signed all petitions, wrote the Congress & my Reps..thought I would share this one..Wado {ty}..much love and "dohiyi" {peace}FreeSpiritRunning...xxxooo

Btw...you can just type all of the http's in your address bar on the top of your page...they should work..sorry you can't get to them here...but it is of utter importance that we stop this!  Thank you all...Many blessings of love and light...

Dear Michele,

Thank you for asking the USDA to ban all downers from the food
supply, to prevent abuses such as those we documented at
Hallmark.

Remember to tell your friends and family how they can help:

?

If you have a few moments more, here are three additional things
you can do to help protect farm animals.

1. Ask your U.S. Representative to support the Farm Animal
Stewardship Purchasing Act:
https://community.hsus.org/campaign/FED_2007_stewardship_act/w5g7xe7rowted3b
?

2. Urge Congress to pass the Downed Animal and Food Safety
Protection Act:
https://community.hsus.org/campaign/2007_downed_animals3/w5g7xe79oeei386
?

3. Make a donation to support our work to end the cruel
treatment of farm animals:

Thank you for all you do on behalf of animals.
