Voilà une excellente initiative afin de sensibiliser les gens au sort réservé à toutes ces pauvres bêtes qui seront sacrifiées. Bravo !!!

I certainly wished it was easy to determine what is and is not humanely raised meat. Is it grass fed or pasture raised? Is it how the animal was slaughtered? Does it have to be certified? I think the transparency is what is needed, and a change in how people view meat as part of the diet.

It means not having the right to decide your fate, if you live or die!
