Making Food Choices can Prevent Abuse to Innocent Animals

I understand the food chain. I get it!

But do animals need to be abused? Kicked? Abused?Murdered?

KFC suppliers cram birds into huge waste-filled factories, breed and drug them to grow so large that they can’t even walk, and often break their wings and legs. At slaughter, the birds’ throats are slit and they are dropped into tanks of scalding-hot water—often while they are still conscious. It would be illegal for KFC to abuse dogs, cats, pigs, or cows in these ways.

Employees have been seen, forcibly removing eggs from the live chickens body, just to thrown them at other employees.

KFC’s own animal welfare advisers have asked the company to take steps to eliminate these abuses, but KFC refuses to do so. Many advisers have now resigned in frustration.

Turkeys have it no better!

Most of us buy meat at the store and have NO IDEA where it comes from or how it gets to us. Do you most meats are badly abused by employees? Animals are beaten, PUNCHED, thrown around, kicked, murdered while alive, some are thrown into scalding pots to kill them, etc, etc. INFLICTING NEEDLESS CRUELTY. I think it takes a special kind employee for this job. One that is a little twisted. One that enjoys inflicting UNNECESSARY pain and torture while the animal is still alive, waiting to be slaughtered.

Would you treat your dog that way???

More than 300 million turkeys are killed in the U.S. every year – 40 million for Thanksgiving dinners alone. In nature, turkeys are protective and nurturing parents, as well as fast runners, who are able to use reason to outwit their pursuers. But most turkeys killed for food are raised in unnatural conditions, crammed by the thousands into windowless warehouses, where disease, smothering and heart attacks are common. Turkeys are drugged and bred to grow so large, so quickly that their legs are often unable to withstand their own weight. Countless birds slowly starve to death within inches of food after they become crippled and are unable to move.


Do we really need to eat meat?
