I have long been aware of some horrible things happening in the meat and factory farm industries (see "Slaughterhose...by Gail Eisnitz"). I am shocked and sadened to see this video. YES! I would definately pay more for ANY food product if I knew it came from humanely treated animals. How can I help?? Who do I write to??

Kosher food assures you the animal was humanely killed. Also, the Rabbi was there to observe it. It's also better for you because it has to be organic. I always eat kosher whenever I can, and I'm not even Jewish!

It's great that you want to help, but buying "humanely raised" animals will not stop these types of practices. Animals raised in so-called humane ways still end up in the same slaughterhouses as the "factory-farmed" animals and the "by-products" are still killed by the millions (as these chicks are) when they are of no use to that particular industry. Ever wonder what happens to the male calves born into the dairy industry? All are treated as mere commodities, production units, not as the living creatures that they are.

These practices are unacceptable to me. I don't need an animal to live and die in these conditions so that I can survive.

Animals are animals, to believe they are more than that is to raise them to the status of humans.

Animals are sentient, as humans are. They feel pain and suffer, as humans do. Feeling compassion for animals doesn't mean one is placing them above humans, it just means understanding those simple facts.
meats are yummy

I used to like fried chicken myself, years ago. But, that was long before I found out about the suffering that animals have to endure to get to my plate. I will not support an industry that exploits animals for financial gain, while treating them as mere production units.
i love meats

You won't get any arguments from me regarding PETA. I don't support that org because I disagree with the silly stunts they pull. I feel it takes the focus off the animals and their suffering.
