It's not just the manner of death that is cruel. Industry animals are needlessly tortured all their lives. Most are suffering physical and emotional
pain and agony from the moment they are born until the moment they mercifully die. Some industries are better than others, but none are good enough,
and the worst ones are absolutely deplorable.
Even those of us who don't really think or care much about industry animals, should be aware of what we eat, and care about the animals suffering for
the same reason we expect the use of anesthesia for surgery on our own pets and our own families, as well as the quality of the product. The animals
feel pain every bit as well as we do.
The industry's only goal is to make as large of a profit as possible, which means mass producing substandard animals while spending as little money
on their food, shelter and care as possible. Many animals are wasted, left to die sick and consumed by other hungry, crazed animals. Many are hurt in
dangerous conditions and left to suffer with broken limbs. All of them are crowded and most are either freezing or sweltering, laying in their
Some PETA individuals are extreme at times, but they have to be. Not enough people are listening! And they believe that SOMEBODY has to stand up for
the rights of the animals to be protected from such torture. They will know when to back off, and that will be when the animals are taken better care
of, when we demand a healthier happier product.
For most people, if we just see and think about what the industries are doing to hundreds of thousands of helpless animals, responsible people would
choose to support with our dollar those who take MORE reasonable care of the animals we will consume.
PETA is acting out of necessity, and trying desperately to make people aware. When we finally see the truth and horror only because it's forced in
our faces and we can't look the other way, let's not blame PETA for ruining our appetite.
