I saw the video of one of these the other day and I truly felt like dying inside. At that instant I wanted the dwarf star to hit earth because what other hope is there but to completely destroy the evil in this world. Unfortunately all the good would be destroyed as well.
There are not enough people that fight these causes. The majority of the people consume and that is all they do. No thought into putting a little time and researching what really happens to these animals that are all sentient creatures and deserve as we do, to live their own lives.
Words such as horrifying and agony are not sufficient to express the absolute atrocities that these animal farming companies and people commit without the living realization that these creatures feel pain, loneliness and suffering just like us.
Personally I would like to see a government that bans the eating of all animals. You would think in a 1st world nation that these atrocities would be hugely illegal. But they don't give a damn. So it's up to us to change things and force that change upon them.

Ah, the cycle of life. Everything that lives must die someday.
If you are afraid of little chicks feelings being hurt by going into a meat grinder just remember that the little chicks death is most likely instant and suffering is kept to a microsecond of time.

But it is an inescapable fact that humans are omnivores. Even at it's most primitive level, killing for food is less than pretty. BUT it is normal nonetheless.

I'm not going to watch the video. Knowing this sort of thing happens is depressing enough. Sure, I eat meat, but grinding anything alive is barbaric.

I even chuckled a few times, because it looked so bizarre.
Does that make me a sociopath?
“There is, unfortunately, no way to breed eggs that only produce female hens,” he continued. “If someone has a need for 200 million male chicks, we’re happy to provide them to anyone who wants them. But we can find no market, no need.”
Sadly, both the United Egg Producers and the Humane Society of the United States confirmed what Head had to say.
Furthermore Loworn warned that, “Virtually all egg farms, even those that sell cage-free eggs, get their hens from hatcheries that kill their male chicks.”

Killing for food is one thing, killing billions of animal (when you don't eat a morsel of it) because you don't want to deal with them, isn't.
Why else would you raise chickens?
Pretty much, but thanks for playing. Mass death can be funny sometimes you were saying?
