Ok, since the OP didn't want to do their homework and find out why this video was put out there and why they were doing this to the baby chicks, I
did. I did this so this thread would not be just a voyeur thread for those who love to express outrage and then go on with their lives but I doubt it
will change anything.
This article on a blog tells us more but I do not agree with the article:
Ground Up Baby Chickens – Is It Your Fault?
Undercover video was shot by Mercy for Animals showing how male baby chicks are ground up alive as a means of quick disposal of the unwanted
chicks. Since male chickens produce no eggs and hatchery’s do not raise chickens for slaughter due to the length of time it takes to fatten them up,
what else can they do but grind them to shreds alive.
What I do not agree with is accepting that this is my fault for eating eggs. I WILL NOT take responsibility for the actions of producers of my food.
AND, I will continue to eat eggs, even though I find the tactics of this producer of eggs disgusting and twisted.
As an egg eater, this is not my fault
. I am sick and tired of people trying to tell me that things that are out of my direct
are my fault. Our president even apologizes to the world for me, without my permission, even though I am one person who is trying to live
my life righteously, minding my own business. It is a deflection is where the blame should fall - on the perpetrators
That said, this producer should certainly be shut down for the tactics that they
have chosen to employ.
Rant over... go back to your life...
