Animals on factory farms are treated as mere objects. The meat, dairy, and egg industries relegate them to intense and unimaginable cruelties: extreme confinement; brutal mutilations; and bloody, violent deaths.
As if these atrocities weren’t terrible enough, the stuff fed to these animals will make you sick to your stomach.
Investigations have revealed that the factory farming industry feeds pigs and chickens animal carcasses as a way to cut production costs.
Yes, you read that right. Factory farmers essentially turn these innocent animals into cannibals. This is not only disgusting but also dangerous.
We wouldn’t do this to our companion animals. Can you imagine feeding your dog or cat another dog or cat?
Footage from a 2014 undercover investigation by The Humane Society of the United States shows pigs being fed diarrhea and the ground-up intestines of their own piglets at a factory farm in Kentucky. Sick!
It’s not just cows, pigs, and chickens who are fed these disgusting and dangerous diets. A Chinese seafood exporter was caught feeding fish a partial diet of feces from hundreds of pigs and geese in an attempt to cut costs. The FDA reports that seafood imports from China (around 27 percent of the seafood consumed by Americans) are often contaminated with salmonella.
It’s clear as day that factory farmers care about one thing and one thing only: profits. Their complete disregard for animal welfare and public health should concern everyone.
The best thing we can do is to remove our support from these deplorable industries and switch to a compassionate vegan diet.
