We can judge the heart of man by his treatment of animals - Immanual Kant

The website for the prestigious muckraking British news source
guardian.co.uk has published a video that was secretly filmed and produced
by the group Animal Aid.  The video exposes the horrendous treatment of
so-called "food animals" in slaughterhouses.  It is painful to watch, but
worth it;  and it is a particularly good argument for those who still think
that animals are no longer killed in a painful way.  Some would argue that
these ideas of painless slaughter come from programs like the recent Oprah show
who had Michael Pollin as a guest.  On the show he promoted this myth by siting
possibly the only  factory food company that uses Temple Grandin's less frightful
slaughter techniques [see our post on the Oprah show's vegan program.]
