Cruel reality

Imagine being locked in a shed, having scalding steam pumped inside then having the heat turned up.

This is the way thousands of pigs in the US were recently killed.

They were, effectively, boiled alive.

Millions of chickens have, likewise, suffered monstrously cruel deaths – slowly smothered when foam was pumped around their cages, ultimately smothering them.

These animals were “culled” because COVID-19 shut down numerous slaughterhouses but “depopulation” can take place whenever there is a viral outbreak.

Consequently, this cruelty must be regarded as part and parcel of the meat industry.

Clearly, if we support these industries with our consumer dollars, we are endorsing this cruelty.
