In the News, but not News to us...

With the recent recall of millions of pounds of beef, the media is *finally* giving people a glimpse of the horrors that occur on a daily basis within the factory farming industry. We've known about the mistreatment and misery that the animals endure for years since we started visiting the Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, a sanctuary for animals rescued from the meat/dairy industry. I've seen pictures and heard stories that have haunted me. Animals crammed into tiny pens, mangled and left to suffer and die. It happens every day. If you've ever eaten at a fast food place, I guarantee you've tasted the flesh of an animal that suffered or worse.

If you haven't seen the recent footage, I urge you to check out a few sites that show exactly what goes on before the meat reaches your mouth.

Thank you for posting that. Eye-opening, as usual.
(Oh, and FYI, the link to farmsanctuary is spelled wrong, so it doesn't take you there.)
