INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
In a perfect world, cows wouldn’t be consumed in the first place. During this lifetime, we must demand that animals killed for food be spared gratuitous pain and suffering. Israel’s Chief Rabbi has failed to uphold a promise to reject shackling and hoisting. Some 80 percent of Israel’s imported kosher meat begins in South America with alert cows chained upside down by one leg. Muscles and tendons rip apart as the terrified cow dangles for minutes...
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
