By C. David Coats
from the preface of his book: Old MacDonald's Factory Farm
Isn't man an amazing animal? He kills wildlife - birds,
kangaroos, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice,
foxes, and dingoes - by the millions in order to protect his domestic
animals and their feed.
Then he kills domestic animals by the billions and eats
This in turn kills man by the millions, because eating
all those animals leads to degenerative and fatal health conditions like
heart disease, kidney disease, and cancer.
So then man tortures and kills millions more animals to
look for cures for these diseases.
Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being
killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being
used to fatten domestic animals.
Meanwhile, some people are dying of sad laughter at the
absurdity of man, who kills so easily and so violently, and once a year
sends out a card praying for
'Peace on Earth'
