"Brutality to animals is cruelty to mankind - it is only the difference in the victim."
- Alphonse de Lamartine, 1847

On November 21, 2013, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) released these data. On each day of October, 2013, an average of:

  • 336,129 pigs were slaughtered (4 per second)
  • 93,548 cows were slaughtered (1 per second)
  • 6,712 sheep were slaughtered (one every 12 seconds)
  • 2,241 calves were slaughtered (one every 30 seconds)

TOTAL: This averages out to 307 brutal killings for every minute of every hour of every day during October of 2013.

Imagine three things.

  1.  The never-ending assembly lines
  2.  Each animal dies by partial beheading with a sharp knife while still alive
  3.  The volume of blood

 "I like children they are tasty."
- Albert Fish

Final words before his January 16, 1936 execution... Fish was a serial killer who was believed to have consumed children in every state. He was also known as The Brooklyn Vampire, the Werewolf of Wysteria the Moon Maniac, and the Boogeyman.
