Factory Farms: Making Life Hell for Animals and Neighbors
A Meat and Dairy Industries Article from All-Creatures.org

All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize. This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves. As we continue to disregard the value of the lives of the billions of animals we eat, we also are destroying our air, land and water.

 "So that's The Rule - the N.C. Stink Rule that frees factory farms to pollute unchecked on an industrial level, serving giant corporations and hiding behind the cover of 'agriculture.'"

According to an article on NewsObserver.com, North Carolina residents suffering with factory farm pollution will continue to do just that.

Factory farms for chickens, turkeys, and other animals produce high concentrations of ammonia and other noxious gases, causing serious distress to those who live nearby.

Several residents are struggling with unpleasant odors, including Donna Bryant, who cannot let her grandchildren play in the backyard anymore because of the large chicken farm nearby.

Bryant explains, "This place we've lived, almost 30 years, it's our nest-egg. My husband and I are now completely overwhelmed by the stench of chicken houses built directly behind us. Besides the awful smell, we deal with flies that we didn't have before, and the smell getting inside our home. Don't know how long we'll even be able to stay here."

According to the North Carolina Department of Natural Resources, these large-scale farms and agricultural facilities aren't subject to the "general odor rule."

The author concludes: "So that's The Rule - the N.C. Stink Rule that frees factory farms to pollute unchecked on an industrial level, serving giant corporations and hiding behind the cover of 'agriculture.'"
