Eggs are the new veal

Paul Shapiro, director of farm animal campaigns for the Humane Society of the United States, pronounced last fall at a farm animal welfare conference in Toronto sponsored by the Canadian Coalition for Farm Animals that "Eggs are the new veal."

About 98% of eggs in Canada come from laying hens that confined in "battery cages," small wire-mesh cages where four or more birds are crammed together in an area the size of a microwave oven. Surveys indicate that the overwhelming majority of Canadians agree that confining farm animals to small cages that prevent them from turning around is unacceptable.

The pain and suffering laying hens suffer during their lives, and at the end of them, is unacceptable. There is no justification for the exploitation of animals in the name of profit and pleasure. Although the transition to consume free-cage eggs would alleviate some of the hen’s suffering, a plant-based diet would certainly be more effective.
