In yesterday’s Blog I mentioned the “Letters and Responses” section
of our website and quoted two encouraging letters from Lolita
Today I want to share with you a Letter to the Editor by Shelley
Davide-Camacho originally published in the Rochester Democrat and
Chronicle – 31 August 2007.
The world needs more people who are willing to expose the truth as
Shelley has in this excellent letter:
Horrors inflicted at our bidding
NFL player Michael Vick has pleaded guilty to federal dogfighting
charges. Subjecting animals to any kind of abuse is evil and cowardly.
The majority of persons who are judging Michael Vick are nothing more
Millions of animals are slaughtered in factory farms each year. Not
only are they forced to live in deplorable, inhumane conditions, they
are drugged, tortured, maimed, slaughtered, boiled and skinned alive
while fully conscious. Anyone who eats meat, cheese, eggs or drinks a
glass of milk is directly responsible for the premeditated murder,
torture and abuse of an innocent animal.
People who eat or use animal products are in effect paying
slaughterhouse worker "hitmen" and "hired guns" to abuse and kill
animals for them so they can wolf down a hot dog in five minutes. I
have asked many self-proclaimed "dog/animal lovers" to view videos on
the Web sites of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals,
all-creatures.org and Humane Farming Association, and the majority
refuse because they don't want to know or get upset. Hypocrites!
