Kamloops Daily News
"Images of carves forced into veal pens, chicks having their beaks cut
off, a cow hanging alive with its throat slit -- all were on show for
passers-by to view as an animal rights van came through Kamloops earlier
"Anthony Marr, a spokesman for Heal Our Planet Earth Global Eco Org, said
he set up Tuesday night at Victoria Street and Third Avenue, showing
graphic videos of factory farming, grizzly bear hunting and fur trapping
on a 54-inch television.
"The TV is housed in a trailer behind the recreational vehicle that will
be home to Marr and Kelowna dietitian Brenda Davis, along with her
14-year-old son, when they tour 37 U.S. states and four Canadian Provinces
between January and June next year.
"'Factory farming hits home more because most people eat meat. They tend
not to want to look at it. It is emotional, if people love animals, and
believe in compassion for animals.'
"An opponent of the B.C. grizzly hunt for years, Marr said the factory
farm footage affected him personally when he saw it. 'I used to eat meat
until 1999 when I saw similar footage.'"
