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.
Skin scorched, horns severed, testicles slashed; crowded feedlots
BEEF. IT'S WHAT'S FOR DINNER.
Beaks seared, bones crushed, feet skewered; darkened sheds (20,000 per)
The Incredible Edible Egg.
Lungs ammonia-clogged, tails amputated, legs deformed; ?iron maidens?
PORK. THE OTHER WHITE MEAT. Don't be blah.
Necks chained, flesh anemic, stomachs ulcered; cramped, solitary crates
VEAL. EAT SMART. EAT WELL.
