I have a fat, fluffy stuffed lamb on my bed from Bath & Bodyworks. She’s very laid back – she doesn’t go looking for trouble, doesn’t pry into other people’s doing’s or lack of doing’s. Normally, I’m so laid back I put her to shame. I make her look like a plump little white, curly busy body.
However, I do tend to make as much noise as I think needs to be made if someone is doing something cruel or inhumane to another person or animal.
With that said, I want to give you a link below to a disturbing story a PETA investigation found. I’m a ridiculously emotional person – you know the stereotypical person that cries during sad movies? She’s me! I had to leave my computer halfway through the story because I couldn’t see through the water works. I minimized the page and came back to it 30 minutes later – after a cup of green tea. I guess green tea is my security blanket.
I guess you’ve figured out by now that it isn’t a story you should approach lightly. In fact, if you’re as emotionally-inclined as I am – you might be better off with just the headlines.
I’m not anti-meat, I’m anti-cruelty. People don’t have to behave as cruel beasts, yet that’s exactly what the individuals at this Iowa pig factory farm did. This farm supplies pigs who are raised and killed for Hormel products.
If you love animals too, however, you will probably want to know what’s going on. Sometimes the truth hurts like heck, but change can’t be brought about or needless suffering ended without it. The first link is to the story that had me running to my green tea. The second one is a short, but sickening, ammendment. The third one, and the most important one, is to a page where you can sign a petition of sorts to make your voice heard. These helpless animals can’t speak for themselves, they need us to do it for them.
I for one intend to yell.
Before anyone jumps my case, I’m not condemning what anyone eats. I’m simply saying, there is NO NEED FOR CRUELTY AND NEEDLESS SUFFERING EVER. I hope you’ll add your name to the campaign.
