http://ezinearticles.com/?113-Facts-About-Animal-Cruelty&id=5418388 Get the FACTS out there for people to digest. We are "the most intelligent species on the planet" yet each year we slaughter and torture billions of animals... the numbers are so large, the scale is so MASSIVE, it's incomprehensible. What reference do you have for 9 billion chickens being slaughtered/tortured each year? Can you even picture that? It ain't good for our health or morals, and it's certainly not fair to suffering animals who feel like you, get scared like you, feel pain like you, nurture and care for their young, and soooo many things we value in ourselves... why not value it in them? What is our right? What is our reason? Profit? Cheap, unhealthy food? ALL THINGS CONSIDERED IT'S NOT WORT IT. AND IT CAN BE CHANGED. SORRY FOR YELLING, BUT SRSLY CMON. GET A GRIP. NO, GET EDUCATED. SHARE EDUCATION. GET MAD. CHANGE THINGS. And have a nice day! Do your part and spread the word on your blog or social media!
