Farm animals are exempt from the animal welfare act. The cruelty taking place is horrendous, most cows are dismembered while still alive. Chickens are boiled alive many times and referred to as "Red Birds". I've seen some undercover footage at a tyson slaughterhouse where workers pull the heads off chickens going by on a process line. They also stomp on them, rub tobacco and such in their eyes and throw them against walls. It's just a disgrace what happens behind closed doors and out of the public eye. Personally, I don't see any difference between cats, dogs, cows, pigs, chickens, etc. There all animals. Why treat some differently than the others? If you gave pigs, cows and chickens a chance, you would see that they are very similiar to dogs and cats. An animal is an animal. Period. You know what they say about assumption? It's the ******* of all *********.
