I love animals of all shapes and sizes. We currently have 4 dogs, 4 ducks, 3 cats, and 4 horses. What can I say, we have to the love to give, and the room to allow them to run around and enjoy life.
I grew up on a ranch, we always had at least 20 animals. Everything from chickens, to horses, and we love each and every one of them.
I know how the food chain works, and yes I eat meat. However I do not agree with treating animals badly just because they are raised specifically for meat. It’s wrong on so many levels. If you have been around animals, and love them; I’m sure you will agree they have feelings and hearts too. Then in no way deserve to experience being locked in crates, or pumped full of steroids to make them fatter. it’s all a desperate act to make someones wallet thicker, and it sickens me.
Do you know what a gestation crate is? it’s this tiny cage used to lock up breeding pig from their pork supply chains. Growing up we owned several pigs, and they are pretty cool animals, and in no way don’t deserve to play in the mud. Have you ever seen a pig roll around in the mud? It’s not only good for them, but they love it. Every living, breathing, creature deserves to enjoy life regardless of how short it is, or what they are being raised for. There are plenty of ranchers that raise pigs, chickens, cows, etc for the same purpose. They don’t find any reason to lock them up as if they are prisoners, why should food giants be allowed to get away with this.
Some food giants have announced that they will eliminate gestation crates such as Burger King, Costco, and McDonald, but that’s not enough. No animals should have to live this way. I do understand there is pelnty of us that eat meat, but is the touched these animals suffer fair? Shouldn’t they be allowed to enjoy their life? Criminals are locked in cages, not animals.
