ALL male chicks are killed in painful, horrible ways (ground alive, left to starve and suffocate to death in garbage bins and bags, gassed, electrocuted, etc...). 😢
Their Mommas are forced to lay huge amounts of large eggs until their bodies are weak and depleted, and then they are cruelly slaughtered for meat... 😢
We have to keep educating and telling the truth, because animals are depending on us... _________________
Male chicks: "Along with defective and slow-hatching female chicks, they are trashed as soon as they hatch. Upon breaking out of their shells, instead of being sheltered by a mother’s wings, the newborns are ground up alive, electrocuted, or thrown into trashcans where they slowly suffocate on top of one another, peeping to death while a human foot stomps them down to make more room for more chicks. Because the male chicken of the egg industry cannot lay eggs, and has not been genetically manipulated for profitable meat production, he is of no use to the egg industry. Destruction of unwanted male chicks is a worldwide practice." Egg laying Hens: "A small bird, forced to churn out huge numbers of large eggs, this hen is prone to a cruel condition known as Uterine Prolapse. When a small chicken pushes and strains day after day to expel large eggs, her uterus pushes out through the vent area leading to painful infection and a slow, agonizing death. The egg industry deprives hens of all food or severely restricts their rations from one to three weeks straight to manipulate egg laying and market prices, and to “save feed costs.” This practice is called Forced Molting." http://www.upc-online.org/chickens/chickensbro.html
In a world spinning out of control, with violence, abuse and cruelty towards our fellow animals (of ALL species, including humans), becoming more the “norm” every day…what is so hard about simply being kind and gentle? 🙁
Fact: We can't breath underwater and fish can't breath on land... Can you imagine how horrible it is to be gasping and desperately trying to breath, while trying to get away from your tormentors?
Fish feel pain and fear like other animals do. Please don't allow ANY animal to suffer or die for you. You wouldn't want to suffer or die for someone else's greed either... Leave animals alone to be free and live their own lives. #govegan
