The important point is that animals should not be treated this way in the first place. They have a right to kindness and dignity!

That picture was taken by Rick Dove who features in David Kirby's book "Animal Factory." I highly recommend "Animal Factory" for an overview of what has been going on regarding the spread of factory farms and the destruction they cause in so many ways.

After reading "Animal Factory" and seeing the kind of devastation featured in articles such as this, it amazes me that there is not outrage across America. Everyone seems to be sleepwalking.

The significant point is that animals ought to not be treated this way in the primary place. They have a right to compassion and self-esteem!
