Talk Back: The McFib and
Cruel Gestation Crates:
Yesterday, I wrote about by the slaughterhouse industry and pork producers, working hand-in-hand with the Obama administration, to nullify a to stop cruelty to farm animals too sick or injured to walk. There was widespread news coverage about the case, and most reporters interpreted the reactions of the justices as favoring the slaughterhouse industry and the Obama administration over the state of
and HSUS and the other animal
protection groups. It will be several months, in all likelihood, before the
high court issues its ruling. California
It’s not the only legal forum where we are battling the pork industry. Last week, The HSUS filed a for claiming that it keeps pigs in an “ideal” environment where their “every need is met,” and not surprisingly, it drew broad media attention and outrage. Our revealed a very different story at a
subsidiary: breeding pigs nearly
immobilized in narrow crates, some biting the bars until their mouths bled, and
animals with open sores and abscesses. Smithfield
Since Smithfield is a top supplier of pork to McDonald’s, we’re urging the fast food company to move away from gestation crates in its supply line and urging Smithfield to make a specific commitment to phase out this extreme confinement.
Many of you were upset by the
news and wrote in with your comments: Smithfield
It's painful looking at the pigs in their gestation crates, with blood on the cement before their eyes. Without using words the way we do, they're communicating their pain and agony. On the opposite end of the spectrum, I walk into my barn and wrap my arms around Howard, my 500-pound pink pig, sharing with him what the McDonald's pigs will never have. If a picture is worth a thousand words, how else may I convey pigs feel like we do? —Deborah Gilson
