Counting Animals on the Abuse of Chickens
Some people don't understand why Vegan Outreach focuses so much on chickens, why we refuse to use any health or environmental argument that could lead some people to eat more chickens.
The sheer numbers don't capture the horrors of the modern chicken industry, however.
In an attempt to capture the reality of modern agribusiness' treatment of birds, our good friend Harish has a powerful post up at Counting Animals: A child raised to weigh 500 pounds by age 10?
Be sure to pass this post along to anyone who thinks today's chickens are "natural" (or anyone who thinks a certain form of genetic modification is "bad," but "traditional" modification is fine).
