And I Cried

About the ill treatment of cows. Their terrible living conditions. Their being killed to fill the meat sections of super markets, McDonald's, Burger King and other fast food eating places.

A Prison Camp for Animals

On a recent journey to Portland, Oregon with my nephew, Jesse, I glanced to the side of the road and wondered what the blackened area covered with moving shapes was. I then saw that they were cows herded together on black cinders, so many penned in that they could barely turn around and definitely not lie down.

Many acres were covered by these poor animals who listlessly wandered around. Thin-shanked they were and hardly able to lift their heads. There was no green around so nothing for them to eat.

and I cried.

I asked Jesse what this prison camp for animals was and he told me it was where companies who use poor quality meat to put between bread buns across the nation buy their meat from. The cows are slaughtered to feed the hungry millions who stuff their unhealthy and/or overweight bodies with Big Macs… and other fast food chemicalized offerings. Less than healthy cows serve the purpose and these poor animals are the fodder for those cravings.

However, this is not to proclaim against such companies - that time has and will come again, it is to bring to the notice of right-minded, caring people that animals are being treated in such a horribly barbarous way.

If you have any way of contacting animal rights people in your state, please do this and quickly for if you had seen what I saw, you too would cry.

Feedlots, and Factory farms do not just sell to Fast food chains, they sell to slaughter houses too. Eat less meat, or only buy from farmers markets to be sure its not from cruelty!

This is really sad. Animals must be treated properly too. I am not a fastfood lover and I shall continue disliking fastfood meals, eat my favorites veggies instead and homemades...
