Animal Rights Blog

Don't breed or buy while homeless die--always adopt! U 2 could adopt & save the lives of sweet & adorable pets just like I did---just go to Petfinder.com!

I am a vegan & my cat (Sassy) & my 4 Long-haired Chihuahua Mixes (Fancy, Buffy, Bubby & Ivory) eat Natural Balance pet food. (Natural Balance has no animal by-products, ash, or meat meal). Go go dogfoodadvisor.com to check out quality pet food brands in order to avoid brands, which use meat not suitable for human consumption, and possibly even contain euthanized shelter pets (yes that happens!) (more info about that in this post: adoptpets.tumblr.com/post/72699087123/hello-i-read-that-post-you-reblogged-about-what-people).

Go to theanimalrescuesite.com once every day to feed shelter animals for free!!!!

Fuck fur, meat, diary, factory farms, hunting, puppy mills, pet breeding, animal experiments, animal testing, & circuses! Animal rights bitches fuck yeah!

AMAZING shot of last night’s “blood moon” from Edgar’s Mission in Australia!
The sun, moon and earth came together in perfect alignment, causing the earth’s shadow to fall on the moon. The people & animals at Edgar’s Mission, waited, waited and waited and finally Hansel and Polly got to bask in all the eclipse’s glory!

JUST RELEASED UNDERCOVER INVESTIGATION:
Mercy For Animals investigator documented workers at a Maple Leaf chicken hatchery throwing baby chicks by their fragile wings, slamming them into metal dividers, sending them through an industrial washing machine to be scalded and drowned, and violently cramming them into macerators to be ground up alive.

This is just a small display of the systematic cruelties in animal agribusiness. Please consider helping these defenseless birds by taking them off your plate.

(Diff anon) but why don't vegans not eat eggs. Cause chickens don't die from having eggs.. Or milk.

They do die.

Male chicks are ground up alive on day one because they are useless to the industry.

Those who aren’t, are gassed to death or suffocated under piles of other chicks in plastic bags.

200 million male chicks are grounded up alive or suffocated in plastic bags, not for meat, but for EGGS.  And yes, this happens to free-range hens too. In fact I still have an email where a famous free-range farm in this country - England - (you’ve seen them on tv, the Happy Eggs company), admit that they kill their useless male chicks too, by gassing them to death, where it can take over ten minutes to die.  Not only are eggs unnecessary and full of cholestrol, but consuming them means you are directly responsible for these animals being shredded alive on their first day on earth. Now you know, what will YOU do?

image

All farms kill the males that they don’t use for stud because it is not financially viable to keep them alive when they are no use to the industry. They do not lay eggs, nor are they ‘fatty’ enough to be raised as meat. So they’re killed. They can’t even just be rehomed because nobody wants loud, noisy roosters who ‘give nothing back’ to their owners in the way of eggs.

Once a hen has finished her laying cycle, she too is killed. And again, all egg industries do this. I even got proof from the UK’s most popular and ‘famous’ egg company.

Male calves and surplus females are also killed. Males serve no purpose, so they are raised as veal, if not just killed outright.

Cows, like every other female animal, need to be pregnant and then give birth in order to lactate (produce milk). So she carries her baby around for 9 months, and then he is removed from her shortly after birth so he doesn’t drink all the profits. If he’s a boy, he’s disposed of in the methods mentioned above. If she’s a girl, she’ll be raised as a reproductive prisoner like her mother was, until she can no longer have babies and produce enough milk, so she is killed for cheap meat.

Within 24 hours of birth, her baby will be removed from her. Cows become so distressed that they will try and escape their paddocks to find their babies, and even disturb nearby residents with their heartbroken cries of grief. If the baby is a male, he might rarely be kept as a breeding stud, but otherwise he will be killed straight away, or raised for veal. In places like Europe, calves aren’t allowed to be put into those little sheds that you see in America and places. However their existence is little better, as they are instead all put into a pen and they are still killed as babies.

Dairy cows are on average, killed at age 4. Many are disabled and badly suffering before death. Downers are so common - I even saw downers on Open Days at colleges I visited. Downers are cows who cannot get up, are very lame and end up hopping or dragging themselves around. Their udders - swollen and genetically modified to hold x10 the amount of milk they should - certainly don’t help matters. Cows that can’t walk or are downers can’t legally be entered in the food chain, but they still are. Animals who can’t walk to their deaths are dragged, literally. 

image

Downed cows are often ‘encouraged’ to move by slapping, kicking, jumping on them, pulled round the neck with a rope and dragged, stabbed or shunted by fork trucks, etc. There is a HUGE difference might I add between someone shoving/pushing/urging a cow to stand, and someone literally dragging her by the neck or stomping on her.

Learn more about the dairy industry and the treatment of its animals here.

The dairy and egg industries ARE the meat industries.

& if you do not wish to give up meat/dairy/eggs completely, please try to support small/local farming instead of abusive factory farming. You don’t have to be a vegan, just be a conscious consumer and a human with a heart.

  • This still happens in ‘small local’ farms. And your RSPCA-approved farms too.
  • They don’t have magical cows and chickens who are all born female and ready to lay eggs/make milk… calves must still be seperated, males must still be seperated and killed (it is NOT financially viable to keep them alive because nobody wants a scrawny rooster screaming and making a mess and not giving anything back in terms of eggs or meat). They seldom make it to a sanctuary.
  • The males are still killed along with infertile or surplus females. 
  • They are still castrated, tail docked, teeth clipped, ear tagged/notched, debeaked, you name it - almost always without anaesthesia, especially when done as newborns or very small babies.
  • When they no longer produce enough milk/eggs to make a profit, they are still killed.

I know you care, I can tell by the way you are writing. Please consider learning more about the industries, myself and many others would love to help you. But please understand that by promoting ‘happy exploitation’, such as local small ‘happy’ farms, it is still promoting their suffering and death.

Thank you.

When factories that sell chicks sex them, they are usually squeezed so that the penis pops out. This can cause internal damage to organs. It's painful and sometimes deadly... Even to the females who are "wanted". There isn't much about industry farming that is kind. It's 100% exploit. If people insist to continue consuming eggs, I would suggest raising them yourself from abandoned hens you've rescued and cared for (But omitting them would be ideal).

Fucking hell I’ve not heard of that one! As someone who has had to handle dead chicks for feeding, I can confirm that their soft precious bodies are really, really easily broken and damaged. If you hold them too hard while trying to prepare them, they explode. I have had a dead chick explode in my hand and it was horrific. This is why I always say you need a strong stomach if you want to work with wildlife. 

But yeah, this is why I feel particularly upset when I see chicks just carelessly thrown around, stamped on, etc. Because they are so fragile, tiny… people are sick.

My dad is a diver, he used to dive with seals and he said that they would just play around you and basically they were just mermaid dogs 

ITS SMILING

The fact that we kill some baby seals for their fur makes me sick!

Urgh. :c No words can express my disgust.

Sickening, truly.

Nobody is BORN wanting to hurt animals. It’s a behavior that’s taught to you by your parents and your culture. You can unlearn cruelty. It doesn’t have to be this way.
