Agro-business marketing experts have done an excellent job of convincing consumers that their organic, “free-range”, “cage-free” meat comes from animals who were loved, coddled, or at least treated with common decency during their brief lives (a very deceptive & inaccurate advertising ploy). They never focus on the killing, however, because slaughter is inherently violent and our USDA-approved methods are riddled with flaws and mistakes that inflict excruciating and unnecessary pain every day.
Whether you’re eating a KFC sandwich or an organic, “free-range” turkey wrap from Whole Foods…you’ll never know if you’re eating the body parts of a bird that endured this excruciatingly painful death.
