The Elevator From Hell
Posted July 24, 2012 by Rachelle Owen
Could you imagine living your life in a space so small that you could never spread your arms, lie down to sleep comfortably, or even turn around without knocking into someone? Every day is a living nightmare for birds in the egg industry—who endure this and worse.

As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
