The Humane Society's New Undercover Investigation

Posted January 31, 2008 by Marta Holmberg

The Humane Society of the United States just released a new investigation of a cattle slaughterhouse in California documenting sick and injured cows. This particular “supplier of the year” slaughterhouse actually supplies meat to the national school lunch program. That’s right, the same “food” that’s being served in school cafeterias across the country was once shocked with electric prods and beaten. Check out the video for yourself below.

It’s not just cows that are being horribly abused to become someone’s next meal either: PETA undercover investigations have shown horrific abuse of chickens, turkeys, and pigs (among other animals), too. The best way to stop this abuse is to go vegetarian. It’s so easy, seriously—just make a few different choices when it’s time to eat. Swap a flesh burger with a veggie burger at your next meal. It’s as simple as that, really.

I know you’ve gotta want more vegetarian options in your school cafeteria (because the food that was once a living, breathing, abused animal just isn’t cutting it, am I right?). Go here to see what you can do.

I hope you’re having a pleasant day, you pleasant people, you.

    OMG guess what guys? We asked the lunch lady to stop surveying meat and she said it’s law that we have to serve it! That’s right! Although I’m vegetarian in a private school, the meat is still on my plate, paid for with our tax money >=[

    Animals have feelings too. How would you like it if you were tortured, crammed, not able to turn around, and live a horrible life JUST so someone you don’t even know can eat you? I wouldnt want that. Go veg.

    -shakes head angerly-
    Kids at school had chicken nuggets (what an awful “food” name that is to type) and they gobbled it up. How awful that they don’t know the truth!
    I wish my friends supported me or I’d share this with them.
    One of them still thinks that they roam outside free eating grass, happyas can be, and the “owners” wait until the animals are old and shoots them for meat! She doesn’t believe anything I say!

    Ugh, I saw that yesterday on Fox… That is horrible. I really don’t understand how they can lack so much compassion… :(

    I'm a therian /otherkin wolf lycanthrope that sees this lifetime in this body as a punishment that the god and goddess has bestowed upon me, but I try my best to do good to all living beings except usually humans which I hate and detest with all my being.
