    Chicks in a grinder

    Grisly video shows chicks entering grinder | GazetteOnline.com

    There is a link to the video in the article, I watched it and didn't really see alot that made me upset. Though I can see how the PETA types would find it appalling. That said I don't see the video changing the practices.

    It was pretty brutal, but I don't see how you could change it and still keep prices and whatnot in check. They need to process a **** load of chicks.

    I dont see it changing anything what are we suppose to do give them a cigarette and a last meal? we raise them for food nothing different than any other animal we raise.


    Hooray for Metaphors!

    Re: Chicks in a grinder

    I had a professor at ISU say he supports PETA... Funny thing.. He had leather shoes on, a leather belt, and always wore wool sweaters..

    How does that work???

    I don't think PETA has much of a problem with wool, do they?

    Unless they are making love to the animal and raising a family with the animal, then they are against it.

    The purpose of these types of videos is to play on peoples emotions so they will send in $$$$$$$$$$$ -- It is all about these so called animal activists making money to pay their bills, mortgage, buy a foreign made car, etc. Just like the workers at the plant. By the way I love the smell of BBQed chicken.

    Well, I suppose a case could be made that the sheep exists to produce wool, and harvesting the wool can be done "ethically". And I'm sure the shoes and belt came from the hides of animals that died of natural causes after a much fulfilled and carefree life of roaming the prairie...

    I thought you meant "chicks", as in "women" at first and I was freaked out.

    But cows need to be milked and vegans can't eat/drink dairy.
    BTW, I know you aren't defending it, I'm just pointing this out.

    It is sick and all but they are chickens. They taste good and we need to kill alot of them. Its good to be on top of the food chain.
