I don’t give a fuck who you are. If you mistreat an animal, I hope someone calls the police on you. Punishment is too light for mistreating an animal. If someone beat up a person as badly as some people beat up their pets, they’d definitely get a long jail sentence. But that’s not how it works…
Every year, the global leather industry slaughters more than a billion animals and tans their skins and hides. Many of these animals suffer all the horrors of factory farming - including extreme crowding and confinement, deprivation, and unanesthetized castration, branding, tail-docking, and dehorning - as well as cruel treatment during transport and slaughter.
Around 95% of the eggs available come from egg factories, where the birds are held in battery cages -very small with slanted wire floors. Five to eight birds are crammed in 14 square inches cages. To prevent agression (due to the stress) chicks are debeaked. To lift the production up the hens live in constant light.
