Square Peg: Farm Animals Being Trucked in Winter

|Debbie Wall - Square Peg: Farm Animals Being Trucked in Winter|
All this cold weather reporting from every conceivable angle, yet not one drop of ink for the plight of farmed animals being trucked down our highways in trailers that are unheated and often open sided.
Canada has some of the weakest animal protection laws in the Western world and those pertaining to their transportation are no exception. Over 750 million land animals are raised for food in this country every year and all must endure being transported to their deaths. Depending on species, that potentially means 36 to 52 continuous hours with no food, water or rest.
According to the government's own statistics, hundreds of thousands of them die en route. At this time of year, hundreds of thousands more will arrive severely frost-bitten or frozen to the sides of trailers. Imagine the marked increase in coverage . . . and outrage . . . this would get if the story involved one dog freezing to death in the back of a pick-up truck.

Debbie Wall champions those who can not speak for themselves. She discusses and points out the obvious that rolls down the highways of Canada, The United States and Mexico! No one likes to be cruel to animals. But our plates and our palates demand factory farms for meat.
