ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the ruthlessness of the people of the U.S. to animals and the ill-treatment meted out to them. Cattles, like horses, are repeatedly slugged with iron rnallets. Calves, hogs and lambs are strung up by chains tied to their hind legs. When the chains slip, or legs are disjointed and broken, they crash from high conveyor lines to the slaughter house floors with their throats severed. More humane practices like hogs may be anesthetized by carbon dioxide gas or cattle could be stunned painlessly and with certainty by captive bolt could be used in the interest of the animals.
