You can help expose and confront the hidden cruelty of factory farming

Help end cruel experiments on animals

You can help expose—and confront—the hidden cruelty of factory farming. Donate Today

It's no surprise that the global swine flu crisis came from pigs, as pigs these days are raised on factory farms. For years, PETA's investigators have been uncovering the disease-ridden conditions on factory farms. We've exposed stressed animals crammed by the thousands into filthy sheds, a perfect breeding ground for new strains of dangerous bacteria and viruses. Factory farms are not just a major public health threat—they are also the single greatest source of animal suffering in the world. Thanks to the brave work of PETA's undercover investigators, more people than ever are saying "No!" to the inherent cruelty of factory farming.

But PETA is only able to conduct these investigations because of caring people like you who help fund this vital work. Today, I hope that you will help provide the resources that we need to sustain our investigations. PETA's staff members take huge risks to get inside these filthy and often dangerous places, and they leave with irrefutable evidence of animal abuse. Our investigators have been threatened, chased, and even assaulted. As hard as the physical and emotional toll is on them, they know it's nothing compared to what animals endure. Make no mistake: Once we go public with a PETA undercover investigation, we get results, as we did in the following cases:

At Aviagen factory farms in West Virginia, PETA investigators uncovered workers stomping, kicking, and killing turkeys in unimaginably cruel ways. In a precedent-setting move, a grand jury has since issued 19 indictments—11 of them on felony charges—against three former employees of Aviagen Turkeys for cruelty to animals. This marks the first time in U.S. history that factory-farm employees have faced felony cruelty-to-animals charges for abusing birds, and the indictments come as a direct result of our investigation. At a pig factory farm that supplies piglets who are raised and killed for Hormel products, our investigator witnessed a supervisor shoving a cane into a sow's vagina, multiple pigs who were beaten with metal gate rods, and many other abuses. As a result of our investigation, an Iowa sheriff filed 22 charges of livestock neglect and abuse against six former employees of the factory farm. One of Hormel's own executives has referred to PETA's investigation as "an industry-changing event."

At AgriProcessors, the world's largest kosher slaughterhouse, a PETA investigation documented workers sawing gaping cuts in the necks of living, breathing cows. As a result of the cruelty we exposed at the Postville, Iowa, slaughterhouse, AgriProcessors was caught violating the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act and has since been forced into bankruptcy. By exposing these hideous acts, we are changing consumer behavior, rewriting corporate policies, receiving justice from the courts, and reducing the suffering in countless animals' lives. Undercover investigations are one of the cornerstones of PETA's work to protect animals—they are a proven and powerful tool in reducing suffering. And no one else can do them as well as PETA can. But please remember that our investigators can't work without your support. Your generous gift to PETA today can help us stop animal suffering on factory farms and in slaughterhouses around the world.

Thank you for answering the call of animals.

Many of the precedent-setting victories that PETA has won in our factory-farming campaigns—including reforms from industry giants like Safeway and Smithfield Foods—began with our investigative team's work to uncover the misery hidden behind the doors of factory farms and slaughterhouses. With your support, we can fundamentally change how both companies and consumers treat animals.

Four hundred and forty chimpanzees from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) are being slaughtered each year for bushmeat, estimates Dr. Cleve Hicks, at the University of Amsterdam. "I was actually astonished to see the sheer quantities of bushmeat being taken out of the forest," says Hicks. "It was really shocking."

The fact that they are some of the most mysterious apes on the planet, that kill lions, catch fish and supposedly howl at the moon, according to local legend, has not stopped the destruction of these chimps. According to an 18-month study of remote human settlements deep in the Congolese jungle, chimpanzees are being subjected to a "wave of killing" by bushmeat hunters.

In order to document the threat posed by bushmeat traders, Hicks and his colleagues conducted regular surveys of bushmeat markets in local towns and on roads on either side of the Ueke River in southern DRC. Altogether, they spent 1,365 days in 10 cities and towns and surveyed 13,140 kilometers of road. They recorded chimp carcasses and orphans for sale.
The team saw 44 orphan chimps and 35 carcasses, plus nine leopard skins, 10 okapi skins, parts of 14 elephants, bushmeat from 2 hippos, 169 monkey carcasses and 69 money orphans.

Apparently many people in the DRC do not know that is illegal to hunt chimpanzees. Alice Macharis of the Jane Goodall Institute said: "The increasing level of the bushmeat trade in this region is truly alarming. In the DRC, which has the largest population of chimpanzees in the wild, the bushmeat trade, the illegal commercial hunting of chimpanzees, remains one of the greatest threats to their survival along with loss of habitat due to deforestation."

In July, I reported that more than five tons of illegal bushmeat from Africa is smuggled every week in personal luggage through Paris's Charles de Gaulle airport. A team of experts from France, Cambodia, and the U.K., who completed a study based on searches carried out over 17 days at the airport, said it was "the first systematic study of the scale and nature of this international trade." Their research was published Friday, June 18, in the journal Conservation Letters.

And now we have more evidence of this tragic pursuit. Let's put an end to the horrific practice of bushmeat.

May I count on you for one more gift this holiday season to help us build our momentum for a more compassionate world for farmed animals? Every new donor who gives $25 or more will receive PETA's 2010 "Rescued" calendar featuring animals PETA has helped save from abuse and neglect. Your support of PETA this year helped us chip away at some of the worst forms of factory-farm cruelty and win landmark cruelty-to-animals convictions—these victories are reducing the suffering of millions of individual animals right now. Thanks to friends like you, we helped win the first-ever convictions for cruelty to factory-farmed pigs in Iowa, the nation's top pig-raising state, and the first-ever felony convictions of factory-farm employees for cruelty to birds. Our undercover investigation of a major dairy factory farm in Pennsylvania also exposed the cruelty that goes into every glass of milk and led to cruelty charges against that farm's owners. With your continued support, PETA will save lives by putting more pressure on companies such as McDonald's and KFC to join the list of industry leaders—such as Burger King, Wendy's, and Safeway—that we have convinced to adopt animal welfare reforms. Bringing about changes like these takes an enormous amount of work and determination, but it reduces the suffering of countless cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, and other animals.

With your loyal support in 2010, PETA will do even more to expose and stop the abuse of animals who are confined to cramped cages and severely crowded warehouses on factory farms. I hope that in addition to your generous gift, you will help us spare turkeys from the annual holiday slaughter. This year, you can give turkeys something to be thankful for by taking PETA's pledge to go vegan and leaving them off your plate. There are so many delicious alternatives to turkey that don't involve a heaping portion of cruelty. By switching to a compassionate diet, you can help us save animals like Claude, one of six chickens PETA Asia rescued from a live market in Manila. Claude became the star of a powerful ad featuring Filipino signing sensation Yasmien Kurdi. In the ad, a photo of Kurdi and Claude crouching in a cage appears beneath the tagline "Try to Relate to Who Is on Your Plate." Claude and his friends now live in a sanctuary in Palawan, Philippines. At the sanctuary, they are free to roam with rescued chickens and other animals. Like all chickens, they are full of curiosity and enjoy grooming themselves, taking dust baths, and lounging in the sunshine.

Those are some of the basic pleasures that every animal needs and deserves, but animals trapped on factory farms never get to experience them. By making a special holiday donation to PETA right now, you can help us fight hard in the coming year to change this cruel industry and win the reforms that will bring some relief to millions of individual farmed animals who know only loneliness, fear, and pain. Thank you for never forgetting these animals who desperately need your help. And happy holidays.

Last night, Lady Gaga tried once again to shock the world, this time by wearing a "meat dress" during her acceptance of the Video of the Year award at MTV's Video Music Awards. Lately, Lady Gaga has been having a hard time keeping her act "over the top." Wearing a dress made out of cuts of dead cows is offensive enough to bring comment, but someone should whisper in her ear that there are more people who are upset by butchery than who are impressed by it—and that means a lot of young people will not be buying her records if she keeps this stuff up. On the other hand, maybe it was fake and she'll talk about that later. If not, what's next: the family cat made into a hat? Meat is the decomposing flesh of a tormented animal who didn't want to die, and after a few hours under the TV lights, it would smell like the rotting flesh it is and likely be crawling in maggots—not too attractive, really. The stunt is bringing lots of people to PETA.org to download a copy of our vegetarian/vegan starter kit, so I guess we should be glad.

A wonderful side note to mention, Ellen DeGeneres (who is vegan herself), presented Gaga with a veggie bikini and suggested she try that next time she wants to make a statement. Thanks, Ellen!

EARTHLINGS

FULL-LENGTH VERSIONS, WITH & WITHOUT CAPTIONS, CAPTIONS BELOW


From EARTHLINGS … EARTHLINGS is an award-winning documentary film about the suffering of animals for food, fashion, pets, entertainment and medical research. Considered the most persuasive documentary ever made, EARTHLINGS is nicknamed “the Vegan maker” for its sensitive footage shot at animal shelters, pet stores, puppy mills, factory farms, slaughterhouses, the leather and fur trades, sporting events, circuses and research labs. The film is narrated by Academy Award® nominee Joaquin Phoenix and features music by platinum-selling recording artist Moby. Initially ignored by distributors, today EARTHLINGS is considered the definitive animal rights film by organizations around the world. “Of all the films I have ever made, this is the one that gets people talking the most,” said Phoenix. “For every one person who sees EARTHLINGS, they will tell three.”

Considered the most persuasive documentary ever made, EARTHLINGS is nicknamed “the Vegan maker” for its sensitive footage shot at animal shelters, pet stores, puppy mills, factory farms, slaughterhouses, the leather and fur trades, sporting events, circuses and research labs.

In 1999, writer/producer/director Shaun Monson began work on a series of PSAs about spaying and neutering pets. The footage he shot at animal shelters around Los Angeles affected him so profoundly that the project soon evolved into EARTHLINGS. The film would take another six years to complete because of the difficulty in obtaining footage within these profitable industries. Though the film was initially ignored by distributors, who told Monson that the film would “never see the light of day and should be swept under the rug,” today EARTHLINGS is considered the definitive animal rights film by organizations around the world.

Nation Earth was established to produce documentary films on socially urgent issues. EARTHLINGS, released in 2005, was the company’s first feature film and is the first of a documentary trilogy. The company is currently at work on the second installment, UNITY, which will explore the unifying force of consciousness found in nature, animals and humankind. UNITY is scheduled to be completed in 2010.

Ride to the Light: 3 Sanctuary Century Fundraising Bike Ride
Our second annual one-hundred mile fundraising bike ride is right around the corner. Yep, we had so much fun last year that we're doing again this year and we need you to make it a success.
The Ride to the Light is a bike ride to benefit Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary, Out To Pasture Sanctuary and IDA's own Hope Animal Sanctuary.
Come along for the ride or make a donation and help us reach (or even better, exceed) our goal of $15,000 for these three very worthy causes.

This one-hundred mile (century) bike ride is Saturday, Sept. 25, 2010. We'll be leaving from the Vegan Mini-mall and riding to Out To Pasture in Estacada, then on to Lighthouse in Scio. Project Hope is in Mississippi, so we won't be making a stop there, but they'll be with us in spirit.
Can't ride a hundred miles? No problem. New for this year's ride we're adding a shorter 40-mile route that ends at Out to Pasture in Estacada. Now you have no excuses not to do this ride!
Our fundraising site makes an easy job of raising the $120 minimum pledge to join the ride. All you have to do is circulate this site to friends and family via Facebook and email, and ask for them to contribute to these worthy sanctuaries. On the site they can post a message of support and let everyone know they are giving a donation in your name.
We're also working on awesome vegan prizes for the folks who raise the most money beyond the $120 entry fee.
Please e-mail Eric eric[at]idausa[dot]org or Matt matt[at]idausa[dot]org or call 503-249-9996 for more information. Please also visit our donation page and consider making a donation to help support our ride.

Stop Application to Build the Largest Dairy Factory Farm in the UK

Nocton Dairies Ltd has resubmitted its application to build a huge industrial factory farm. Despite a reduction in the number of cows from the 8,100 indicated in the original proposal, this facility would still be the largest dairy farm that the UK has ever seen, and if built, it would condemn 3,770 cows to a life of misery and suffering. Please help by urging North Kesteven District Council to reject the application.
If this mega-dairy is approved, it will set a precedent for more of these animal prisons to appear across the country. We have to act fast! The council's official public consultation on the proposal is happening over the Christmas period, so please ask everyone you know to voice their objections as soon as possible!
According to Nocton Dairies' plan, the cows on this factory farm would spend their lives in cramped and filthy conditions and be kept entirely indoors for potentially months at a time. They would be deprived of everything that is natural and important to them, including the right to socialise and raise their young.
Cows on dairy factory farms are forced to produce unnaturally high yields of milk, and many are killed before they reach the age of 5 as a result of physical exhaustion. Nocton plans to milk the cows three times a day, as opposed to the normal two, thus increasing the suffering of the cows and exhausting them even faster. Cows naturally live for 20 years or more, but on factory farms, most are slaughtered between the ages of 4 and 7. Cows are repeatedly impregnated only to have their calves torn away from them within a couple days of birth. Female calves enter the same hellish existence as their mothers, and male calves, who are seen as a byproduct of the dairy industry, are either shot at birth or sold to the meat industry.
Please send a polite letter to the members of the North Kesteven District Council voicing your objection to this application and urging them to reject the proposal. The closing date for objections is 11 January 2011. Objections submitted to previous applications by Nocton do not count, so please object now even if you have already done so in the past!

Animals Are Not Ours to Eat
Hell on Earth –
the modern factory farm From the meat industry's rampant abuse of animals and the environmental devastation it causes to the tremendous health benefits of a vegan diet and helping end world hunger, there are countless reasons why more and more people are leaving meat off their plates for good and embracing a healthy and humane vegan diet.

The green pastures and idyllic barnyard scenes of years past are now distant memories. On today's factory farms, animals are crammed by the thousands into filthy windowless sheds, wire cages, farrowing crates and other confinement systems. These animals will never raise their families, root in the soil, build nests or do anything that is natural and important to them. They won't even feel the warmth of the sun on their backs or breathe fresh air until the day they are loaded onto trucks bound for slaughter.

Animals on factory farms have no real legal protection from cruelties including mutilations, selective breeding which can cause chronic pain and cripple them, transport through all weather extremes and gruesome and violent slaughter. Even before they reach the abattoir, animals on UK factory farms die by the tens of thousands every day of neglect, disease and even thirst and hunger.

Yet the farmed animals who are not protected from cruelty are no less intelligent or capable of feeling pain than are the dogs and cats we cherish as our companions. They are inquisitive, interesting individuals who value their lives, solve problems and experience fear and pain. According to animal-behaviour scientists, chickens begin learning from their mothers while they are still in their shells, pigs can play video games better than some primates can and fish form social bonds and can remember things that they have learned for the human equivalent of 40 years.

There are far better alternatives to eating animals. Vegan foods provide us with all the nutrients that we need, minus the saturated fat, cholesterol and contaminants that are found in meat, eggs and milk. They're also tasty, exciting and different.

Plant-based diets help protect against heart disease, diabetes, obesity, strokes and cancer. Vegetarian also have stronger immune systems, live on average 10 years longer than meat-eaters and are one-third as likely to be overweight.

Not only is raising animals for food cruel and unhealthy, it is also extremely inefficient – for every kilo of food that animals eat, only a fraction of the calories are returned in the form of edible flesh. If we stopped intensively breeding farmed animals and grew crops to feed humans instead, we would easily be able to feed every human on the planet with healthy and affordable vegan foods.

Growing feed for animals instead of food for people also means a constant appetite for land, leading to the destruction of rainforests while livestock farming itself is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, soil erosion, water pollution and a host of other environmental problems.

Our appetite for meat, dairy and eggs is ruining our planet and our health. It also comes at a cost of billions of innocent lives and unimaginable suffering. There is a better, saner, more compassionate way. Animals are not ours to eat. Pledge to go vegan today.

The Ottawa Animal Rights Defence League has asked the Humane Society to consider an animal-free meal at its $300 per plate dinner. Last year the group protested outside of the Fur Ball when the Humane Society refused to consider their request and served meat at their dinner.

The Humane Society has given the group the same reply as last year, but a spokesperson for the Defence League has yet to say if the group will protest again this year when the Humane Society (presumably) serves meat again at the event on March 26th.

The Humane Society's reply to the Defence League states that the Humane Society is an animal welfare organization, not an animal rights organization and that it sees no ethical conflict with the raising of animals for food, only with the way that they are treated prior to and during slaughter.

They also stated in their letter that they offer a vegetarian option for the meal, but less than five percent of those who attend the event opt for it.

This means that over 95% of people who support the Ottawa Humane Society enough to pay $300 to attend one of their fundraisers see no problem with killing and eating animals.

Last year's Fur Ball raised $175,000.

The Defence League was instrumental in having foie gras removed from the Winterlude kickoff dinner. If the Humane Society's history and statements are an accurate indicator, it believes that it already has the moral high ground and will almost certainly refuse to change their menu regardless of any pressure they receive from outside groups.

It is almost impossible for the two sides of the animal welfare/animal rights debate to see eye to eye on issues like this because the goals of the two movements are mutually exclusive.

The animal welfare movement is based on the premise not only that animal consumption will always continue, but that it should always continue. It seems that while the Humane Society fights for humane treatment of animals, it refuses to acknowledge that not killing an animal at all is a humane treatment in and of itself.

The fundamental problem with the animal welfare movement is the idea that some ways of torturing and killing animals are acceptable and others are not, and no one can seem to decide where that line should be drawn or by what standards it should be judged.

The only ideologically consistent way to advocate for animals is to refuse to support any form of animal torture, exploitation, or murder. You can't change the way we treat animals while you eat them, pay to see them imprisoned in zoos, and support frivolous testing on them.
