Awful, absolutely awful.
My own country is one of the biggest 'bio-industries' in the world, the abuse of millions of pigs, cows, chickens, it's just unspeakable.
And nearly everyone just turns a blind eye to it, which is even more horrible. As long as the $$$$ come in, who cares, eh?
I've become a part-time vegetarian because of it (meat only on the plate 2-3 days a week) - and when I buy meat, I do so at a so-called 'green' butcher, where I hope the animal at least has been allowed to have a decent life before getting slaughtered.
I've forgotten who was this great guy who once said that you can judge a community's level of civilization on the way they treat their animals - Ghandi?
