(00:00) The fight for ethical treatment of all animals, food quality, family farms and ranches, and rural economies is being fought by the Humane Society of the United States. Hear the amazing story have how this 60 year-old organization is energized to save an important part of American food, economy, and life. Big Agriculture, industrial meat factories, and their power in government is allowing inhumane wholesale mistreatment and slaughter of animals. The mistreatment arises with chemicals, hormones, antibiotics, and living conditions that defy description. We eat what is injected in the animals. There is a choice. We can return to rural American sustainable economies where animals are valued as blessings, considered a source of livelihood, and treated with care and compassion. Unfortunately, Big Agriculture doesn’t share those values and uses their influence on our government to diminish them. The Humane Society of the United States realizes the cruelty enforced by industrial meat factories is destroying us all.
