I know these things because I am an Animal Science major and learn about these topics every day. How do you know these things? Have you done the same?

Kelsie, we're not gonna listen to your spins and
sugar-coating of the issue and/or walk lock-step to
the status quo of the Dark Ages.
I foresee your future generations, as vegans and vegetarians,
rejecting your meat-and-potatoes traditions and going against
the status quo of the Old West and the meat industry
will be extinct....

The original post stated, "Most recently undercover video footage exposed workers kicking and punching pigs at a Tyson supplier's facility, in contrast to Tyson's claims to be a leader in animal well-being." In my comment I was saying that not all Tyson's workers did that. I was defending Tyson, not saying that they all mistreat their animals. So, Anna, that answers your question. Nancy, I don't understand what you're implying. Linda, I was just giving you facts to back up my information other than my "opinion" on the issue.

And I'm sorry but it is a little hard to believe "facts" that are coming from "reality experts."

There is no such a thing as humanly raised and slaughtered. It is an oxymoron. It is all lie, that people like to belive because it makes them feel better about their choices and ultimately about themselves. Lie as a lie, even if everybody believes in it and the truth is truth even if no one chooses to believe it. Tyson Food might be worse or better than other torture houses for animals, but essentially they are all the same. The truth is that the Human kind needs to abolish all the animal...

Tyson Food might be worse or better than other torture houses for animals, but essentially they are all the same. The truth is that the Human kind needs to abolish all the animal slavery and embrace a vegan lifestyle. There is no other way to live as a decent being. As the famous and so profoundly intelligent writer M. Kundera once said: Humanity’s true moral test, its fundamental test…consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect humankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it.
—Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, 1984.

Ahhh, Tyson Farms, yes. The wonderful people who were filmed literally stomping chickens to death by employees in Texas. Ah yes, leader indeed!

I suggest people do some actual research on animal behavior, welfare, and husbandry. If you are eating chicken that claims to be "cage-free," guess what...ALL broiler chickens in this country are raised sans cage. Egg-laying hens can be raised "free-range" or in cages. Unless Tyson is beating their chickens, nothing that they are doing is wrong. They do extensive research on animal welfare and hire experts to decide each decision they make. Everything is strictly based on ACTUAL FACT rather...

I work at a Tyson's plant. There are USDA workers everywhere. If one of them or a member of management catches someone mistreating a chicken and if it is serious enough the employee is fired on the spot. Tyson chickens are fed mainly corn bought from area farmers.

When done properly, the raising and slaughtering of livestock animals is done humanely, without any pain, and with as little stress to the animal as possible. This is thanks to modern agricultural practices.

If you drive a car or ride a bike, the tires are very likely made with animal-based stearic acid. If you use shampoo or conditioner, they are typically made with more than a dozen animal-based components. Brush your teeth? Glycerin is made from animal and vegetable fats. As you can...

As you can see, animals are a necessity to society, and it's the agriculturalist's job to see that they are all treated with utmost dignity and respect. I personally believe that someone with a Ph.D. in Animal Behavior will know much more about "animal emotion" than a typical animal rights activist.

And to everyone who stoops low enough to personally attack someone who disagrees with you - unfortunately your argument is invalid. A true argument does not involve the personal degradation of either party.

I like your post, J...it seems this happens alot. If you don't agree with some people's opinions, way of life, idealologies...they make you out to be a unenlightened knuckle-dragging moron who needs to be led around by the nose. You don't want to eat meat? Fine, don't eat it...but I eat meat and I like it and that is nothing to you. I don't believe that animals have souls although I know they feel pain...and if someone is caught mistreating animals they should be proscecuted to the full extent of the law.

Ya, homo sapiens, keep being naive and staying ignorant, keep lying to yourselves and to your kids to make you feel better, keep destroying this planet and massacring all living beings (included farm animals that are born to suffer and die in hell) ... this world has no chance at all anyhow. The only decent way of existence is to live a vegan lifestyle. End of a story. Get educated and open your eyes and think for yourselves. I as all other vegans live completely without dependence on any animal products and we do use a toothpaste. Common. This is where to start: http://www.pcrm.org/ and watch documentary called 'Earthlings' to understand the horrors of this planet. Enough is enough. And please stop trying to justify the human greed and selfishness. It is insulting and only people that you will appeal to are ignorant and self gratifying. No thinking individual will take such ideas seriously.

We went to a Tyson factory and it was the grossest experience I have ever had. the chicken blood was everywhere, the bathrooms were off complete filth,
no soap to be had, dirty toilet paper in the garbage.
if I had had a camera that day I would have definitely taken under cover film. All I can say is Dateline.

You know, I couldn't care less how my FOOD is raised. It's a chicken! If I go out hunting and shoot a turkey, would you also consider that mistreating an animal? What's the difference? You cook it and eat it and it all tastes good. Can you honestly tell me that any of you chicken hugers can taste the difference between a mistreated chicken and a lovingly nutureed chicken?
