Slate.com: Which Cruelties Can Farmers Get Away With?

May 27, 2010

This week’s Conklin dairy cruelty video has prompted the writing of a superb “Explainer” article at Slate.com. The piece tackles the question of just how much animal cruelty a farmer can dish out without fear of prosecution.

The article serves as a nice introduction to the cruelties that exist within factory farming. And it’s required reading for any omnivore who assumes that sufficient regulations and enforcement are already in place. Link.
