    Voices Carry for Animals # 41

    in Current Events

    Hosted by Debbie Dahmer


    Guest will be : Mikael Nielsen  Serves as national volunteer coordinator for Mercy For Animals, recruiting and training activists throughout the United States.


     Mercy for Animals


    The Plight of Farmed Animals


    Over 95% of the cruelty to animals in the United States occurs at the hands of the meat, dairy, and egg industries which confine, mutilate, and slaughter over 9 billion land animals each year.


    Despite the fact that these are the most abused animals in the United States, they actually have the fewest number of advocates. That is why it is so important that we stand up and become a voice for the most defenseless.


    Published on Mar 14, 2015


    A new Mercy For Animals undercover investigation into a poultry supplier to Gordon Food Service—the largest private foodservice distributor in North America—has exposed horrific cruelty to animals, including baby birds violently slammed into metal shackles before being painfully shocked with electricity and having their throats cut open while still conscious and able to feel pain.
