Superb article by Nicholas Kristof calling for an end to battery cages. No point in excerpting anything since it’s all essential reading. If I was forbidden to make the case for going egg-free, I couldn’t possibly write anything better on the topic than this piece.
Animal advocates need to keep pushing hard against the egg industry’s emerging weaknesses, and publicize articles like this at every turn. We’re at a moment when the battery egg industry has never been so vulnerable. If we keep up the pressure, we may see a turn of events that will doom the entire battery egg industry in the near future. (Thanks, Paul & Richard.) Link.
