For the second time this week, HSUS chief Wayne Pacelle has a must-read blog piece on farmed animals. This time he takes on pork industry subsidies. This article is only kept from being perfect by Pacelle’s failure to describe the pork industry as a bunch of thieving cocksuckers, but he very much makes the point using gentler terms.
In the past week we’ve seen Pacelle take on agribusiness antibiotics, we’ve seen Mercy For Animals publicize chick grinding, and now Pacelle’s exposing pork industry subsidies. I feel like the talking points I’ve laid out in Meat Market are becoming front-and-center in the animal protection movement’s campaigns. (Via Shapiro.) Link.
