I'm working on becoming a vegetarian (not now but in a while). I have cut out fish, pork, and meat and am only eating chicken. I'm sure that if I read about the cruel methods used on all these animals, then I'd have a better chance of becoming a real vegetarian. Are there any informative sites on animal cruelty that I should know about?
I hate to tell you, but chickens are by far the worst treated animals on the planet, and factory farming conditions are atrocious. Chickens are stacked in cages 10 cages high-think about whats happening to the chicken on the bottom cage with the runoff of feces and urine from the upper cages-those chickens are so diseased at slaughter that the meat ends up in canned goods because its not fit to sell as fresh chicken. Go to http://factoryfarming.org or http://meetyourmeat.com for more info. It should help you make the transition. Worked for me!
