Violence Outside–and Inside–Burger Barn
We’re relieved that a “chicken” who was shot at by passing motorists outside a Burger Barn in Wichita wasn’t seriously injured.
We wish we could say the same for the cows whom the “chicken” was encouraging people to eat. (The “chicken” was actually a man named Robert Hatter, who was holding a sign reading “Eat More Beef!”) Destined to be turned into beef patties, cows on factory farms suffer painful dehorning, branding, and castration without being given any painkillers. They feel terror, hunger, and thirst during their treacherous trek to the slaughterhouse, where they are hoisted upside down and slaughtered.
We’re hopeful, however, that his harrowing experience will cause Hatter to think twice about promoting violence toward other animals. I can’t think of a better way to do that than by ordering a copy of our vegetarian/vegan starter kit.
