    I found this website thru my sister who recently read "The Jungle". It's about what animals go thru from the moment they are raised to the moment when they are sent to the slaughter house.

    WARNING: If you easily get upset by seeing animals abused and beaten or have a 'weak stomach', please do not watch this video. This video contains graphic footage of livestock being abused, beaten and slaughtered. Viewer discretion is advised.

    The truth about meat.

    another reason why I choose to hunt and harvest animals who are living off the land rather than being bred and fed to be killed for us.

    the meat I've been lucky (and appreciative) to harvest is lean and not pumped full of chemicals.

    Oddly enough, while The Jungle inspired meat safety laws galore, it really wasn't about the meat-packing industry.

    Excellent book though.

    Although I think I'm going to go pick up some burgers on my way home tonight...
