“If you torture a chicken and you are caught, you’re likely to be arrested. If you scald thousands of chickens alive, you’re an industrialist who will be lauded for your acumen.”

Animals raised or food are not covered under animal cruelty laws, and chickens are not even protected under the Human Slaughter Act. Truthfully, what is done to chickens reflects the depravity humans are capable of. Instead, we should reflect God’s love for animals by showing them compassion and mercy.
