    Piglets are separated from their mothers when they are as young as 10 days old.Once her piglets are gone, the sow is impregnated again, and the cycle continues for three or four years before she is slaughtered.Approximately 3 to 4 million cats and dogs- many of them healthy, young, and adoptable- must be euthanized in animal shelters every year.Cows produce milk for the same reason that humans do- to nourish their young – but on dairy farms calves are taken away at 1 day old.1 day old calves are fed milk replacements (including cattle blood) so that their mothers’ milk can be sold to humans.Animals can suffer brain damage or death from heatstroke in just 15 minutes. Beating the heat is extra tough for dogs.Each year, approximately 10,000 bulls die in bullfights.Most cows are intensively confined, unable to fulfill their most basic desires, such as nursing their calves, even for a single day.Cows are fed unnatural, high-protein diets-which include dead chickens, pigs, and other animals.Overall, factory-farmed animals, including those on dairy farms, produce 1.65 billion tons of manure each year.Kid goats are boiled alive to make gloves.The skins of unborn calves and lambs – some aborted, others from animal fucking slaughtered pregnant cows – are considered “luxurious.”About 285 million hens are raised for eggs in the US. In tiny spaces so small they cannot move a wing.The wire mesh of the cages rubs off hens feathers, chafes their skin, and causes their feet to become crippled.Before 1986, only four states had felony animal cruelty laws.Glue traps cause terror and agony to any animals who touch them, leaving them to suffer for days.In one study, 70% of animal abusers also had records for other crimes.Sealers often hook baby seals in the eye, cheek, or mouth to avoid damaging their fur, then drag them across the ice to skin them.Arsenic-laced additives are mixed into the feed of about 70 percent of the chickens raised for food.Every year, nearly a million seals worldwide are subjected to painful and often lingering deaths, largely for the sake of fashion.Scientists estimate that 100 species go extinct every day! That’s about one species every 15 minutes.Every year in the US, 50 million male piglets are castrated (usually without being given any painkillers).More than 15 million warm-blooded animals are used in research every year.The methods used in fur factory farms are designed to maximize profits, almost always at the expense of the animals.To test cosmetics, cleaners, and other products, hundreds of thousands of animals are poisoned, blinded, and killed every year.In extremely crowded conditions, piglets are prone to stress-related behavior such as cannibalism and tail-biting.Farmers often chop off piglets’ tails and use pliers to break off the ends of their teeth- without giving them any painkillers.For identification purposes, farmers cut out chunks of young pigs ears.Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages.For fur, small animals may be crammed into boxes and poisoned with hot, unfiltered engine exhaust from a truck.Engine exhaust is not always lethal, and some animals wake up while they are being skinned.
