Mercy For Animals Runs Huge Ad Campaign Promoting Vegetarianism

Filed under: Animal RightsPuppyPigAnimal Cruelty

MFA ad

Mercy For Animals is running a huge ad campaign throughout Chicago’s public transportation system.

MFA’s goal is to educate the public about the suffering of farm animals and promote vegetarianism.

The MFA states their reasoning for wanting people to convert to vegetarianism:

“Far from receiving the kindness and respect afforded to most dogs and cats, the billions of cows, pigs, and chickens raised and killed for meat in America lead lives filled with pain and suffering.

On today’s factory farms, animals are confined in filthy, windowless sheds, barren wire cages, gestation crates and other cruel confinement systems. These animals will never root in the soil, sunbathe, build nests or engage in any other natural behaviors.”

Their hundreds of ads on buses, subway and train stations and billboards focus on animals confined in tight spaces or the above one with a cute puppy and piglet side by side that says, “Why love one but eat the other?”

Makes you think. Both animals are totally adorbz.

Would U eat a puppy?? We think not. Save the cute little piggies!

Animal Rights Group Hopes Gruesome Undercover Video Puts Iowa Select Farms Out Of Business

Filed under: Sad SadAnimal RightsAnimal Cruelty

Sad. Disturbing. Cruel.

Mercy For Animals has used undercover videos to generate public outrage over the treatment of livestock said it now plans to use secret recordings to pressure large grocery chains to stop buying from farms that use practices it considers abusive.

The effort seemed to be working — several chains viewed the video and then either halted purchases from the targeted Iowa hog farm or expressed concern even before the group formally unveiled the recording at news conferences planned Wednesday in four cities.

Earlier this week, Mercy for Animals met with or sent letters to officials at Costco, Hy-Vee, Kroger and Safeway and provided links to its 2 1/2-minute video, then asked them to stop buying pork from Iowa Select Farms.

Watch the video, and see why you wouldn't what to have business with them ether!
