Better Supervision and Treatment of Animals on Farms
This petition had 1,019 supporters
Nearly 10 billion farm animals each year suffer through horrible conditions that would leave the everyday consumer horrified. The conditions of these factory farms are negatively affecting not only the animals, but the consumers as well, with nearly 73,000 cases of illness each year in the United States alone. The only way to get things to change is to fight for better treatment and supervision of animals on factory farms.
Facts about meat in the U.S. :
- 99% of the meat comes from factory farms.
- More than 80% of antibiotics produced were fed to livestock. These antibiotics can contribute to the rise of superbugs- deadly aniyibiotic-resistant bacteria.
