Petitioning Warren Buffett

Stop stunning, plucking, and killing 12,000 chickens per hour.

Let's tell Warren Buffett, the world's greatest investor, to stop killing more than 12,000 chickens per hour to make profit. Many of us know something is very wrong in our industrial food supply and the animal factory farms that make up a growing percentage of it. So when I learned that Warren Buffett is making money off mass animal destruction, I cried.

Bloomberg.com ran a story about a subsidiary of his company Berkshire Hathaway that sells the Meyn Maestro, a device that stuns, plucks, and kills up to 12,000 chickens every hour. It is the best-selling chicken evisceration technology on the market and allows Buffett to earn dollars from the death of each chicken that meets the Meyn Maestro. More animal killings means more profit. But how long can that system go on?

Of course, Buffett isn't the only person responsible for and profitting from tens of thousands of animal killings each hour. But he surely is the most well known.

As an entrepreneur and investor myself, I know the power our choices make, which is why I launched FedByThreads.com which feeds 12 meals to hungry Americans from each of our unique clothing designs we sell. We can solve food supply problems in ways that don't require 12,000 chicken deaths per hour.

And you don't have to be a vegetarian like me to know something is wrong in a system where 80% of the chicken sold by Tyson Foods had either salmonella or campylobacter according to 2010 findings from Consumer Reports.

I ate meat for 30 years and have made choices to reduce animal suffering for myself by becoming a vegetarian. But I know it is unrealistic to ask you to stop eating meat. Instead, if humans are going to eat meat, the animals at the very least should be treated properly.

Tell Warren Buffett to profit off of things other than animal suffering. Ask him to have a heart. As it is, he already is the world's third richest man. Does he really need profit from more than 12,000 chicken deaths an hour to pad his already-swollen bank account?

By signing this petition, you are asking Warren Buffett to divest his holdings at Berkshire Hathaway that profit from the mass killings of animals every hour.

Please sign this petition and I will deliver it to Warren Buffett's headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska.

Thank you,

Dear Mr. Buffett,

Please stop killing more than 12,000 chickens per hour.

You are the world's greatest investor so please lead by example & stop profiting from mass animal killings. A growing number of us know something is very wrong in our industrial food supply and the animal factory farms that make up a rising percentage of it. So when I learned that you make money off mass animal destruction, I cried.

Bloomberg.com ran a story about a subsidiary of your company Berkshire Hathaway that sells the Meyn Maestro, a device that stuns, plucks, and kills up to 12,000 chickens every hour. It is the best-selling chicken evisceration technology on the market and allows you to earn dollars from the death of each chicken that meets the Meyn Maestro. More animal killings means more profit for you. But how long can that system go on?

Of course, you aren't the only person responsible for and profiting from tens of thousands of chicken killings each hour. But you surely are the most well known.

And you don't have to be a vegetarian to know something is wrong in a system where 80% of the chicken sold by Tyson Foods had either salmonella or campylobacter according to 2010 findings from Consumer Reports.

I am asking you to profit off of things other than animal suffering. Do you have a heart? As it is, you are already the world's third richest man. Do you really need to profit from more than 12,000 chicken deaths an hour to grow your bank account?

I ask you to divest the holdings at Berkshire Hathaway that profit from the mass killings of animals every hour. Lead by example. You are in the twilight of your life but you still can do a lot to save animals from mass slaughter. Will you rise to the occasion?

Sincerely,
