Each year, World Day for Farmed Animals seeks to expose the public to unpleasant realities faced by animals used for meat, dairy and eggs. The shocking truth includes:

  • Baby animals taken from their mothers at birth, only to be killed or raised in confinement
  • Castration, tail-removing, and beak-searing all with out painkillers
  • A gruesome and terrifying slaughter, often while fully conscious

That's why we were shocked and disappointed to learn that Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings has deemed 4 billboard drafts unfit for their Public Service Announcement program in every market of the country - even when an age-specific warning for graphic material was added to the website. Attempts to clarify what steps could be taken to modify the billboards went unanswered by Clear Channel.

Given the lengths that animal agribusiness goes to hide their operations (for instance, attempting to pass "ag-gag" legislation that bans the videoography and photography of animal operations), it is clear they have much to hide. And given that these attempted laws failed in all 11 states they were introduced in this year, it is just as clear that the public won't allow this information to be hidden.
