as Paul McCartney has said, if slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian...these investigative videos are our glass walls...keep up the good work!

If you do not wish to have meat as part of you're diet that is you're choose. However this is NOT an accurate illustration of farming! WE CARE about our animals! I'm a farmer and yes I found the video clips to be repulsive but that is not how animals are cared for on my farm. The laws that were talked about in the video do NOT make it illegal to shoot undercover films. It makes it illegal for people to shoot this video and not turn it over to the authorities in a timely manner.

Thank you for this show on the abuse of animals by these vicious illegal immigrants. I shall be contacting my congressman and senators to ask them to investigate why these criminals are being allowed to stay  in this country.  We need to increase fines and maybe even close down these businesses who hire these pieces of trash from Mexico.

@mr. parker   Sure...blame the immigrants and not the farmers who allow such behavior and whose desire for greater profits encourage this abuse and neglect.

You totally missed the point.  No animal deserves this treatment!!!   I can guarantee you that a legal citizen trained the immigrants how to do their job exactly the way they are doing it!  After all, they were hired by someone ...

"Awareness is bad for the meat business. Conscience is bad for the meat business. Sensitivity to life is bad for the meat business. DENIAL, however, the meat business finds indispensable."
