Yeah, that last leg of a meat animal's life -- the traveling to slaughter -- can be the cruellest. 

The problem is that decades of favoring economies of scale, with too-low consumer prices, are baked into the USDA slaughterhouse system. 

Even the humanest farmers are forced to truck livestock to USDA-approved slaughterhouses, causing the animals untold anxiety. Those animals deserve a good death, not just a good life.

He's using imagery from the Holocaust to get his point across. If this had been in a boxcar people would see what he's doing. It's disrespectful to the people who were killed in the Holocaust to try to motivate vegetarism by comparing it to the largest mass murder in human history. Unless of course you're anti-semitic and think Jews are comparable to animals raised for the purpose of being slaughtered and then made into food.

Reminds me of my walk to work everyday, my office is just a block up from the local Maple Leaf "distribution center". Frankly, I'm still a lover of meat, but it turns me off of pork products...

Maybe read Whole & Thrive and see reality of what is going on on this gross planet. I am so puzzled that majority of people still does not know TRUE (unpaid by corps) scientific results that animal protein is directly connected to cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes... Compassion is practical, not only for your health but also for this planet (meat & dairy industries are #1 of global warming & forced child labour) and not to talk about animals... I mean every day I dream about a planet that I do not have to see death around me, flesh, corpses, discretions, chicken periods... GROSS, who would want to eat that anyways?! Maybe alines come and start doing to us what we are doing to our animals... End of 22nd century we will be done. Humanity will destroy itself, we are feeding animals instead of people already... GREED will take us all down...

Are you journalist Railian or sycophant running ads for a rich interloper who doesn't face any of the same legal scrutiny as any NYC kid doing the same thing would? Pathetic, in every sense.
