PETA isn’t exactly known for keeping quiet and trying not to upset the apple cart. But it seems that Facebook thought we went too far when we posted this picture:


The social network yanked our photo off the site and sent us a message that said, “We removed the post below because it doesn’t follow the Facebook Community Standards.” But if graphic images such as this one are upsetting to people, they need to help put an end to the cruelty itself, not photos of it.

We’re not going to let this censorship slow us down. We’re going to keep showing people that eating animals means hurting animals, just as we did when we posted Peter Dinklage’s meat industry exposé, “Face Your Food,” which got many people’s attention and was widely shared.

Help show the social-media powers-that-be that animal advocates won’t be silenced while animals are still suffering: Share this video on your Facebook page.
