Although animal cruelty may not always be so easy to identify, in one way or another, we are constantly surrounded by it. Our favorite fast-food restaurants use catchy slogans and “tasty” burgers to mask their support of physically abusing cows before they are slaughtered. Childhood favorite attractions such as zoos, aquariums, and theme parks take advantage of colorful scenes and exotic animals in order to lure in guests who (unknowingly) support the misery of animals in captivity. The makeup brands, cleaning products, and even medicines we utilize on a daily basis could be supporting animal testing in laboratories nationwide.
In the eyes of Compassion in World Farming, enough is enough. In their new campaign titled “End the Cage Age,” the organization intends to end the use of caged rabbits in laboratory testing experiments. Every year, over 330 million rabbits are bred in Europe … that’s more than the number of EU’s cows and pigs combined! The campaign includes a petition that will “call on Members of the European Parliament and all 28 European Agriculture Ministers to demand legislation to end the use of cages in rabbit farming.”
According to the video, “Every generation decides what cruelty they will tolerate.” What will you tolerate?
