We are finally making strides in reducing animal cruelty in the world. The Ringling Brothers removing elephants from their show and Sea World finally ending the killer whale programs. However, their is a practice still being used with baby cows grown in tiny crates that is absolutely unacceptable and we need your help!
Despite intense public outcry, hundreds of thousands of calves raised for veal are confined in individual crates too narrow for them even to turn around. Tied by their necks to restrict their movement, they’re totally immobilized for their very short 16-week long lives.
Even the American Veterinary Medical Association says that calves should be able to turn around and the American Veal Association—the veal industry’s trade group—”recommends that the entire veal industry convert to the group housing methodology.”
I received this message in my Inbox from Change.org:
So I’d ask you to sign this petition and help us stop this practice. You can make a difference. You can also make a difference by educating yourself and not buying veal. Retailers such as Wolfgang Puck and Bon Appétit no longer serve veal from calves confined in crates. Strauss Veal (the largest U.S. veal producer) and Marcho Farms have both converted their veal operations to crate-free housing.
The Humane Society offers materials that make it easier for consumers to avoid supporting veal crates—and that’s one of the ways you can help! Some include their guide to meat and dairy labels, our list of dairy-free and delicious products, and dozens of delicious, humane recipes.
