Beyond Poor Puppies & Chickens

‘Hi guys, i need to ask you a huge favor. Please circulate this photo on your Facebook profiles and send it to your friends. We need to find these people and make them pay for the abuse and pain they are inflicting on innocent animals. We don’t know what country they are at, but facebook is worldwide, so let’s use the power of social media and friends to capture these abusers. Thank you in advance, i would be so grateful if you could do that for the little animals out there. Please notify the police and animal protection services as soon as you come accross some valid information.’

The message above was copied from Facebook. It made me think…. What about these other hung (and bled dry) animals:

Virtually all other animals murdered for food, skin and blood are also hung up, in millions daily worldwide. Why are not more doing something to address, to prevent such continual cruelty… by choosing not to demand for animals flesh and produce? Is killing alright if the killed are eaten? If so, would it be alright to kill and eat humans? Why do we choose only to speak up for the occasional tortured puppy? Speciesism doesn’t make sense as all sentient beings suffer when killed. Just as we wouldn’t wish others to kill us just because we look less cute, or because we are more tasty, why should we demand any sentient being’s death?
