Tell the USDA: Fix Cruel, Outdated Transport for Farmed Animals!
Mercy For Animals • 55m
You’ve seen the trucks on the highway packed with pigs, chickens, or cows. In crowded trailers or stacked crates, animals suffer long journeys with no food or water while headed to slaughter. Their final hours are some of their most harrowing. Transport trucks are not designed to protect animals from harsh weather.
In winter, farmed animals endure below-freezing conditions and are exposed to snow, rain, and frigid winds. Many die of hypothermia. Some even freeze to the floors or sides of trailers.
In summer, temperatures inside trucks rise to well over 100°F. Many animals suffer heat stress, asphyxiation, and heart attacks.
This is unacceptable! Many animals suffer agonizing deaths from dehydration, suffocation, and severe injuries due to overcrowding. Join Mercy for Animals! Tell the USDA and the DOT to give more space, rest time, food, water and protection from extreme temperatures. Alex Cragun, Mercy For Animals' Director of Government Affairs, talks to UnchainedTV's Jane Velez-Mitchell.
