End the Horrific Torture of Animals on Factory Farms

Target: The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

Goal: Protect animals and our environment from the consequences of raising livestock for human gain.

More than three billion livestock animals are viciously abused, tortured, mutilated, and slaughtered for human use every day. The number of livestock sent to slaughter each year is eight times higher than the human population on planet Earth, according to the United Nations. Never in history have so many animals died or suffered more throughout their lives.

The main reason for animal suffering and abuse is factory farming. The animals are sentient beings with a will to live, but humans convert them into machines that generate products for their profit including meat, milk, and eggs.

Chickens, ducks, pigs, rabbits, geese, turkeys, sheep, goats, and cattle endure countless hours of torture to be either killed for meat or die because of starvation, disease, and other horrifying causes. Most of these animals are confined in tiny cages, have body parts brutally cut off without the use of painkillers, are carelessly thrown away alive, crushed with clubs, have tubes forcefully pushed down their throats to fatten them up, and never see the light of day. Sick and weak animals often die without veterinary care. Their brief, anonymous lives end sad and alone; they never even experience the slightest glimpse of compassion.

The animal abuse continues on its way to the slaughterhouse because the transport conditions are extremely inhumane. Animals are crammed into large trucks, sometimes traveling long distances, without food or water, many get injured or die already before meeting the metal bolt.

Raising animals for human use not only has devastating effects on the animals themselves, but also our environment. The livestock industry is the source of a broad spectrum of environmental impacts, including climate change. The livestock industry causes 18% of global greenhouse gas emissions. The rising demand for animal products and the lack of land has caused the livestock industry to become the main cause for clearing forests to turn them into pasture. Already do livestock farms cover one-third of the world’s total land and more than two-thirds of its agricultural land.

Furthermore, the livestock industry produces enormous quantities of waste. The livestock industry in the U.S. alone produces 116,000 pounds of waste per second.

To prevent farm animal suffering and giving our planet a chance to recover from our ghastly actions, we have to end factory farming. Every creature on the planet deserves a chance at life. Sign this petition to stop the exploitation of animals for human gain.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Honourable Mrs. Bibeau,

Nearly a trillion animals are tortured and killed for human use every year. While people use their leather purses, eat their steak, and crack their breakfast eggs, they contribute to a great deal of pain and misery.

Animals, people, and our environment alike suffer from the livestock industry that pollutes our planet and causes detrimental diseases.

Every sentient being has the right to live. We only have one planet earth, I ask you: Why do you support its downfall? Stop factory farming in Canada.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    It breaks my heart to see the way that innocent animals are abused. I wish one day people and animals could live together in harmony where there would be no abuse, neglect, pain and suffering. We need to realize that we share this world with other living things and we need to be more considerate and compassionate towards them. I’ve read about the suggestion to put camera’s in slaughterhouses, so that those caught on camera abusing animals would be punished. I agree with this. Something needs to be done to end this rampant animal abuse.

  2. How do these people that do this live with themselves. How do they sleep at night. I wish the same thing would happen to them

  3. The simple truth is, no matter how many people SAY they love animals, if you are eating animals of any kind, then you are part of the reason farm animal abuse exists. If people stopped eating animals and transitioned to plant-based foods, all animal production and slaughterhouses would shut down. There are excellent substitutes for just about everything.

    We should also ask and demand that food packages distributed to needy people are vegetarian or vegan.

    There’s a lot people can do. And until we all do these things, animals will continue to suffer. A petition is not going to change this as long as people buy animal products.

    Remember, When you’ve got them by their wallets, their hearts and minds will follow. And NOT BEFORE.

  4. If slaughter houses had glass walls, less people would eat meat!
    go vegetarian.. these sentient beings are more intelligent than most of the human population!!

  5. This just goes to show that the human species is NOT the “master species.” We are the worst, most violent animal on the planet, yet humans pride themselves on “advances” very interesting.

    This is truly heartbreaking & shameful. Please STOP this inherent madness now!

  7. I am absolutely sickened by the horrific unimaginable torture, suffering and an excruciating agonising death the precious and innocent ANIMALS endure on these vile and evil Factory Farms from hell by the vile and evil rotten animal torturing murdering lowlife Human Species. These vile and evil Fctory Farms from hell must be stopped and banned forever. It is about time the filthy lowlife animal torturing murdering Human Species was exterminated.No precious and innocent animal or wildlife is safe from the lowlife animal torturing murdering filthy Human Species.
    They are the monsters on our planet.

  8. Our race is a disgrace…torture all this ppl…world would be much better without them.

  9. So long as Canada, U.S.A. Russia, Denmark, France, Sweden, China, Brazil, Argentina, S.Africa and Korea treat their animals as profit making products, these countries will never be able to get rid of the pandemic and the Covid 19 mutations. This is the curse of Mother Nature on mankind for inflicting such despair, pain and scare on her sentient beings. These countries will continue to suffer despite the vaccines available to them.

    First and foremost, thank you Carmen Edenhofer for bringing light to all the suffering and torture that farming animals endure in their lives. Every living being deserves proper humane treatment, proper humane housing, proper nutrition, proper Veterinarian care, proper and humane care, and the respect that every other living being deserves to have on this planet. The mistreatment, abuse, suffering, and torture that these animals currently endure is unacceptable and inexcusable. The vicious and cruel intentions of Men needs to change in order to resolve the heinous mistreatment of animals.

  11. Agree all comments. How can people be so cruel laws need to change now NO EXCUSE FOE THIS TO ANIMALS DO THE SAME TO THEM WHO DO THIS HORRIFIC ABUSE INCLUDING THE GOVERMENT FOR LETTING THIS GO ON. ALSO FOR CANADA FOR THE SEAL KILLINGS ITS FUCKEN BULLSHIT WHAT HAPPENS TO THESE INNOCENT ANIMALS . THE PEOPLE WHO BUY THIS STUFF NEED BEATING TO DEATH.

  12. Richard Hofman says:

    There is only one way how to change this horrible problem once forever.
    All shops will change their offers for vegan food overnight!
    I will accept this fully once see vegan food in shelves.
    I will not cry for meat food when I will not see it in shelves, indeed.

  13. Muriel Servaege says:

    Though I didn’t eat a lot of meat,I had to stop eating animals for health reasons (yes, yes) about 14 years ago and I am feeling much better now. Eating meat is not necessary at all – on the contrary. I’s just a matter of habit.

  14. Monstrous monstrous evil, heartbreaking and horrific, karma is theirs – I feel you, poor lost innocent souls; their blood on your souls

    The abuse, torture & murder of the innocents

    Some heartbreaks can never be unseen, some horrors never unheard – PLEASE GOD

    And the universe weeps tears of blood

    Your life as theirs, as their death

  15. Factory farms and concentration camps – no difference in my opinion. Enough of this anthropocentric BS! All living things are equal, humans are not superior and do not have a greater right to exist.

  16. i feel no remorse for being a misanthrope when I think of Ms. Bibeau and also Patti Hajdu. The Liberals will not get my vote next election!

  17. Stephanie Geyser says:

    Until humans stop demanding veal and other baby animal products to eat, these factory farms and slaughter-houses will continue to exist in order to serve the demand. It’s no good to make laws to ban them – they will continue to exist and thrive, in order to meet the demand (and to make money for their owners). Closing down these abhorrent torture chambers will ONLY end when humans collectively decide to change their eating habits – which (sadly) will NEVER happen.

  18. ABSOLUTELY HORRIFIC CRUELTY, these evil, wicked, greedy `people`, who care nothing for these defenceless souls, these animals who should be treated with loving care, respect and not transported or slaughtered.
    They should be protected at ALL times and those wicked morons should be PUNISHED and I mean PUNISHED for their actions and allowing any of this wretched hell to happen to these animals.

    AS EVER, KARMA WILL SURELY FIND THEM…..BECAUSE YOU CANNOT HIDE FROM THE KARMA YOU MAKE….IT IS BEYOND US…

  19. Julia Edinger says:

    MUST STOP ALL THE “ANIMAL ABUSERS” BY GIVING VERY HARSH PUNISHMENTS‼️ THEY IS A “HUGE SIGN OF EVIL SOUL” INNOCENT ANIMALS AND CHILDREN ARE IN GRAVE DANGER‼️ THIS IS SERIOUS,,,,STOP LOOKING THE OTHER WAY STOP IGNORING THIS‼️ THESE ABUSERS ARE “POTENTIAL MURDERS” ‼️

  20. I ALWAYS SIGN AND SHARE YOUR PETITIONS, I WILL NOT SIGN THIS VEGAN PUSHING PETITION. I AGREE THERE ARE SOME FACTORY FARMS THAT NEED REMOVING AND SOME WANT IMPROVING BUT TO BACK THE IRRISPONCIBLE UNREALISTIC VEGAN PROMOTING PETITION I WILL NEVER DO. I HOPE PEOPLE WILL READ IT AND REALISE WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT. STOP TRYING TO MAKE PEOLE FEEL GUILTY FOR EATING A HEALTHY DIET THAT THE HUMAN RASE HAS LIVED ON AND OWES ITS GOOD HEALTH AND EXISTANCE TO FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS.
