    No egg farm is without some sort of cruelty. Even organic and free range egg farms kill male chicks.

    Higher life forms have been appropriating lower life forms for use since life began.

    I absolutely cannot stand animal cruelty...there are hundreds of more videos like this showing the horrible conditions the corporate companies put these helpless creatures through for a buck with no regard to their well being. I CANNOT EVEN BELIEVE THAT THE PPL WORKING THERE DON'T CARE...I worry about how this generation's outlook towards nature is turning out T-T

    All forms of animal husbandry have problems of cruelty inherent in them. This is what makes meat consumption always problematical.

    This is what happens when a generation raised on the anthropomorphous animals presented in Disney films. They grow up thinking animals are just people in feathers, scales, hides or fur.

    I do not condone unnecessary animal cruelty but to get away from it completely (some would argue even caging, penning, or slaughtering an animal is cruel) I would think we would have to go back to being hunter gatherers and when you get up in the morning and before you go to work you have to hunt eggs from the free-roaming chickens in your neighborhood and get milk from the free-roaming cows grazing on your lawn. And when you get off of work you hunt the free-roaming bison, deer, etc. with the bow you conveniently carry in your briefcase.

    Even the Humane Society recognizes you can't eliminate animal cruelty when in its own video is plainly says, "Help REDUCE [emphasis mine] animal suffering."

    This is the problem when anthropocentric, self-centred people have all feeling and emotion knocked out of them.. they wind up thinking living things are just robots without "thoughts" "feelings" or "consciousness" and that only humans are worth empathy, if anything living is worth being empathic for at all, besides the lone, sad self

    Care to quote and comment on the entire post instead of excerpting two lines? The video was of one egg farm. Does the same situation exist else where? Probably so. Are there others who treat their animals less cruel? Yes. But what is cruel and less cruel is a matter of degrees and subjective. As I pointed out and what you chose to ignore is that there are those who think we shouldn't exploit animals at all; that to cage them, pen them, slaughter them is cruel, and there are others who want to do anything they need to do to provide a product the market place at the lowest cost possible to maximize profit. There must be a sane viable solution, but there are some out there that, because of their irrational athropomorphized image of animals, won't accept any level of exploitation of animals as a source of food and even go so far as to vilify hunters who hunt animals (free-range) for food. And no I am not a hunter, but I respect their legal right to do so.

    I'm just saying there is no sanity at either extreme of the animal "rights" issue.

    The only ways to eliminate all animal cruelty in farming are to stop it, live exclusively on roadkill, or go vegan and don`t exploit animals in any way....or wait for synthetic meat from the laboratory.

    That's what I like to bring up when talking about animal cruelty in regards to eating.

    When you look at the natural world, this "cruelty" done by humans for food is a billion times more humane than tearing the flesh off other living creatures like predators do in the wild.

    Not true. Farm animals can be properly raised and cared for. We exist with them in a symbiotic relationship, each relying on the other for its survival. There is nothing wrong with that. Everything in nature lives in this symbiotic way.

    You already know this from the video, but Sweden's already have these kinds of law. Come on America, pick up the slack!

    Are you telling me that your sister (a woman) does the roadkill hunting, and then presumably you do the cooking? That is very progressive.
