Egg production on the scale mickey d's needs is not a ma and pa farm operation. It's a huge factory farm and at their best I suspect a lot of people would call it 'cruel'. Same thing for beef and pork production, as well as chicken, turkey, you name it.

People are happy to eat sausage (or in this case egg) but don't want to see how it is made. The quote at the end really says it all: "documented daily abuses that would shock and horrify most Americans yet are largely considered standard and acceptable to the egg industry." I would wager that anyone with any agrarian experience would also find nothing wrong with these 'shocking' practices. The real problem is that so few people understand and appreciate how the food they eat is produced. Do not misunderstand, I do not think that animals should be needlessly mistreated. However, I am willing to bet that this group would find half of what happens on a real farm (not a glorified petting zoo) to be animal cruelty. After all...you know they kill the animals right?

Having seen the length that animal rights groups will go to in order to make a case for their cause.. I am not doubting that they could have staged the cruelty to document it on their videos. I don't trust animal rights groups any more than I trust the government. They are all full of lies.
