Brilliant. Just brilliant.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Last week, the animal protection organization Mercy For Animals released a video taken undercover by an employee wearing a hidden camera at a dog factory farm in Kamrar, Iowa. The worker was employed between April and June of this year.<br><br>
The employee documented horrific abuses such as workers ripping out puppies' testicles without a single drop of painkillers, leading many to suffer from herniated intestines due to botched castration and die from their wounds. Workers were filmed cutting of the tails of puppies with clippers, again, without any use pain killer. A process called "thumping" was used at this facility where workers picked up puppies by their back legs and slammed them to the ground bashing their heads in order to "euthanize" the ones who weren't growing fast enough.</div>

<div class="quote-block"><i>Wait a second. Wait just a second.</i> I just realized that I accidentally (OK, it was purposeful) wrote 'dog' every time I meant 'pig' and wrote 'puppies' instead of 'piglets.' My apologies. We can all rest easy knowing that these abuses weren't inflicted on our beloved household pets.</div>

I was reading it, thinking, "Wow, of course a bunch of omnis will feel so awful for the dogs when the exact same thing happens to other farm animals, too." Then I read the end and thought it was brilliant! Did you see the first comment on the page? They obviously didn't get to the end of the article <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

I read 'dog' and felt sick to my stomach, then read 'pig' and felt even sicker.<br><br>
Sadly, before I opened this thread, I thought that maybe it was an exposé on a dog factory farm in Korea.

I want to say that after I polsted I saw some positive reactions. A friend of mine who is a meat eater (but likes animals) seemed to be really impressed by it, he wondered if it could change other people's views, said that the ending was a great twist and went on posting it as well
