I tell anyone who will listen: BUY CAGE FREE EGGS! It is such an easy thing to do to be a better human being. Why make animals suffer when they don't have to? Below is a petion to sign to tell McDonalds to please buy cage free. As a stockholder in the company, I believe it is in their best interest to do this! Here is more from the petion:
A new Mercy For Animals undercover investigation has exposed shocking cruelty to animals at a McDonald’s egg supplier.
During the investigation, MFA documented workers burning off the beaks of baby birds without any painkillers, and grabbing hens by their throats and roughly shoving them into battery cages, chicks trapped and mangled in cage wire suffering from open wounds and torn beaks, and dead hens left to rot and decompose in cages with birds still laying eggs for McDonald’s Egg McMuffins.
Although all of these are examples of intolerable cruelty, perhaps the worst form of abuse these birds are forced to endure is a life of prolonged misery in a tiny wire battery cage. Battery cages are so small that each bird has less space than a single sheet of notebook paper to live out nearly her entire life. She is unable to freely spread her wings, perch or roost, breathe fresh air or see the sun. Every natural instinct is frustrated, as these birds have been reduced to mere egg-producing machines.
As a civilized society, it is our moral obligation to prevent needless cruelty to animals. As the largest egg purchaser in the United States, McDonald’s has not only the responsibility, but also the enormous purchasing power to ensure that the products sold in its restaurants are not the products of egregious animal abuse. Please use the form below to send a polite email to CEO Jim Skinner urging McDonald’s to commit to ending its supplier relationships with battery cage egg operations and to create a clear roadmap for speedily achieving 100% cage-free status in the United States – something the company has already done in Europe.
And the video which shows the terrible life the hens live in order to serve you breakfast! But this is not just a McDonald's problem! All of us, each and every time we go to market must buy cage free eggs. Yes it costs a bit more, but that is the price of heaven.
