Animal cruelty the norm

Re: "Diets clash: Oscar Mayer vs. Green Giant," Feb. 6

To the Editor:

Emmett Macfarlane wrote "vegetarian lobbyists inundate us with horrific tales, when, in fact, they are rare cases of animal cruelty."

I would suggest that you do just a little bit more research before making statements like this. Only reading the book Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser will clarify that animal cruelties, together with violations of human rights, are far from an exception in the meat industries.
