The U.S. Humane Society recently released some undercover footage that revealed the less-than-ideal conditions that chickens were living in at one of the largest egg farms in America.
Animal rights activists are up in arms about the conditions shown on the video, but this is only the latest installment in a series of events that have brought the issue of animal cruelty on factory farms to the forefront of many animal welfare discussions.
Officials from the Humane Society are reaching out to individuals and organizations, like members of 4-Clubs, to educate them about the issues affecting farm animals in American today, according to the L.A. Times.
The officials hope to inspire the next generation to be more conscientious.
The organization has also been using more subversive tactics to get their point across - like buying up shares in publicly traded fast food companies, and pressuring the businesses to purchase products like cage-free eggs.
If you're worried about farm animal welfare, it may be wise to look into the policies of the companies whose animal products you purchase on a daily basis, to see if their values are in line with your own.
