The Green Quote: Wolfgang Puck Speaks Out On Animal Welfare In The Gothamist
“If you would go to some of these huge farms where they raise veal, and they’re in these little cages where they can’t turn around and they can’t stand up, it’s so depressing. I went once when my son was 15 and he started to cry.”
“We always said we want to know how people treat everything we eat. And of course they get killed at the end, but during their life span they should be treated humanely.”
