I don’t mean to be a downer (get it? downer?), but putting downer pigs in the food supply just ain’t cool!

Yesterday, Ecorazzi told you that CNN’s Nicole Lapin reported on the Humane Society’s efforts to ban downer pigs — animals too sick or injured to walk — from being used in food production.

Well, just last night, HLN’s Jane Velez-Mitchell had Nicole on her show to find out more about this über cruel process. Turns out that not only is the National Pork Producers Council okay with the brutal slaughtering of downer pigs, but they freely admit it’s standard practice.

Whoa! Who has two thumbs and thinks the National Pork Producers Council needs a serious values check? This guy!

If you want to help end this nasty procedure, Jane recommends getting involved with the Humane Society of the United States or signing Farm Sanctuary’s petition asking President Obama to ban the slaughter of downer pigs.

Alec Baldwin wants turkey-less Thanksgiving, ignores other animals

No less turkeys would be saved if Baldwin and Farm Sanctuary asked people to go vegan.


If you only want a less-cruel turkey industry, you don’t give a shit about turkeys

There’s more than enough out their promoting the use of animals already- can’t animal rights activists agree to be the ones who say stop it and mean it?


Vandalism and aggression won’t help veganism

These acts of intimidation and aggression don’t change public perspective on veganism for the better, and that’s the only thing that will help animals.
