In wake of the largest egg recall in United States history, the Dalai Lama is speaking out against the cruel egg industry. With more than a half billion eggs already recalled because of possible salmonella contamination, it’s clear that modern factory farming is doing harm to more than just our animal friends.

In an official statement released to The Humane Society of the United States, the Dalai Lama said, “The abuse we inflict on hens has always been particularly disturbing to me and I have always been particularly concerned toward how these animals are treated in industrial food production. I am troubled to learn about the practice of confining egg laying hens in tiny cages. In these cages, birds cannot engage in their natural behaviours, such as spreading their wings, laying eggs in a nesting area, perching, scratching at the ground, even standing on a solid surface. Each hen has less space to live than the very sheet of paper I have written this letter on. Turning these defenseless animals into egg-producing machines with no consideration for their welfare whatsoever is a degradation of our own humanity. Switching to cage free eggs would reduce the suffering of these animals.”

As of right now, close to 95 percent of egg-laying hens in the United States are confined in battery cages, and we think that totally stinks.  Big props to the Dalai Lama for speaking out!
