Animal Transport

In Canada, animals (cattle, pigs, horses) are trucked to slaughter on trips up to 36 hours without water. They are packed without space between them like slaves on a ship. There are three layers so feces drop from the higher layers onto the lower. The temperatures are so high that animals die of heat stroke. Industry makes the absurd claim that the longer the trip the lower the mortality. The industry charged a woman with attempting to poison the food supply when she offered a pig frothing at the mouth some water.

When humans travel, they have access to water. They have space enough to turn around. The air is kept at a reasonable temperature. There is decent ventilation. Animals deserve the same treatment.
