I took these pictures this morning, when these birds were still alive. Now they are DEAD.
These birds will be your lunch, or your dinner. You’ll order him up from a menu without knowing who he was. When eating her meat, her interests won’t even cross your mind. A bird’s whole life will end so that a few people can consume one meal.
These birds’ legs, thighs, wings, backs, breasts, gizzards, and livers are no longer their own. In fact, they’ve never been their own. These birds’ body parts will be turned into strips, tenders, nuggets, hot wings…and they’ll be baked, fried, roasted, broiled, barbecued, and grilled.
Today I was fortunate to be able to photograph– from my moving vehicle– the faces of a few of today’s victims of unnecessary slaughter. I sincerely hope that in looking at the faces of these individual sentient beings, you will find the place in your heart and mind to make the decision to stop consuming their bodies.
These are chickens, not “chicken.” RIP to all the birds killed on July 2, 2012…
