FARMED ANIMAL WATCH ALERT
Sponsored by Animal Place, the Association of Veterinarians for
Animal Rights, Compassion in World Farming, The Fund for Animals,
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, and United Poultry
"An Animal's Place," is the cover story of this week's New York Times
Magazine. Author Michael Pollan's last cover article was "This
Steer's Life." See:
http://www.farmedanimal.com/Newsletters/Newsletter61.htm The current
article attempts to persuade readers that both humans and nonhuman
animals benefit more from alternative animal production than from
humans adopting a vegetarian diet. This lengthy article is so full of
sophistry that the magazine should, as a matter of journalistic
integrity, grant equal time to a counter article.
