Confucius said there is little that separates man from animals and most people throw that away. Inflicting cruelty on others is one behavior that puts man below animals. Unfortunately, this is just one of many examples of workers abusing animals at poultry and meat factories.
Confucius said to love something is to want it to live. For man to rise above animals, he must show compassion and humanity. Religions talk about God's love. Man is made in God's image. So how can man not show this same love for all living beings?
Confucius said that the practice of humanity is reciprocity: do not do unto others what you would not wish done to yourself. Later, Jesus said the same thing: do unto others as you would have them do unto you. This is known as the golden rule. Likewise, if you understand cause & effect and karma then you also will follow the golden rule.
Confucius said: Of all that Heaven has produced, and Earth nourishes, the greatest is Man. Heaven’s purpose is contained in our Nature. We must do some soul-searching and look within. Uphold our conscience, cultivate our humanity, and realize the Oneness of our True Nature. This is the practice of Dao.

Petitioning Tyson Foods

Tell Tyson to Stop Ripping Heads Off Live Chickens

Petition by Candice Bergen and Mercy For Animals

Hi, I’m Candice Bergen.

If you’re like me, you would never condone animal abuse. But if you eat chicken from Tyson Foods (which supplies McDonald’s, KFC, Chick-fil-A, and more), you may be unknowingly supporting some of the most sickening animal abuse imaginable. 

How do I know? Multiple undercover investigations by Mercy For Animals have uncovered ongoing and systemic animal abuse at Tyson Foods. Most recently, a brave investigator used a hidden camera to document conditions at a Tyson slaughterhouse in Mississippi. 

What he witnessed was beyond disgusting.

I watched the video in horror as workers who seemed to take pleasure in tormenting the frightened birds punched, beat, and threw the animals before violently slamming them upside down into metal shackles. 

One worker even used the shackled live birds as punching bags.

The birds were then painfully shocked with electricity to immobilize their bodies before having their throats cut open. The investigator documented countless birds who weren’t shackled properly getting their heads ripped off while they were still alive and conscious.

The investigator reported these abuses to his supervisor on multiple occasions. He even called the Tyson Foods hotline to report the daily cruelty he had witnessed. But he saw no corrective actions taken. At Tyson Foods, extreme cruelty to animals is just business as usual.

But I think we can change that.

Because of caring people like you, who sign petitions like this and use their voices to speak up for the voiceless, we’ve already seen some of the biggest food companies make important changes. 

For example, after hearing from thousands of people through, Nestlé, Walmart, and Starbucks all made commitments to ending some of the worst forms of factory farm cruelty in their global supply chains. There’s no reason Tyson Foods can’t do the same. 

Please, take a moment to sign my petition calling on Tyson Foods to implement meaningful animal welfare changes.    

Thank you.
