I completely agree with Shelby. I did a research paper on Factor Farms in college and words cannot explain how horrifying the animals are treated. All animals are sentient beings. I am hoping that there can be more humane ways for the meat and poutry industries. On another note, I'm love how Shark Week is opening up peoples eyes to these beautiful magnificent creatures and stirring away from stereotypes of them being pure man eating predator.

It's disgusting how animals are treated by humans, especially the horrors they are subject to on factory farms. My hope is one day enough people will wise up to this and the mistreatment will come to an end
