“Some of the stories Gene Baur tells will break your heart and others will speak to your deepest convictions. It’s a book about appalling cruelty and heroic kindness, and it points the way to a better world.”
~ Alicia Silverstone
“Agribusiness factory farms subvert democracy and are some of the nation’s worst polluters. This book shows how they also treat animals with unspeakable cruelty. It is a compelling testament to the need to civilize this industry and end its radical practices for producing meat, dairy and eggs.” ~ Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

About Farm Sanctuary
Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization. Since incorporating in 1986, we have worked to expose and stop cruel practices of the “food animal” industry through research and investigations, legal and legislative actions, public awareness projects, youth education, and direct rescue and refuge efforts. Our shelters in Watkins Glen, N.Y., and Orland, Calif., provide lifelong care for hundreds of rescued animals, who have become ambassadors for farm animals everywhere by educating visitors about the realities of factory farming.
