We are looking at the inhumane treatment of animals in the Western world, where many of us view them as nothing more than “bodies” to be raised for the slaughter.
We speak with Matt Rice, director of investigations for Mercy for Animals, about the large-scale animal abuse excused by federal laws at factory farms across America.

These investigations have led to raids of factory farms, rescues of abused farmed animals, and passage of anti-cruelty laws.
