Letter – Funny kind of love

Re: Chicken Little and the big business of eggs, March 22-28

Funny kind of love

It’s a funny kind of love that raises an animal for seven to 18 weeks, then butchers it while it’s still in its youth. It is a funny kind of “host” that houses 40,000 laying hens to be annually “turned over.” Your featured local farmers’ customers are able to “know where their food is coming from,” but not, unfortunately, to know that it is cruelty-free. The 100-mile diet and the compassion diet are two different things.

S.B. Julian,

Victoria
