Now in the wake of Florence’s flooding, which has caused millions of factory farm animals to drown, is the time to rethink, and get rid of, factory farms. What a shameful practice it was before leaving these poor creatures (chickens, turkeys and pigs) in cramped cages to drown. Imagine the noises made by them as the water rose inside their enclosure of hell.

Now the lagoons holding excrement have breached into the rivers, not to mention what do we do with all of the carcasses? Factory farms are inhumane to the animals and are also going to kill our planet.
