Princess lacks compassion

Dear Editor:This letter is in response to Alison Berkley’s column on Dec. 1, 2005.Ms. Berkley lacks compassion for the plight of living beings, whether they are chickens, cows or turkeys. Ms. Berkley states that the manner in which these animals are slaughtered and packaged for our consumption causes her to “almost forget that they were animals in the first place.”Most animals consumed by Americans live in crates with no light or space to move, are decapitated, skinned or boiled while still alive, are pumped up with antibiotics and hormones, and are force-fed with tubes down their throats. This is disturbing and it is sickening that Ms. Berkley makes light of it.Michelle FoxAspen
