Past Pic: Toronto Chicken Save Vigil



On July 23rd of 2015 I attended my first Toronto Chicken Save vigil, and on the 19th of the next month I wrote up some thoughts. I love animals and put them on a 'rights' par with we humans, so I don't understand why I'm not more active in the animal rights movement. Having said that, this armchair critic was not impressed with the clumsy and inefficient tactics of the Chicken (Cow, PigSave people. But, at least they are doing something about the issue.

Thanks!

What's happening to Anita is a farce. That criminal treatment of animals is the bigger issue.
