But that number – 16 million – pales when compared with the number being slaughtered in our current war. Each day we slaughter a mind-boggling 203 million intelligent, life-loving sentient beings.

An Australian documentary released this year reveals the true horror of life and death for these animals. You can watch the trailer at www.youtube.com/
After viewing it, I’m sure you’ll be convinced that it’s time to end the greatest war of all time – our war on animals.
