Re: “Omnivorous: The Golden Goose

Recently I was in Switzerland visiting a relative and we were walking in a residential area in a nearby village when we saw a small chicken yard at the rear of a house and were drawn to walk closer. The chickens were extremely belly-heavy and walked with difficulty. It seemed to us they had undergone gavage. Both of us could see that they were uncomfortable. Why should I deny the proof of my eyes because there are those who say there's no scientific proof?

An unnecessary obfuscation to keep us turned away from the sights and sounds we would rather not see or hear.
