Our guest tonight is Gail A. Eisnitz, author of the book “Slaughterhouse” and Chief Investigator for the Humane Farming Association (HFA).

Gail A. Eisnitz, a winner of the Albert Schweitzer Medal for outstanding achievement in animal welfare, has done work that has resulted in exposés by ABC’s Good Morning America, PrimeTime Live, Dateline NBC, and has been featured in newspapers including The New York Times, Miami Herald, Detroit Free Press, Texas Monthly, Denver Business Journal, Los Angeles Times, and US News & World Report.

Eisnitz was the driving force behind a front-page, award-winning exposé in The Washington Post documenting slaughterhouse atrocities entitled “They Die Piece by Piece.”  The Washington Post reporter later described Eisnitz as “the most courageous investigator I’ve ever seen” and the story was one of the highest reader-response pieces ever run by The Washington Post.

It is often assumed that farm animals are slaughtered in a clean, orderly process that minimizes stress and pain.  But nothing could be further from the truth.  HFA’s groundbreaking investigations have exposed the fact that farm animals are routinely dismembered while still fully conscious in U.S. slaughterplants.

HBO’s Death on A Factory Farm, focused exclusively on the groundbreaking work of the Humane Farming Association, reveals mistreatment of animals within the pork industry.

The USDA’s Meat Animal Research Center (MARC) in Nebraska has, for decades, been using taxpayer dollars to fund meat-industry research to genetically and chemically alter farm animals.  In addition to torturing and mutilating live, defenseless animals, MARC has starved to death as many as 6,500 animals.

indexSlaughterhouse is available on Amazon

This show will be hosted by Debbie Coffey, V.P. & Dir. of Wild Horse Affairs for Wild Horse Freedom Federation.
