This Plain Dealer article once again draws out, almost accidentally, how the disregard of animal interests is bound up with a disregard for both the natural world and fellow human beings. "But the cows in mega-dairies farms with many hundreds of cows never set foot on grass, never feel the sun or rain on their backs. They never leave the confines of their concrete-floored barns until their milk production falters and they are slaughtered for the nation's ground-beef industry." Not coincidentally, it goes on to explain, they produce massive amounts of manure far too concentrated to be anything but toxic to their immediate surroundings.
