PETA National Tour Stops at OSU

CORVALLIS, Ore. — Oregon State University students got a graphic look at how some animals are raised for food.

PETA’s National College Tour made a stop by campus and set up a display. It included a gestation crate that houses pregnant pigs for their whole lives. There was also a battery cage, where PETA says up to seven laying hens are crammed in.

“Seeing these images, it goes through your mind what these animals go through every day, and it definitely makes an impact on your soul,” said freshman Amber Newell.

At the end of the factory farm, students sat in crates and watched a documentary about factory-farmed animals.

Organizers also passed out samples of vegan food, along with tips for adopting a vegan diet.
