We are just beginning to read about the impacts of the weather on farmed animals and, as expected, the news is not good.
Thousands of animals are dying in the freezing conditions. Many more are having to be dug out of the snow or are facing starvation.
This crisis shows even free-range farming leads to appalling suffering. The only way to ensure your food is truly cruelty free is to adopt a 100% plant-based diet.
