Take Veg Pledge and help animals

LAST year, a record 989 million animals were slaughtered for food in the UK, according to government figures.

Rather than wandering around an idyllic rural farmyard, the vast majority of these animals were reared in barren, crowded factory farms and lived painfully short lives.

For the sake of these animals, I urge all your readers to give up meat for National Veggie Month this March, by signing up for Animal Aid's Big Veg Pledge at www.veggiemonth.com.
