      [Oklahoma Daily - opinion]

      April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. There are many ways
      students can help prevent animal abuse in everyday eating. Although moral
      outrage is often met in response to reports and pictures of abused cats and
      dogs, little outrage is met in regards to the mistreatment of chickens,
      pigs and cows.

      Most people would never intentionally abuse a cat or dog; however, many
      people do indirectly fund the mistreatment of animals as practiced on
      factory farms by purchasing meat.

      Within the past two years, undercover animal rights activists have taped
      the mistreatment of animals on factory farms. The videos reveal the burning
      of horses´┐Ż ankles, the use of piglets to play catch and burning the beaks
      of young chicks. In an attempt to thwart further documentation, 12
      legislatures have proposed or enacted bills that would make it illegal to
      tape animal abuse on factory farms.

      In spirit of these findings, the following is a compiled list of five
      reasons students should adopt a vegetarian diet.
