Factory Farming: Misery for Animals

Factory Farming: Misery for Animals

This website will be useful for my project because it appeals to the reader’s emotional side and makes him/her care. A video is featured on the website stating, “if slaughterhouses had glass walls everyone would be vegetarian.” This video shows the gruesome reality of what actually happens to animals in factory farms. The makers of this website have obviously put a lot of work into it, giving them better credibility. It is true that the makers might be a little bias because they are already very passionate about this cause. However, a video is worth a lot more than words. One can’t watch a video like this and still be oblivious to what is going on.

A Closer Look at Animals on Factory Farms

This website will be useful for my project because it discusses the kind of cruelty that happens to different animals such as chicken, pigs, cattle, and turkeys. Not only does this website appeal to the reader’s emotional side, but it also uses a logical standpoint. A lot of what my project will appeal to is emotion, but it is also very important to have statistics as well. There are many links the reader can click on if they want to read more about a certain subject. These links have a good amount of work cited on them, so they are very credible.

Animal Cruelty Is the Price We Pay for Cheap Meat

This website is going to be very beneficial for my project because it has a lot of information varying from videos, to statistics, to storytelling. In the article, the author makes you think in the shoes of an animal on a factory farm. This approach is very smart because it makes people think, “what if that was me?” The author uses a variety of pathos, ethos, and logos, making the article very well-rounded.
