USDA: Ban the use
of the term 'humane'

A DxE investigation of a supposedly "humane," family-run goat farm found diseased and dying animals. For these reasons, we are asking the USDA to prohibit the use of the term “humane” and force farms and retailers to tell the truth about how animals raised for food are treated.

The Truth


The Truth


Lenny was being raised for meat on a "humane," family-farm. But Lenny's supposed "family" never gave him the care he needed, which is why DxE activists found him collapsed in a pile of his own filth. 


Exposure

The open shed in which the goats lived left them exposed to the cold and to predators. 
 

separation

The baby goats living on this farm had already lost their parents when the older goats were sent to slaughter.

Disease

Even at this family-farm, sick animals were left to languish without medical care.

Rescued


Rescued


Lenny saw his family members disappear one by one as they grew big enough to be sent to slaughter. But he never had to face that day himself.


unable to stand

In the car, Lenny was lethargic and when he tried to stand, his weak legs buckled beneath him.

A dangerous prognosis

DxE activists rushed Lenny to veterinary care, where he was diagnosed with coccidia, a parasite that was eating his insides.

Tender love and care

With the proper care and medical treatment, Lenny recovered at his new home: an animal sanctuary.

Lenny's New Life


Lenny's New Life


Today, Lenny and his friends run around and play together freely.

Goats love to explore

Goats like Lenny have the same inquisitve nature as the dogs in our homes. Today Lenny goes for long walks with his family, sniffing, chewing, and exploring the world around him.

Goats love attention

Lenny loves to be pet and showered with affection by his family, and he makes his own affection known by jumping up and following his family.

Goats love to be Free

Goats in the wild spend their days grazing and climbing mountains, a natural behavior denied to goats raised on farms.
