Doreen the Downer by Mark Fiore
By this point, everybody’s seen the video of downer cows being abused by Hallmark/Westland Meat Packing employees. And everyone’s read about the massive beef recall that the HSUS video prompted. The upshot is that nonveg*ns everywhere are finally getting to see what we already knew happens to scores of animals in this country every day.
Well, if any of your omni friends won’t watch the video because it’s too depressing, they have another option: Doreen the Downer by animator Mark Fiore. It does for beef production what The Meatrix did for factory farming, except it’s short and whimsical, like so many of those misguided “educational” videos from the ’50s and ’60s.
