  Your Comments: Animal cruelty?
Updated 11 December 2001, 19.34
What do you think about the treatment of animals used for food?
The RSPCA claims that some chickens suffer terrible conditions before being sold as meat.

Should humans eat animals?

Do you think animals deserve the right to a happy life before we eat them?

Or do you think that animals don't have the same feelings as people, therefore it doesn't really matter how we look after them?

Here's what lots of you have been saying.
