'Wild Horses II' - Artist Unknown


Manes and Tails Organization Focuses on Commercial Animal Abuse 

The following videos depict the lives of animals in Factory Farms in the United States.  The files are large, so DSL or Cable connections are recommended.  They are very graphic, and if you choose not to bear witness to this suffering, you can generally object by visiting the following web sites to learn whom to write and call regarding these matters.  Information about the 'Downed Animal Protection Act' and the 'Humane Slaughter Act' - passed in 1958 but never enforced, is found at the end of this page. Manes and Tails Organization is working to get the 'Humane Slaughter Act' implemented and the Downed Animals Act re-introduced and passed.  As evidenced by these videos produced by PETA and Compassion Over Killing, the 'Humane Slaughter Act' is currently a fantasy. The Manes and Tails Organization subscribes to many newsletters and alerts from PETA and Compassion Over Killing.  The Manes and Tails Organization is a member of the Humane Society of the United States.  Please click on the links below to find out how you can help make the lives of these animals better.
