LETTER: Spare a thought for the chicks

As the shops are filled with images of cute, fluffy chicks, Animal Aid is highlighting the terrible suffering that these animals endure. Male chicks are considered useless by the egg industry, and millions of them every year are gassed or shredded alive. Spare chicks and other animals from suffering by adopting a cruelty-free diet. Readers can order a FREE Go Vegan pack by visiting www.animalaid.org.uk/go/veganpack or telephoning 01732 364 546.
