Domino’s made a risky decision when they decided to ignore the standards for humane treatment of animals that the Humane Society of the United States was attempting to force onto many franchises including Wendy’s, McDonalds, etc. Now when I say “ignore” I do not mean that they decided that the meat producers that they chose to buy from were deliberately abusing animals. That is not the case whatsoever. Domino’s made a choice that gained almost everyone in the agriculture world’s approval and upmost respect but that also ticked off the rest of the population. They chose to seek out the experts in animal welfare, health, and behavior before just signing onto to HSUS’s bandwagon.
The HSUS mindset is to completely rid the world of meat production and they advertise this theory in a multitude of ways. When I say the word “radical”, I think of PETA’s tactics to get their scheme across. However, when I think of HSUS’s game plan the word “manipulative” is the first one that comes to mind.
