Woodard, W. (2010). Persian sheep, hawksbill turtles and vodsels: The ethics of eating in some contemporary narratives. In W.

One story is a depiction on the ethics of importing animals for slaughtering by presenting the functional story of Professor David Lurie. Professor Lurie forced himself to eat sheep meat just to accept another person’s cultural belief. The common way of drawing a conceptual line between human and animal is represented repeatedly. The essay indicates humans’ behavior towards nonhuman animals. I will explain how factory farmers treat their livestock compared to non-factory farmers. I plan on bringing forth humans moral responsibilities to nonhuman animals.

Marcus also argues that corporate farmers are treating their animals in a cruel and inhumane manner. He also writes that meat production consumes natural resources explaining that it takes at least ten pounds of grain to produce a pound of beef.
