Animal cruelty on Maryland's poultry farms [Letter]

On reading Wenonah Hauter and Julie Gouldener's commentary on Maryland's poultry industry, I kept waiting for them to cite the hideous cruelty to animals that is inherent in confined animal feeding operations ("Why is O'Malley giving poultry polluters a free ride?" March 7). But it never came.

I do not understand how one can write an article about the polluting agribusiness farms and leave out that part. Billions of chickens have lived torturous lives of misery on Maryland's Eastern Shore "farms," and at least mentioning that in the article would have garnered the writers a lot more support.
