Truthdig commentary:

An estimated 798 million people worldwide suffer from chronic hunger. Twenty percent of all children worldwide suffer from protein-energy malnutrition. But, more important, kibble and bits may be depriving your dog or cat of necessary fat and nutrients. Salon exposes the organic, sustainable, antibiotic- and steroid-free underbelly of the growing Raw Pet Foods Movement. Apocalyse soon.

Salon: On a recent winter afternoon in San Francisco’s well-heeled Marina district, there’s blood on the sidewalk.

Spilling out of the garage of a neat yellow house, dozens of cardboard boxes overflow with a smorgasbord of frozen raw meat and bones sealed in plastic bags. There’s pork and beef from Niman Ranch, and whole quail from Cavendish Game Birds of Vermont. It looks like an upscale butcher has been pillaged by a modern-day Robin Hood, who left the spoils for the taking: lamb, chicken, goat, turkey, rabbit, buffalo — a veritable Noah’s Ark of high-quality protein plunder. | story
