I spent a night in the guest house at the Catskill Animal Sanctuary, and early the next morning, joined free-roaming pigs, sheep, goats and cows in a stroll about the grounds. Formerly the site of a racetrack, various barns house lucky refugees from our taken-for-granted eating habits. Day visitors commune with the residents and get the lowdown on how cruel and lousy agribusiness is; for land use, for the earth, and most of all for farmed animals.
