Full Circle, Back to the Future

By Susan Hargreaves Author-Activist-Educator of  


Who says you can’t go back? I did in West Yorkshire on my 63rd birthday. I returned to the chicken hatchery I was taken to at nine years old. The original visit shocked me to my core, seeing all of the male chicks being killed as soon as they hatch – an everyday routine occurrence in the egg hatchery business.

This is the Happy Herald and here is the happy news… the cruelty-toanimals agriculture business there is all gone. Yes, not even a single feather is left behind. The former hatchery buildings now house local, crueltyfree businesses!

I was able to return to my past, to a place which previously caused me shock and dismay, to witness the evidence of an evolving world.

I was dressed as Veganza Animal Hero, the character from my book of the same name, and I engaged children from the school onsite with the empowering story of animal heroes.

Full circle and back to the future.
