Borrowed Prey
"When I put myself in a cow's place, I really have to be that cow and not just a person in a cow costume." - Temple Grandin

Borrowed Prey is a provocative investigation into our relationship to the animals most of us consume. Bringing together 4 strands of research: hunting, butchering, and slaughtering of animals, plus the work of animal behavior scientist and autistic Dr. Temple Grandin, Carrie Ahern attempts to illuminate more about the true "farm to table" process and our human capacity for empathy.
