Where Does Your Meat Come From?

People have different view points on eating meat and this blog is not meant to stir up debate on that subject. HOWEVER, I did run across a disturbing article on PETA’s website that I would like to share. It is in regards to the way farm factory animals are treated and the horrific comparison it makes to the Greyhound Bus passenger that was brutally murdered. You know, we as humans do have the capabilities of ending this senseless suffering.

Warning, the content of this article is graphic.

As though it were a gruesome scene in a horror movie, a Canadian Greyhound passenger found himself in the hands of a highly disturbed man this past weekend while en route from Edmonton to Winnipeg. Passengers riding the bus reported that Vince Weiguang Li jumped on top of 22-year-old Tim McLean and began stabbing him repeatedly before cutting off his head and allegedly consuming some of his flesh. Parts of McLean’s ear, nose, and mouth were found in Li’s pocket.

This tragic incident will certainly leave scars on the minds of the other passengers and the victim’s family and friends. While it isn’t every day that a human is violently attacked and eaten by another human, it’s worth noting that it is the norm for many people not to give any thought to the fact that restaurants are serving flesh that comes from innocents who were minding their own business before someone came after them with a knife. How amazingly and conveniently compartmentalized the human mind is…

To stress this very point, PETA will be running an ad in the Portage Daily Graphic comparing the similarities between this gruesome bus butchering and the acts of cruelty and killing performed every day by the meat industry.

The horror that cows, chickens, and pigs face on factory farms goes on for a long time too. Chickens are violently tossed into cages with dozens of other birds and forced to live amid their own waste. Baby pigs have their testicles ripped out without any painkillers. And male calves are starved and chained inside tiny stalls until their flesh becomes soft and milky white before being slaughtered for someone’s veal dinner.PETA is running the ad to make people rethink the proposition that it is, rightly so, a criminal act to kill and eat our own kind but that it’s “OK” to kill every other species but our own and eat them.

    It depends on where you are.

    Here, veal is any calf that is still fed on milk, many of them are 200kg+ calves that have simply not yet been weaned, still wandering aroundgrassy fields with their dam. Here, we don’t castrate pigs at all.
    And I’ve seen the slaughter process first hand. Even in halal slaughter of lamb the sheep do not struggle or cry before being stunned. I can eat the lamb happily because I know how it’s raised and how it is slaughtered.
    If it bothers you, look into it locally. It’s not always as bad as some groups make out, and the technology advances all the time, especially in stunning techniques.

    Exactly my point!That was the reason I quit eating meat when I was a child.

    @Ferox,
    I am happy that you look into how slaughtering takes place.But,the sad thing is that not even 25% slaughtering follows the process you state.

    @Site owner,
    I really like this site.Don’t you have feedburner feeds?I think a lot of people will like to subscribe to your feeds.

    I’m not sure what the answer is on how to feed the population while treating animals humanely but I know it’s only right that we are talking and debating it. Another good article, I have added this site to my favourites.

    I love that ad!

    I’m from Winnipeg Manitoba. It’s one of the worst places to live when you are pro animal rights! I can hardly find anything that is cruelty free and I’m one of the few vegans. Most people here are mean losers.If I could move I would in a second!

  8. Animal Rights Advocate Says:

    It doesn’t matter if they are threated violent or inhumane. What matters is that they are killed. Slaughter is slaughter, it doesn’t matter how it has been done.

  9. George Hahn Says:

    I initially was creating blogs with just adsense and some plr articles but that doesn’t seem to make much money. I’d be interested in some article writing – do you outsource?

  10. Tiadora Anderson Says:

    I totally agree. People don’t give a second thought as to where their “meat”, dead animal comes from.

  11. Me Says:

    THANK YOU! I just wish other’s could see it this way…

  12. george Says:

    I hate anyone who treats any animal badly – I even tried to become a vegetarian because of it. I failed and went back to eating chicken and fish, but I now keep my own chickens, at least I know that they are being treated well.
    thanks for the article
