While French consumers fall for “humane meat,” slaughterhouses continue to torture

I don’t understand how consumers still fall for the humane meat trick. I really don’t. There is a wealth of information on the topic available, and simply just sitting down for a nice, long, think should prevent this.

It hasn’t, of course. What I’m asking for within the context of an animal eating society maybe even sounds a little naive. We’re all just tired of telling the same damn story to unwilling listeners.

Yesterday, French news source The Local covered a story of “inhumane” activities happening within a “humane” meat source. It goes without saying that even the kindest backyard murder is still murder, but I digress; a slaughterhouse in Southern France that was touting itself as being humane has now become the source of an undercover video with grisly findings.

L214, an animal rights group, posted a video that contained acts such as one worker punching and hitting sheep, while another shocks a sheep with electricity to watch and see what it does. Cows are shown dangling and struggling, and pigs are seizing in the video. The kind of slaughterhouse where this is happening, I will remind you, is referred to as a humane slaughterhouse.

This is what happens when instead of pushing for animal liberation, activists push the government for regulation. Lies. Just like Whole Foods before it, this slaughterhouse has been profiting off the silliness of consumers, and happily getting away with it.

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
