Beware The Killer Mouse Droppings…

Like us on Facebook:

As a society we have a warped perception of what is gross.

If you kill sentient beings, butcher their carcasses and sell their decomposing flesh, general consensus would have you believe that this is as normal as baking a loaf of bread. Add in a few mouse droppings, however – along with a bloody door handle – and suddenly things are considered to be unacceptable. Everything up to mouse droppings – including raising animals for food, subjecting them to torture and death and harvesting their body parts – is just grand, but we can’t be doing with those pesky droppings making everything so gross…

A butchers shop in Liverpool, UK, was shut down after “inspectors” found “rodent smear marks” on skirting boards, mouse droppings around the premises and blood on the door handle of the walk-in-fridge. Apparently, sentient beings are not supposed to bleed when you sever their muscle tissues. I mean, how inconvenient for us, and how inconsiderate of the animals. Not only do we poor humans have to deal with mouse droppings, but when we unjustifiably murder animals for our unnecessary purposes, we have to deal with blood as well? How gross, how inconsiderate of them to bleed.

Shafeq Nasser Al-Suraimi, owner of the food store and butchers was fined £3,600 and made to pay £4,017.34 in costs to the council with a £40 victim surcharge – a total of £7,657.34. Our society accepts rights violations of the most vulnerable beings on the planet as being legitimate, but blood? Poop? No, no, no… that’s clearly crossing a line worthy of punitive damages.
