The Cost Of A Lamb

Travelling back from Llangollen, Doreen and I were overcome with joy as we beheld new born lambs frolicking in the fields. What a blessing they were to behold. Indeed, children were looking on with glee. But then, hardly had we driven a further mile than did we come across a notice at the side of the country lane that read: ‘half a lamb for eighteen pounds’. Yes, such is the moral schizophrenia that contaminates society to the extent that mums can join their children in looking at lambs playing in the fields and can then go home and tuck in to a lamb for dinner.. One might be led to overlook such evil if no other food supply were available but how can one excuse it when far healthier food is available which does not require the taking of innocent life? Very subtly the producers of meat disguise the origin of the meat that they sell. Sheep is mutton, pig is pork, and the slaughterhouses are called abattoirs; while animal Treblinkas are referred to as agricultural breeding units. Yes, and an up and growing public – a high percent of whom have university degrees! – lack either the wisdom or compassion to know the deception involved. As has been well and truly said: ‘where ignorance is bliss it is folly to be wise’. How very convenient and how abominably thoughtless!
