In Reference to: Red Letter Day for Animal Rights
I agree with we ought to go vegan, and indeed there are standard husbandry practices that result in both acute and chronic pain, but what is the source for these two statements:
- "Slaughterhouse workers attest that many animals on the assembly line are still conscious and blinking while the cutters are dismembering them.
- ``They die,'' one worker affirmed, ``piece by piece''. Likewise, many chickens and pigs enter the scalding tanks fully conscious."
Any evidence of this happening in Australia?
