A calf that jumped onto the road from an animal transporter caused a stir on the German autobahn on December 9th. The highway had to be closed for around two hours, the police reported in a press release.
Several road users reported the unusual pedestrian to the police at around 5:30 p.m. The animal was seen shortly after the Magdeburg-Center junction on the road towards Hanover.
According to the first findings of the police, the lower part of the loading flap of an animal transporter opened during the journey and the calf jumped onto the road.
According to the officials, the following vehicles were able to evade in time so that there was no traffic accident. It is still unclear whether there was a technical defect on the loading flap.
And I mean…” If it was on the way to the slaughterhouse, then shooting was the more humane option”, we read in the comments.
Of course the calf was on its way to the slaughterhouse, but that’s not what this is about!
We humans will also die at some point, but nobody has the right to shoot us because of it if they want to.
The calf has been denied the right to a chance in life just because we, human animals, take the right to act with one and the same fascist principle, namely: to decide about the life of other animals when and how it suits us.
That’s what this is about!
