WAV Comment: When you are in your 50’s and have been involved as an activist for a very large part of your life; you get to see and witness a lot of things. But this has struck me as one of the most barbaric things that I have come across for a while – On April 15, 2020, four weeks after the first American city was locked down in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, a gruesome experiment was performed. The experimenters filled a trailer, specially fitted with heaters capable of bringing the temperatures inside to lethal levels, with pigs, and turned the heat on. The experimenters wanted to know how long it would take for the pigs to die. The answer, for some of them, was over an hour.
For the animals themselves, it resulted in what the industry deceptively calls ‘euthanasia,’ but that is, in fact, in many cases an excruciatingly slow and torturous death.
Pigs are known as the ‘horizontal man’; really because all their internal organs are located in the same place as the body of a vertical human. Are pigs less intelligent ? – certainly not after some folk that I have met in my years – so what then is the difference in killing a trailer load of pigs to that of a trailer load of humans ?
But they are just pigs I hear some say; With IQ equal to a Fifth Grader, Are Pigs Smarter Than We Think? | Gaia
I will not go on – instead, I suggest you read the following and decide for yourself if these abuses of sentient beings; the horizontal man; has been, is now, and will ever acceptable by the so-called civilized society of the humankind. No, it is animal abuse, pure and simple. There are and can never be excuses such as Covid for the suffering of intelligent beings.
Comment by Stacey:
As long as people consume animals and their secretions, biologically intended for infants of the species making the breastmilk (like cows for calves, not like cows for aging humans with teeth, even human infants cannot drink cow’s milk; get weaned, people, it’s embarrassing and violently abusive), then you don’t care about animals, it’s beyond nauseating to listen to people stumble around their euphemisms desperately searching for ANY word that provides them forgiveness and only landing on, “It’s illegal to be cruel to animals/animals are killed painlessly/when it’s done humanely/…/…/…” An endless rambling litany of preposterous excuses that benefits only the species – humans – that kill non-human animals.
Killing an unwilling being is inherently, violently abusive and cruel, dancing cows in party hats going to school notwithstanding. Taking a life that is not yours to take, is inherently, violently abusive and cruel. Subjecting another being to control, confinement, violation, and deliberate butchering is inherently, violently abusive and cruel.
The thing is, I don’t get paid anything to advocate on behalf of animals. Me asking you to not cause animals harm brings me zero profit. Conversely, humans are so willfully ignorant and complicit, believing the anag charlatans who rely on anthropomorphized English-singing cows to sell you milk you don’t need but that causes the violent death of all the animals including the infants who actually DO need the milk AND their mothers but who are stolen and butchered at a young age because males are unprofitable……you’ll give THOSE PEOPLE money, the ones with the actual “agenda”.
You don’t kill those you care for about, and even if you don’t care about any animals, you still have no right or legitimate reason to kill them.
It’s like, you don’t consume animals violently, fearfully, painfully humanely-butchered because you honestly believe that NOT consuming animals is INhumane.
When did you lose your decency and empathy? SL
