This is Just Plain Wrong
Posted January 23, 2007 by Marta Holmberg
So this video was just brought to our attention, and I have to say that it’s one of the most disturbing videos I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen a lot of them). If I weren’t already a vegan, this would turn me. Be warned, the video is extremely graphic.
The meat industry couldn’t care less about animals. This “downed” cow (meaning a cow whoâ€™s too sick or injured to walk) was thrown into the meat shredder alive. And according to a 2006 report by the USDA inspector general, USDA slaughterhouse inspectors are still allowing many downed cows – who may be infected with mad cow disease – into the human food supply illegally. Not only is this disgusting, itâ€™s fucked up and wrong.
Don’t let horrible things like this happen. You can make a difference. Click here to take the Veg Pledge.
