Meet your meat
June 30th, 2007 posted by JB under Bits & Pieces

Quite possibly one of the most heart-wrenching things you’ll ever see — and it’s not even fiction — is this detailed video of how animals that end up on your platter are raised in absolutely incredible inhumane conditions.

“Ironically, the very first time in their lives these pigs see the sun and breathe fresh air, is the day they are loaded onto trucks to the slaughterhouse where they will die.”

Suddenly, my tuna meal with onions started to taste different. And to think that Cobain once suggested that it’s OK to eat fish…

So anong kakainin natin ngayon?living things din ang mga halaman di ba? anu yun, murder pa rin? Ang pinakamagandang solusyon dian e wag na tayong kumain, uminom na lang tayo ng tubig at manigas lahat sa gutom!!

Naisip ko tuloy: dito kasi sa UAE hindi consumable ang meat hanggat hindi sia classified as ‘Halal’ meaning ‘pwede.’ Conscious ang mga muslim sa mga kinakain nila. Yung mga kinakatay na hayop binababy muna nila at dinadasalan bago katayin. Also,reklamo kami ng reklamo rito na bakit kami kinakati sa chicken nila then my father, the poultry raiser, explained to me: ang manok daw bago katayin hindi na binibigyan ng vitamins 2 weeks before patayin. e dahil dito kailangan ‘halal’ ang meat, until the day na katayin ang niknok e binibigyan pa rin ng vitamins kaya ayun, pag kinain namin, nangangati kami. May mga de lata nga na galing pinas na pinagbawal rito. siguro kasi hindi nila kayang sumunod sa panuntunan ng ‘halal’ meat kaya sila na-ban sa UAE. At least kahit papano di kami magiguilty, hehe.un lang po!!

im not sure if all poultry and livestock growers treat their animals inhumanely, especially in the philippines. walang binabanggit si Zac Sarian (Manila Bulletin) tungkol dyan e. teka, i’ll send Zac an email.

but i think the larger the corporation is (espcially in the first world and in China (I once blogged about a really gigantic poultry farm in China on skirmisher, which slaughters 350,000 chickens every single day)), mas mataas ang pressure for efficiency and profitability, kaya wala ng “pagmamahal” na pwedeng isingit sa business. mabilisan na lang.

as an aside, i’ve begun raising high-pedigree free-range chickens just for the brown eggs (and just to annoy my “reklamador” guinea pigs). these chicks are so nice and tame, and have so much “personality,” that i’ve been wondering if i’d be able to have the stomach to slaughter them one day. ibang iba sila sa 45-day-old chickens (which the video also describes) that act like mutants and hog food like machines, kaya siguro many poultry farmers don’t respect these modern hybrids and treat them in ways that get PETA’s goat..

I don’t know. Suddenly, this info disturbed me. Since reading this post, I’ve been having trouble eating meat.

Damn those vegetarians.
