Response to Cold War Spook (Reply #35)

Mon Jan 7, 2019, 02:55 PM

62. Before switching majors I studied meat production.

No matter the method of killing, most of the animals are so worked up getting transported to the slaughterhouse, being forced down a chute with electric prods and smelling all the blood it is analogous to a deer being chased by dogs. Which is one of the reasons, but hardly the only one, that beef is aged before consumption.

I am a hunter. I still hunt out of stands. One minute the deer is walking along doing deer things, the next he or she is dead. If I canít insure a one shot kill to the heart and lungs I do not shoot. This year I killed 2 deer. Used 2 bullets. Even my vegan friends consider this the most humane way to get meat.

I try to but all my store bought meat from small local producers. But have no illusions about what the animals go through. Especially pigs. They are smart and seem to know what is coming unless kill individually on the farm. Of course, pork is not relevant to the OP.
