These so called animal activists need to go find something better to do with their lives, maybe go get a job or something! Can’t stand these people! Most likely the same people that were protesting at rib fest! Losers

I don’t protest against vegetarians because I got a life and better things to do with my time! I’m assuming your one of those non meat eaters sitting on welfare protesting at rib fest! I’m going to eat a medium rare steak just for you!

Beef, chickens, turkeys... pigs were the ones that made loudest noise. All one had to do is grab ahold & they would squeal.
That squeal happen no matter why we were having to handle them.

They're saying in pig language get your murdering mitts off me bubba. Pigs are smarter than most give them credit.

That is what they do. If these goofs ever spent a time on a farm they would know that.
Pigs make that sound when they are happy, hungry, playing, fighting with each other.
Frack.

When they're in the slaughterhouse do they squeal cuz they're happy or they're scared?

Sigh. The sound they are making is not indicative of anything other than they are pigs. Go to any pig farm and you would know. They squeal and scream wherever they are. That is the sound pigs make.

From the article:

The group claims the slaughtering process is slow and painful.

"These pigs are forced to breathe in CO2 gas ... until they are unconscious, but their hearts are still beating. They don’t die until their throats are slit and they bleed out," the group posted on its Facebook page.

Castanet has reached out to Rocana for clarification on the slaughtering process.

"We want to shed light to the truths behind these oppressive industries – to show consumers what they’re truly paying for when they choose to eat animal products," Soranno added.


I'd like to know, are these protestors willing to provide a suggestion for a more humane way of killing the animals. If so, will they then cease their protests? Or are they just another bunch of disruptive vigilantes preaching their radical ideologies to the masses?

Slaughterhouses are for profit, so they often choose the least expensive method of raising and killing the animals, rather than treating the animals with respect and humanity.

By raising awareness, the general population can be more aware and start to make better decisions or get involved.

We need to learn to treat every living creature with respect.


I agree,

the detachment from where any meat product comes from is amazing. It should be mandatory that everyone as meat eaters spend some time on a farm and actually kill, clean and butcher an animal in their lifetime (Humans these days are way too ignorant about the realities of life). I also say support local farmers who take the time to respect the animal and provide a quick death, they make the best products.


I disagree about the "humans these days" thoughts......unless you are going back to caveman days. Most western society has had differentiation of tasks for a very long time. Just because some of us have closer ties to an agrarian or highly rural background, it doesn’t mean that most do. Once you step away from that, whether it be the previous generation or dozens of generations back, farmers and butchers would handle that, not the general population, with the exception of those who specifically sought it out.

And yes, I have personally killed and cleaned everything from small to really large mammals so it isn’t necessary to assume I am some sort of snowflake who has never seen a drop of blood. I just don’t see that there is any recent detachment from where meat comes from. Nor do I think that meat eaters need to accomplish a mandatory kill of an animal to somehow prove their worthiness to eat meat any more than I expect a homeowner to swing a hammer and build something before occupying a home or a vegan to grow their own veggies before eating them. There tends to be a natural detachment from many things outside of what ones own area of expertise is, and that has been in place for a very long time.

I totally agree with supporting local farmers whether it be for meats or any other agricultural product.

Pigs are like other mammals who vocalize in response to what's in their environment. They vocalize to express basic emotions like happiness, fear or discomfort. Point being is they feel and no sentient animal deserves the torture of electrocution, suffocation and being cut open while still alive. That's barbaric and blind to suffering of the animal. They at the very least deserve a decent life and a humane death.

What is considered a humane death and if that is then used to kill the animals, will the protesters cease?

Just curious if you've ever been around pigs. Ever tried to catch one? Or pick up one?
Truths can be backed up by facts - do you have any?

Sounds like a greased pig chase from 1940's. Maybe we should try it again.

But no, protestors would be on the spot.
