I’m not what some would call a bleeding heart activist, but I suppose it’s a great thing we have them because the animal cruelty really needs to stop. Whether you are a vegetarian or not – beating and abusing animals is NOT acceptable. (And neither is beating and abusing each other by the way, and beating and abusing animals is often a precursor to torture and murders of humans. Another subject for another day though …)
Anyway, what this brought this all to my mind was this horrific video that I just watched. Obviously, I cannot vouch for this particular videos authenticity, but we all know this stuff is true and there are lots of cruelty cases out there, and if you do a little research on this particular case you will see that Tyson claims to have cut ties to a particular pig farm involving the exact stuff in this video. So my guess is this video is authentic.
Tyson is claiming to care about not mistreating the animals. They stated in the article that they were immediately terminating the contract with this farmer and will take possession of the animals remaining on the farm.
You know … God put us here and gave us dominion over the animals, but he created them just as he created us and loves them as well. He gave us a great responsibility with this earth, and with our lives.
WE are blowing it!
