Petition Tag - slaughterhouses
Lou and Bill are two oxen that used to work on the college farm for ten years before Lou got injured and is now unable to work. Bill is unable to pull the plough on his own.
Although they now have other oxen as well, and an animal sanctuary has agreed to take them, the college are now planning on slaughtering these two oxen.
If this happens, their deaths may involve paralysis by bolt gun or electric tongs followed brutal killings involving cuts to their throats. Since the college plans on serving their meat on the site, they may end up as half-eaten meals thrown away in the college bins.
I need 500,000 signatures to get our government to listen. I need you to listen.
Every year 3.5 billion animals are abused then slaughtered at slaughterhouses. Every cow is kept constantly pregnant to produce milk. The cow is gentically manipulated to produce ten times the amount of milk her calf needs. This puts her in unbearable pain. I wish to make genetic manipulation to be made illegal.
I wish to make cutting parts of animals off before they are dead illegal. I wish to create a law that states all slaughterhouses must have CCTV 24/7 and yearly inspections. This is to make slaughterhouses more humane before they are killed.
Raising animals for food is one of the largest sources of carbon dioxide and the single largest source of both methane and nitrous oxide emissions. Removing animal flesh from the food chain may be the only realistic, viable, manageable, enforceable, and effective government solution needed to slow global warming, and to ultimately play the largest role in stopping it.
The human race cannot run away from or escape the consequences of global warming!!
Horse slaughter is the practice of slaughtering horses for meat. These animals come from auctions, private sellers, and from wild herds. Sometimes these horses are sick and injured but they can also be for sale by their owners.
Most are brought to the slaughterhouses by contract buyers who collect horses from all across the country, also known as kill buyers. Horses that are killed for reasons other than human consumption go to the renderer's(US) or the knacker's yard (UK) to make food for pets, carnivorous animals in zoos, etc.
In most countries where horses are slaughtered for food, they are processed in a similar fashion to cattle, i.e., in large-scale factory slaughterhouses (abattoirs). The animals are rendered unconscious by being shot in the brain with a metal rod, using a captive bolt stunner - pneumatically or cartridge driven. In the UK a captive bolt is rarely used. They are usually killed using a free bullet from a bell gun.
The skull is too hard to use a captive bolt the bell end to the gun prevents the bullet ricocheting and injuring the slaughterman. They are then killed by being exsanguinated ("bled out") by severing the jugular vein or carotid artery while suspended by the rear leg by a heavy chain shackle.
Every day, thousands of chickens are tortured and slaughtered, just so people can eat at Kentucky Fried Chicken.
These chickens are stuffed in tiny cages, and given chemicals that make them grow so huge that they can't even walk. Then they are strapped upside down and put it in an acid bath that immobilizes them. Most avoid that in their struggle. Then their necks and wings are broken, and all this time they can feel it. Then their heads are cut off.
And when they're not going through that, they are being beaten by workers. The workers stomp them and throw them against walls. All out of boredom. This is wrong. Help stop it.
Chickens in slaughterhouses are put in cages at an angle so their legs and feet grow crooked. They are squashed up against more chickens that are dirty, carry Disease and some are even dead.
Yes, this is the chicken that goes in your freezer. BAN SLAUGHTERHOUSES!
