Many people think that by eating “humane” meat they’re doing the right thing. Sadly, they’re being deceived.
For starters, no government agency actually regulates the use of the word “humane” on animal products. Yes, you read that right. It’s left up to the meat producers to decide what’s “humane” and what isn’t.
So what exactly does “humane” mean to the factory farming industry? Just look at this 2015 Mercy For Animals undercover investigation at a Foster Farms facility that was certified “humane” by the American Humane Association. It’s truly a horror show.
What’s more, animals at all farms, even so-called humane ones, are routinely mutilated without painkillers, ripped away from their mothers soon after birth, and violently slaughtered.
Animals want to live just like we do. We’ve all seen the countless videos of frightened animals running for their lives from transport trucks and slaughterhouses. They’re devastating. The question must be asked: How can unnecessary killing ever be humane? The truth is that it can’t.
Pigs, cows, chickens, and other farmed animals are just as sensitive and intelligent as the dogs and cats we love at home. They should be treated with the same respect and consideration, not continually abused and brutally slaughtered.
While labels like “certified humane” may make you feel better, the reality is that the meat industry slaps these on to hide the truth.
Feel lied to? Join the millions of people ditching animal products and switching to the only truly humane diet, veganism.
