Excellent link on the horrors of the meat processing plant.Looks like the animal stun procedure's not very effective.
So much for the 1 strike 1 kill point of view. Some how I would expect a lot of the Uechi comunity to bounce back after a good shot to the head with a 1/4 inch bolt. I would also expect to get kicked by them as well.
Death is never pretty, animals should not suffer . Obviously the killing methods used in these factory lines are not effective.
Factory defects ,quality vs quantity issues are a byproduct of the factory method. Ford has recalls for exploding Pinto's. Baby cribbs are recalled for infant mortality issues. Canned goods are recalled because of botulism. The factory method does have it's failures. But it's effective in producing mass quantities and keeping consumer prices down.
Nothing you can do? If you don't like the suffering get active,sellers wish to please the consumer,let them know.
When criminals are executed in various countries they also linger for a while,electrocution,beheading,hanging and leathal injection all take some time. There probably is a faster way of dispatching these animals.(and the ones we eat too
An animal that suffers also makes for poor quality grub. The massive amounts of hormones released in the meat of a struggling or suffering animal are rather bitter to the palate and I believe they may also increase spoilage.
Hunted meat also suffers Ian. The shot does not always kill. The window for a kill is sometimes short and at along distance. The game is some times wounded and tracked for many miles. This is unfortunate as the animal suffers and the meat is not as pleasant on the plate.
Enjoy that steak,a good feed of red meat now and then will not kill you.
