The Dairy Industry's 'Dark Secret'-The Killing of Pregnant Cows and their Calves
Dairy cows are the hardest worked farm animals and mothers. The only reason they produce milk is to feed their calves; but we taketheir milk away and deprive their calves of the love and affection, security that is their right as living, breathing creatures. They suffer abuse, neglect, illness. Separated from all the calves they give birth to. Dairy cows living for up to 25 years. But because of their hard lives, they are worn out by 4 or 5 years old. They will be sent to slaughter, where many cannot even stand up anymore. And there they get a new name: DOWNERS.
They are filled with fear, as they smell the blood of others who have had their throats cut, and struggle to escape when they hear the cries of the other cows. An absolute gruelling life and gruelling death, all inhumane and cruel.
Animals from all over the world end up here. Sheep and cattle are exported live from countries in the European Union such as France, the Czech Republic and Spain (where they have legal protection). Investigations Unit visited Beirut Public Slaughterhouse, and what they found was unimaginable!
"The slaughterhouse is chaos. Everything is coated in a layer of blood, faeces and body parts. The slaughter area is heaving with people, live animals and slaughtered bodies. The sounds and smells are overwhelming.
Cows are left suspended fully-conscious by one leg for long periods of time, their faces resting in pools of other animals' blood. watch animals being slaughtered all around them Treated as mere milk-producing machines, cows exploited and abused for their milk endure lives of near constant misery and deprivation."
The heart of the bovine fetus is functioning during the bleeding process via cardiac puncture. The fetal heart must be beating in order to obtain an adequate harvest of fetalbovine serum (FBS) production by means of cardiac puncture. Blood coagulates immediately upon death.
"For all practical purposes, a fetal calf's heart must be beating to obtain an adequate harvest for fetal calf serum production."
The fact that the fetal heart is functioning during the cardiac puncture, indicates the fetus is still alive then and therefore may experience pain because of the needle inserted into its heart, and because of terminal bleeding. As the fetus is never anaesthetised or stunned prior to the performance of a cardiac puncture for FBS harvest, it can be stated that FBS harvest by means of the method described above, represents an ethical problem.
Notice in the background that the mother cow is still periodically kicking while bleeding out, as the calf who was brutally cut from her womb and laid out on the floor just feet away struggles and cries out for his mother. Notice how their blood--so much blood--pools together after his throat is slit too, as they die horrific deaths together, both mother and baby helpless witness to the other's suffering and violent death (thank you to all those, who shared their thoughts, music, pictures with me to be able to create this petition!)
