I see there's an attempt to increase production of rose veal. Countryfile on Sunday (BBC1) had a report about dairy farmers who now send surplus male calves to become veal calves. They are normally shot at birth because they are 'waste products'. That's what they are called. They aren't needed for breeding and don't produce milk. They are waste products.
These heartless creatures are rubbing their hands with glee at the thought of extra profits and think nothing about the life the calves would lead. The conditions for veal calves are better than those that used to prevail when they were kept in crates and deliberately made anaemic but they are still cruel - as all animal farming is.
Instead of a few thousand calves being born and killed each year, this could result in many more being bred, kept alive in unnatural conditions for a few months and then slaughtered. More will be bred because they will no longer be waste products.
Watch out for scum like those cooks oliver and ramsay promoting the meat of these helpless victims.
I believe that Oliver bought some male chicks a few years ago and then gassed them on his television programme, I didn't see it so can't be sure. The scum could have shown a film of some chicks being gassed if he wanted to 'educate' his fans but, no, he rescued some chicks from certain death and then killed them. A few years earlier, in his series about Italian cookery, he slaughtered a young sheep on an Italian farm without prior stunning. This was seen by millions of people on television. It is against EU law but nothing was done. There was no attempt to prosecute the odious creature despite some of us writing to all sorts of Italian, EU and British governement departments.
I believe there was some demonstration at his London restaurant recently. I hope he goes out of business.

Vegan: I'm on an antinatilist group and only found out about her on that. Had no idea who she was before as never heard of her.

cybernaut: Well, it can be a little hard for me to come here sometimes because of how negative things can get here. I realize there's much to be negative about, but it's still hard for me all the same.
