National Post – John Robson: The need for humane treatment at the slaughterhouse

John Robson: The need for humane treatment at the slaughterhouse

Do I really have to state the case on the logic alone or should I use my more traditional method of being out there on ‘WHY’ it’s the right thing to do.

Now for the Alberta and other farmers dealing with animals for slaughter.

You should have seen this coming a long time ago. The cattle industry and ranching has been around since the days of the pony express and then some since the white man has set foot in North America.

In all honesty, I would invite a cattle rancher to experience a moment in time when a convict is put to death as part of a sentencing closure. See how humane that truly is. One where a person is truly conscious and aware of what is about to happen. Then translate to cattle and other animals who cannot speak and you don’t understand when lead up to the final spot where they’ll be slaughtered for human consumption.

If you still have a hard time trying to come to terms, then I’m willing to help show you the way.\

GUESS YOU DIDN’T LIKE MY LAST PARAGRAPH – EH SLICKS !!! ERASED BY A BAD CONNECTION AT TIM HORTONS.

PARAPHRASE WHAT I WAS TRYING TO SAY…

IF YOU ARE RUNNING A BUSINESS OF CATTLE RANCHING AND ANIMAL WAREHOUSE, THEN AS A BUSINESS YOU ARE IN AN UNEVIABLE POSITION OF RISK ASSESSMENT AND DUE DILIGENCE. WHERE THE OLD DAYS OF BEING ON A NAME BASIS WITH ‘BETSY’, NOW COW 1 THOUSAND AND NINE AND ‘KEN’ THE BULL TEN THOUSAND AND THIRTY IS HAVING PROBLEMS AND BEING TREATED BY A MEANS OF MAKING SURE IT’S GOING TO BE A PAYOFF INSTEAD OF A WRITE-OFF FOR SLAUGHTER. YOU REMEMBER THOSE DAYS RIGHT??? GRANDPA USED TO TALK ABOUT THEM ALL THE TIME ! NOW…. YOU HAVE TO PLEASE EVERYONE ELSE OTHER THEN GOOD OLD ‘BETSY’ AND ‘KEN’.

IT’S CALLED DEALING WITH THE 21st CENTURY. THE INTERNET OF EVERYTHING. SOCIAL MEDIA AND ENGINEERING WHICH FOR LACK OF A BETTER TERM AT THIS TIME MEANS YOU’RE GOING TO BE A TARGET IF YOU DON’T USE YOUR BRAINS FOR THE ETHICAL TREATMENT OF ANIMALS. JUST THE WAY IT IS NOW.

WELCOME TO THE MODERN WORLD OF DOING BUSINESS. PONY EXPRESS DAYS ARE OVER JUST LIKE THE MORSE CODE AND TELEGRAPH.
