Pandemic – Millions of US Farm Animals Culled by Suffocation, Drowning & Shooting

by | Aug 23, 2020 | Pandemic, World News | 1 comment

The knock on effects from this Pandemic on society are immense, it was always going to be. One of the first to be impacted was supply chains. As transport systems shut down near the beginning of the pandemic, the meat industry was left with an excess in produce.

This excess is unique though, it’s live animals and the only way out for many farmers was through mass culling of their animals, often in the cheapest possible way.

More than 10 million hens are estimated to have been culled due to Covid-19 related slaughterhouse shutdowns. The majority will have been smothered by a water-based foam, similar to fire-fighting foam, a method that animal welfare groups are calling “inhumane”.

The pork industry has warned that more than 10 million pigs could be culled by September for the same reason. The techniques used to cull pigs include gassing, shooting, anaesthetic overdose, or “blunt force trauma”. – The Guardian[1]

The real implications of the actions taken globally by this pandemic are still not fully understood by many, even though I’ve laid them out since the beginning. People cannot seem to see through the possible human death caused by the virus itself.

The vulnerable and the elderly were always going to die, if not yesterday, then next week or next month. But if the measures taken simply postpone a few deaths by a few months in exchange for potentially millions more down the road, then what’s the point?

Yes, I know, this article is about animals being killed, not humans. But this is just one small part of a greater catastrophe unfolding. A catastrophe many of us have clearly seen from the beginning.

While millions of people sink into poverty, millions of tonnes of food are being destroyed. Please explain the sense in this.

Wow…with all the poverty and hunger in the world and they couldn’t figure out a better way to get rid of the chickens besides euthanasia. SAD what this world is coming to and even sader we aren’t doing enough to stop it.
