Ingrid Newkirk, President and co-founder of
People for the
Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), clearly explains why the
term “humane meat” is untrue and deceiving. The term “humane” refers
to less abused animals, who might have had a little bit more space
to live, maybe some contact with nature such as feeling the grass or
soil, or that might have had a natural diet.
However, all farmed animals killed for food are slaughtered at a
very young age. They don’t get to exercise their natural instincts
or even raise their young. Newkirk makes a call for compassion and
ethical treatment of sentient beings, which should lead people to
stop supporting the meat industry.
