The first case of someone being prosecuted after videotaping an
incident taking place in a slaughterhouse in Utah is making
headlines. Amy Meyer, a woman who wanted to see what happened in a
slaughterhouse, witnessed through barb-wire fence a scene that
disturbed her and prompted her to videotape it on her cell phone. “A
live cow who appeared to be sick or injured being carried away from
the building in a tractor,” Meyer said, “as though she were nothing
more than rubble.” However, even though she never trespassed she is
now being prosecuted under the state’s new “ag-gag” law.

Slaughterhouse from the Public Street:
Profit has trumped ethics and compassion. It’s downright
appalling that the very corrupt animal agriculture industry
continues to use tactics to silence people who just want to expose
what is obviously wrong. Once again, very clearly, the animal
agriculture industry is saying that they have much to hide.
Christians should not support an industry that inflicts egregious
cruelty to God’s animals and goes through extreme lengths to hide it
from consumers. If we do, it shows we really don’t care about the
suffering of God’s creatures. It also shows that we are choosing
taste and convenience over compassion and mercy.
