—James A. Froude, English historian (1818–1894)

If you visit the killing floor of a slaughterhouse, it will brand your soul for life.

What's wrong with wearing wool?

petak, 5. veljače 2010.

As in other industries where the animals are bred for profit, the interests of animals used in the wool industry is rarely thought. Herds usually consist of thousands of sheep and individual care of their needs is almost impossible. Many people believe that sheepshearers helps animals that would otherwise feel burdened with so much wool, but without the interference of humans, sheep, grew just enough wool to protect themselves from temperature.

Most wool comes from Australia. Just a few weeks after birth, the department of their tails, the males Neutered, all without anesthesia. Very high level of mortality is considered normal. 20 to 40 percent of the lamb died from cold and hunger before they reach the age of eight weeks, eight million adult sheep die from disease, lack of shelter, and neglect. Million of them die in 30 days from the clip. Australian farmers perform a barbaric operation that involves carving the great line of skin and flesh from the back of the leg lamb without anesthesia. When shear rate is most important. People are usually paid by performance, not by the hour, which encourages fast and reckless operation. One witness says, "The place where shear his sheep must be one of the worst places in the world for cruelty to animals. I saw people shear to hit the sheep with scissors or fists until they noses bleed. I saw a sheep that is half the face was clipped.
