牛奶有什麼罪?

這幾年來積極得倡導非殘酷的飲食,很多人因而變成了素食主義者,某些人理解奶製與蛋製品背後的殘酷,但因為方便原素還在選擇慢慢做調整,而有些人則聲稱奶蛋製品是毫無殘酷的,尤其當有機農場開始供應奶蛋製品後,奶蛋製品的取用更在素食界中合法化。只是,到底有多有機,非殘酷的定義只是比屠宰場好一點的生活情況,還是他們尊於對生命的尊重,讓其活在最後的尊嚴中,而這個最後的尊嚴只是人類自己可悲的想像,還是真有那麼回事的道德行為。

就在還跳脫不了,動物與人就是不一樣的物種歧視之下,我們真的能相信人階生而平等嗎?我們的說法,真的如你們指稱的只是道德高標準的資產階級想像嗎?

過去我在關生會工作時,曾經就發生一個在中部某一出名的有機農場虐待動物的事件,農場裡養的農場動物與狗兒,被關在狹小的籠子裡,有時多餐沒有被餵食,躺座在被自己淹沒的籠子內,眼睛無神的看著遠方

Milk’s Got Plenty of….Cruelty

 

A dairy cow’s life is a continuous cycle of impragna-tion, birth, and milking to provide one thing only — a constant supply of milk for human consumption and profit.. She will be milked for 10 months out of the year, including seven months of each of her consecutive nine-month pregnancies.. Two to three times a day, seven days a week, she will be attached to an electric milking machine, like just another cog in a factory.. Then she will be returned to her cramped, narrow, concrete stall to do nothing but await the next milking..

 

Within hours after giving birth, the cow’s calf will be forcibly taken from her.. Male calves will be sold for pet food, killed at just a few days old to make “bob veal”, or raised for beef..

 

Others will be auctioned to producers of “formula-fed veal”..

On veal farms,
male calves are confined in tiny crates to restrict their movement in order to keep their muscles tender.. They are fed an iron-deficient diet which causes severe anima but which keeps their flesh white, making it more valuable when they are sold for meat.. Subjected to total sensory deprivation and stripped of any measure of joy, 20% of veal calves will die before even reaching the typical slaughtering age of 16 weeks..So think about it..in every glass of milk,
is a slice of VEAL

 

 

The female calves will be sequestered in tiny stalls in preparation for their enslavement to the dairy industry.. When they are old enough to be artificially inseminated, they will begin the drudgery of a dairy cow.. Their mother will be promptly put back into intensive milk production, where she will remain at risk for numerous stress related illnesses, infections, and diseases, many of which can be fatal..

 

A dairy cow will survive a mere four years of this cruel, hollow life, whereas under natural conditions, she might live up to 25 years.. At the end of her days, when she can no longer keep up the demanded level of milk production, drained and exhausted, she will be packed onto a crowded truck for transport to her final destination — the slaughterhouse..
After a life of slavery and servitude, her retirement gift will be to end up like her fellow “food animals” — on somebody’s plate..So beaware..if you continue to drink milk while unwittingly clinging to the myth that it is benignly begotten, you should be outraged to know that 40% of America’s hamburger is made from “spent” dairy cows!
