So the Food Police, animal rights, and even human rights are up in arms over a lamb going to slaughter. Apparently, children deciding to send a lamb to be slaughtered is a major trauma and needed to be stopped. To me this is too much political correctness, an extreme and false interpretation of animal rights, and a deliberate misunderstanding of what raising animals for food means.
LONDON (Reuters) – A group of schoolchildren who reared a lamb from birth and named it Marcus has overridden objections by parents and rights activists and voted to send the animal to slaughter.
Marcus the six-month-old lamb has now been culled, theof the primary school in Kent confirmed on Monday, after the school’s council — a 14-member group of children aged 6 to 11 — voted 13-1 to have him killed.
The decision has provoked fury among animal-loving celebrities, animal and human rights campaigners and the parents of some of the children, and led to threats against Lydd primary school and its teachers, according to a member of staff.
This is too funny and too sad at the state that the world has come to.
