Love animals and think by eating “humane” meat you’re doing the right thing? Well, I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you’re not.
Are some farms slightly better than others with regard to how animals are treated? Yes. But the word “humane” when it comes to meat is completely meaningless.
Why? For starters, no one regulates the use of that word. That’s right: No government agency actually defines or regulates the meaning of “humane.”
Just look at this 2015 Mercy For Animals undercover investigation at a Foster Farms facility that was certified humane by American Humane Association. It’s truly a horror show.
Additionally, animals on so-called humane farms are still mutilated without painkillers, ripped away from their mothers soon after birth, and violently slaughtered. And let’s be real: No animal wants to die to become your meat.
The fact is pigs, cows, chickens, and other farmed animals are just as sensitive and intelligent as the dogs and cats we love at home. Sadly, the meat industry is allowed to legally abuse billions of them in ways that would warrant felony-level animal cruelty charges if the victim were just one dog or cat.
While labels on meat may make you feel better inside, the reality is that the meat industry slaps these on to hide the truth.
If you’re upset by the truth, join the millions of people ditching animal products and switch to a compassionate vegan diet.
