Animal Agriculture Violence Belied By Bucolic Facades For Only So Long

"An understanding of the means through which people learn to justify the treatment of the animals known as “livestock” can shed light on the mechanisms involved in generic processes of inequality.”
- See more at: http://freefromharm.org/…/the-4-h-club-a-case-study-in-ho…/…
Based on comments being made by numerous people, including visitors to the public funded Wagner Farm, not only are an increasing amount of the general public demonstrating that they are recognizing that a bucolic facade belies for only so long the violence associated with animal agriculture, but expressing their disapproval of it being at the core of much of the programming and events of a public funded facility and implemented by personnel salaried with public funds.

Animal Death: Why Transparency Issues Pervade

What Happened To The Rooster at the Public Funded Wagner Farm?
A Requested Report Still Not Provided To Wagner Farm Rescue Fund; Numerous Questions Still Unanswered




This rooster had been reported by senior management personnel at Wagner Farm as having been "euthanized" - via neck twisting - on April 10.
Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel was told on April 11 that a report would be provided to us.
As of May 24, no report has been received.

http://wagnerfarmrescuefund.blogspot.com/2016/05/dead-rooster-numerous-questions-still.html

Why wouldn't a requested report be provided regarding the death of an animal at a public funded facility?
This is just one of the numerous reasons that much of the public now has even more escalating questions about transparency issues regarding many public funded facilities, such as Wagner Farm is.
Roosters are known to be instinctively protective of their flock. This rooster had been put into a cat carrier in the chicken house supply room and seen struggling to get his footing in the carrier.
This placement in the carrier was subsequently attributed to his giving programmers (tour guides) a "hard time" - just a day before he was then reported as having been found injured (with a then supposed phone diagnosis of a broken leg) and then "euthanized" - via neck twisting - a day after that with a visit noted as having been offered by a veterinarian but declined by Wagner Farm.

Mercy Is A Different Matter

“I have often heard the word “humane” used in relation to meat, dairy, eggs, and other products… I have always found this curious, because my understanding is that humane means to act with kindness, tenderness, and mercy. I can tell you as a former animal farmer that while it may be true that you can treat a farm animal kindly and show tenderness toward them, mercy is a different matter." - Harold Brown, former beef and dairy farmer

"We Have An Obligation To Eat Otherwise"

"…What I do is wrong, in spite of its acceptance by nearly 95% of the American population..Someday it must stop. Somehow we need to become the sort of beings who can see what we are doing when we look head on, the sort of beings who don’t weave dark, damning shrouds to sustain, with acceptance and celebration, the grossly unethical. Deeper, much deeper, we have an obligation to eat otherwise.” - Bob Comis, former pig and sheep farmer
