Memorial Day: Practice Wisdom, Compassion, and Courage

Wagner Farm Rescue Fund is proud to be included on the web site of FARM (Farm Animal Rights Movement) on their link to Animal Rights / Vegan Blogs:
http://www.farmusa.org/links.htm






 Wisdom, compassion, and courage are the three universally recognized moral qualities of men - Confucious


Perhaps if more wisdom, compassion, and courage were actually practiced universally, the death tolls that are added to each additional Memorial Day wouldn't be so high

What becomes the essence of days such as Memorial Day and other "patriotic" holidays when those lost are "honored" through activities such as barbecues which are centered on the taking of even more innocent lives?

On Memorial Day, and every day..

In memory of all those lost to the violence of mankind - in wars, on the streets, in programming and policies

In memory of all those gave their lives, in memory of all those whose lives were taken from them

In memory of all those, through speciesism, are often not even recognized or respected as sentient beings, or considered entitled to or even deserving of memorializing

What is the US flag suppose to symbolize, if not that of wisdom, compassion, and courage? Where is there wisdom, compassion, and courage in essentially supporting violence against any living being, through promotion of food not even physiologically necessary, and through "entertainment" and "education"?

If like their predecessors, these months-old 15 pigs - and the 14 lambs in the enclosure next to them - will soon be sold by the taxpayer purchased and funded Wagner Farm and their Glenview Clovers 4H club to auction and slaughter at the Lake County (IL) Fair:

http://www.lcfair.com/livestock-auction/4576672481

Wagner Farm has repeatedly been rejecting requests made over many years to send these 4H animals to sanctuary, and is instead now rejecting all collaborative efforts offered by Wagner Farm Rescue Fund.

Once any animals, including those owned "privately", become part of a facility in any capacity that is taxpayer purchased and funded, such as Wagner Farm is, they immediately become the business of the public.

Violent Ideologies: Oblivious To Unpleasant Truths

"..we eat animals and choose not to know we're even making a choice.

Free Choice In Eating Animals Is Hardly "Free"

Wagner Farm Rescue Fund is proud to be included on the web site of FARM (Farm Animal Rights Movement) on their link to Animal Rights / Vegan Blogs:
http://www.farmusa.org/links.htm


"Most people who eat meat have no idea that they're behaving in accordance with the tenets of a system that has defined many of their values, preferences, and behaviors. What they call 'free choice' is, in fact, the result of a narrowly obstructed set of options that have been chosen for them" - Dr. Melanie Joy, Why We Love Dog, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows

Pigs: Cognitive Abilities of Three Year Old Humans

http://www.farmusa.org/links.htm



video

Have the courage and heart to know these pigs, and who they are - not "what" they are - who is being sent to auction and slaughter. See these sentient beings interact and play. Pigs are noted to have the cognitive abilities of a 3 year old human.

How can it then be disregarded - even disputed - that pigs being slaughtered are therefore cognitive that they are being slaughtered? Is it really believed that there is no cognition, no pain, no violence involved?

Something Is Amiss When It's The Way Things Are

Wagner Farm Rescue Fund is proud to be included on the web site of FARM (Farm Animal Rights Movement) on their link to Animal Rights / Vegan Blogs:
http://www.farmusa.org/links.htm

"Our choices as consumers drives an industry that kills ten billion animals per year in the United States alone. If we choose to support this industry and the best reason we can come up with is because it's the way things are, clearly something is amiss." - Dr. Melanie Joy, Why We Love Dogs, Eat PIgs, and Wear Cows: The Belief System That Enables Us to Eat Some Animals and Not Others





"Meat cannot be procured without violence" - Dr. Melanie Joy
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0VrZPBskpg
Why is the taxpayer purchased and funded Wagner Farm continuing to dismiss compassionate outcomes for their Glenview Clovers 4H animals which are available, and even collaborative efforts toward such outcomes have been consistently offered and requested - but denied?
Just months old, and apparently already scheduled to die in less than three months due to the chosen program outcomes of the taxpayer purchased and funded Wagner Farm and their Glenview Clovers 4H.
An IL state 4H representative has already acknowledged that while sale to slaughter has been the culture of 4H, it is not an actual IL 4H requirement. Therefore, it is apparent that sale to slaughter is just a chosen, preferred outcome of Wagner Farm, where personnel has stated that they do not find the bolt-gunning of these animals in the head to be inhumane.

Why is the taxpayer purchased and funded Wagner Farm continuing to dismiss compassionate outcomes for their Glenview Clovers 4H animals which are available, and even collaborative efforts toward such outcomes have been consistently offered and requested - but denied?

Just months old, and apparently already scheduled to die in less than four months due to the chosen program outcomes of the taxpayer purchased and funded Wagner Farm and their Glenview Clovers 4H.

An IL state 4H representative has already acknowledged that while sale to slaughter has been the culture of 4H, it is not an actual IL 4H requirement. Therefore, it is apparent that sale to slaughter is just a chosen, preferred outcome of Wagner Farm, where personnel has stated that they do not find the bolt-gunning of these animals in the head to be inhumane.
