A bizarre petition was drawn up in order to stop what was called the “Death by Food” event. Farmers were inviting people to personally slaughter animals so they can see where their food came from before they take it home and ate it. This macabre event was supposedly created to help people become more educated about where their food is coming from.
Animal activist however, raised a big stink about the event claiming that it was both cruel and unfair to the animals. The petition raised such a ruckus that the event was eventually canceled. Yes, we who eat meat know how brutal the process to get our meat the grocery store is, but it makes you question anyone who’d want to participate in the slaughter of animals first hand.
Would you participate in a “Death by Food” event?
