RE: Animal Consciousness and Meat
Australia like the U.S, is a big meat eating country and the former has been involved recently in some major animal cruelty scandals. We ship live sheep and cattle to Indonesia and other countries by boat. This involves a long and torturous journey with the animals often dying in transit. On arrival recent video footage showed animals beaten with sticks, dragged by already broken legs, and having their throats slit to be slowly drained Islamic style. We justify this on the basis of keeping good trade relationships.

My preferred position is ova lacto vegetarian on both ethical and nutritional criteria. Even if we were to reduce our meat eating over all by a third there would be big environmental benefits not to mention a reduction in animal suffering, particularly those factory housed, who are filled with hormones for fattening up and a wide variety of drugs for other so called consumer benefits. In Asia terrified puppies and small dogs are presented to diners at their table where a choice is made. The fear is said to make the flesh very tender.

I do not think less meat eating would destroy the meat industry as is claimed as new environmentally progressive systems could well make up the leeway. As things stand , in Australia, our eating habits reflect an uncaring ethic and a nutritional disaster.
