What could possibly be wrong with #wool? Sheep need haircuts, don't they? Sadly, the wool industry involves a lot of cruel practices.
The most notable is called "mulesing." You can Google that to see the heart-wrenching photos. It's a procedure in which farmers carve big chunks of skin and flesh from lambs’ behinds using tools resembling gardening shears, usually without painkillers. This is common practice in Australia, where the vast majority of the world's wool is produced, in a crude attempt to prevent a parasitic infection called “flystrike.” You see, sheep have been bred to have extra wrinkly skin so they'll produce more wool, but that makes them more susceptible to flystrike. The industry's solution? Just cut off their butts. It's horrific.
Shearing is also far from a spa-day haircut for sheep. Shearers are typically paid by the sheep, not by the hour, so they work as fast as possible sacrificing welfare of the animals.
When their wool production drops, sheep are typically sent to slaughter for meat. Millions are killed every year. This usually involves a looong journey in a cramped transport ship to countries with little-to-no legal protections for these animals.
There's no reason to continue supporting this industry when so many cruelty-free alternatives exist today. You'll prevent needless suffering by choosing vegan sweaters, socks, blankets, carpets, and beyond. -@MichelleCehn 👩🏼🌾.

This is the reaction a hunter gave when asked for his opinion on the video. He'd previously told me that "Animals don't have the emotions to suffer" and also that "Plants feel pain" among many other baseless excuses for needlessly killing wild animals such as those he displays on his profile while smiling and holding their dead bodies like trophies. But apparently because I questioned him and don't engage in the same 'interests', he labels me as "extreme" and "a member of a cult"... Just thought I'd share so that maybe you can ask yourself if you'd support his position, and also why what he says is much different to what you may think about animal agriculture.
#ramenweek #7 / starting this week is a new #ramen for me, but one that has quickly become one of my #favorites / #menshotokyo in #bunkyo serve #lamb ramen! Yes, lamb. #mutton is not especially #popular in #japan but this place really knows how to handle it. Their #broth is creamy and very distinctively sheepy, but not in an overpowering way. There is a host of unusual spices you can add to the #soup including herb-infused vinegar and roasted #matcha /Another highlight is the assortment of #meat that comes with the dish. This includes pieces of slow-cooked lamb and #pork and lamb #chashu. This is a highly recommended place you should definitely check out!
