Scald tanks,’ large pools of boiling water, are used to loosen animals’ skin and hair after slaughter. Due to the fast pace at which animals are killed, THOUSANDS OF FARMED ANIMALS ARE BOILED ALIVE each year.

“These hogs get up to the scalding tank, hit the water and start screaming and kicking. Sometimes they thrash so much they kick water out of the tank… Sooner or later they drown... I’m not sure if they burn to death before they drown, but it... ⬇️
... takes them a couple of minutes to stop thrashing.”

Ever ran the tap too hot, or spilled hot water on yourself while cooking.. remember the terrible pain? Now imagine being immersed in it from head to toe with no escape as you desperately try in vain.. while you boil alive 😔

Breaking↘️ @US_FDA Finds Unexpected Antibiotic Resistance #AMR #Genes in ‘Gene-Edited’ Dehorned #Cattle: "The @Recombinetics gene-edited cattle do contain #DNA unnatural to cattle". independentsciencenews.org/news/fda-finds… @Act4AnimalsEU
@US_FDA @Recombinetics @Act4AnimalsEU "FDA’s demonstration that gene-editing techniques can introduce foreign DNA is likely to be seen as a significant blow to the no-regulation argument. It is also a powerful vindication of the #EU approach, which is to regulate gene-edited organisms as #GMOs."
@US_FDA @Recombinetics @Act4AnimalsEU This is one more and very compelling argument to be critical of #CRISPR technologies to genetically modify animals. We recently expressed more criticism here, with regard to using gene editing to prevent puberty in #pigs: allianceforscience.cornell.edu/blog/2019/07/a…

In this article, we express our critical position towards using #CRISPR to engineer #pigs so that do not reach puberty. #Livestock farming should be designed with animal sentience at its core, we should not modify #animals to fit inhumane systems. allianceforscience.cornell.edu/blog/2019/07/a…
One aspect that the article does not mention and that we clearly indicated as being problematic is animal suffering during #experiments involving #CRISPR: painful #malformations, #abortions, are common "side effects" of such experiments.
Our original statement said "#CRISPR has a high potential for causing severe #animal #suffering during the research phases (such as abortions, perinatal mortality, malformations)

how animals are treated differently in the legal system depending on their function - not their ability to feel pain

a man gets sentenced to jail time for hanging a dog - "The Judge wanted to send a clear message about animal abuse" -

The Wiles Hog Pig Farm is found not guilty of animal abuse in its practice of hanging pigs by hooking a chain to a tractor, looping it around the pig's neck and lifting him into the air (while farm hands watched)..
Viewers of the video–portions of which were shown on at least one Cleveland-area television station multiple times–saw a convulsing animal suffering for a full five minutes in the kind of agony euthanasia is supposed to stop not cause.

The on-duty Civil Guard who uploaded a video mocking the send off for the Catalan political prisoners being transported to Madrid is given a few days off.
In 6 months he'll be given a medal.

There are some beings I don't know how to classify
They only live in Spain because there they live like gods
They're from another galaxy, another civilisation
They cannot be human as they have no heart
They're the Civil Guard
