Yes, I know, meat does not magically get onto your plate, animals are slaughtered, but do we need to have slaughterhouses in residential areas, I mean we are not some shit hole third world country, OH WAIT, I forgot, this is Queens, the third world borough. But I will say, these place are much better than those horrible factory farms, at least they don’t have animals crammed into crates where they cannot move around and more than likely are treated more humanely than those horrible factory farms, but still, do we need slaughterhouses in residential areas.
And for the record, I am a vegetarian.
From Queens Courier:
Police catch an escaped goat that was running loose in Ozone Park this morning
Here we goat again.
Police officers wrangled an escaped goat that was spotted running loose in Ozone Park.
ABC7 first reported that a goat was out and about behind M.S. 137 at 98th Street and 109th Avenue early this morning. The goat had reportedly escaped from a nearby slaughterhouse.
Police officers caught the goat and returned it to its original owner. It is unknown at this time what fate awaits the goat.
Cops have had a history of chasing down animals who have escaped from slaughterhouses in Queens. This past February, a runaway bull escaped from a slaughterhouse in Jamaica and managed to evade the police for over two hours before being captured. The bull died later that day while in custody of an Animal Care Centers of NYC facility in Brooklyn.
