So rare it moos

You might want to put that hamburger down before you read this.

According to a study by Compassion in World Farming, an animal-rights group, many farm animals that end up on your plate are still alive and conscious even after they’ve been stunned, slapped onto meat hooks, and had their throats slashed.

The study, published in the SUNDAY TIMES (UK), said the problem is the result of high demand and the fact that animals are hustled through “abattoirs” (a nice name for a slaughterhouse) so quickly that they are not sufficiently stunned to induce unconsciousness.

So … you gonna finish that?
