Hit lever for the manure-spreader

Please, would you all stop trying to tell our farmers how to run their businesses?

www.venison.ca/index.html. This above link is for a Canadian deer farm.

Are these deer that have lost the lottery? Are we dealing locally with endangered species deer? If only. Are our local deer special exempt deer? What kind of reasoning goes into threatening to boycott a small fraction of less than five per cent of the food purchased on Vancouver Island (veggies grown here) by someone who lives in Vancouver?

I’m lost here. Our natural, organic, hormone and antibiotic-free wild venison represents animals who live freely in the most beautiful place on Earth. They occupy the narrowest fringe of the food chain, and are at risk of being maimed by a car above any other threat. The problem here is in deciding how best to harvest them.

Beef, pork, lamb, poultry, fish, deer. Food. Get it?

They all have faces, they all have mothers, they all are delicious. People eat them … or choose not to. How many vegans are under fire from the omnivores?

Please, would you all stop trying to tell our farmers how to run their businesses? Do you have a tractor parked by your cubicle supervising your work?

Hit the lever for the manure-spreader, Mac!
