Does PETA actually think sheep are killed for their wool?
@Snarfel Burger, yes. Yes they do.
@unknownhero42, wow, just wow
@Snarfel Burger, peta are fanatical terrorist hypocritical morons. What they believe can only be explained as insanity (Update: seeing this absolute hoard of people who also can’t stand peta’s BS gives me hope. Bless you all)
@Gallchobhair, that’s a dangerous combination
@Snarfel Burger, indeed
@Snarfel Burger, they think the same with dairy cows for milk
@Bad Boi Jesus, for being people who love animals so much, they know very little about them
@Snarfel Burger, They were actually sued by farmers for making an ad that used a fake bloody hairless sheep to boycott sheep shearing. But wait, it gets better; they admitted in court that it was fake, but then continued to defend the ad.
@KeyWordBeingTry, what the hell?! What a bunch of lunatics
@Gallchobhair, and all the animals in their shelters get put down as soon as they get there and yet animal shelters r cruel
@bobbylupo, i’m a hunter, i will never kill as many animals as they already have
@bobbylupo, Didn't they break into someone's yard and steal their dog because it was hot, then put it down? I remember reading something outrageous like that.
@Gallchobhair, and when u do I’m sure it doesn’t go to waste
@spences, idk but it that was my dog is John wick every person involved
@spences, They kidnap and kill dogs all the time, but there was an infamous instance where they stole a dog from a little blind girl that she got on her birthday and killed it before they got to the end of the street.
@Snarfel Burger, peta is not advertising that sheep are killed but a lot are mistreated. You don't need to stomp on any bodies neck or break their legs to give them a hair cut
@eksat, that would be financially irresponsible for a farmer to kill the sheep. They don’t do that
@Snarfel Burger, scrape the shít out your eyes. I said they abuse the sheep, not kill. You don't need to animal to be happy or healthy to produce wool.
@Snarfel Burger, its also funny because despite their activism, moral shaming, and virtue signaling the first thing peta thinks about when they get an animal is about killing it.
@eksat, thanks for being the only one who knows what theyre talking about. MILK cows and sheep are abused. Depending on where it comes from, sheerers will rip the wool off by hand, rip their skin off because they didnt sheer all the way, or just plain sheer the skin. They dont have to die to bleed. And milk cows are forced to constantly stay pregnant to make milk never leaving their stalls then the babies are taken right from birth to go wherever and repeat until slaughter along with any additional abuse. idgaf about peta or what anyone thinks in the sense, this is fact
@ReverseLion, its not uncommon for uneducated swine to hide on the internet and bash concrete evidence for their own personal gains. Most of the users on funny pics are involved in live stock/farming industries so its not surprising to me that they would be so aggressive anytime anyone suggests not mindlessly killing sentient beings. It hurts their pockets not their hearts
@eksat, eh, just another PETA agent after our dogs
@kurumitokisaki , say the person who eats dogs
@Gallchobhair, from my experience with hunters, one deer can provide plenty of meat, so much that they give it away to people.
@Mag3rPayne, well my family are selfish with our meat. But yeah, when we butcher it ourselves it saves a lot of meat that would be discarded in a slaughterhouse
@Snarfel Burger, to be fair, they don’t say that they are slaughtered for their wool so much as they say their existence as domesticated animals is without dignity. Then they usually call for a one-off slaughter.
A few years ago there was a small protest organized in my city by people who were against local horse drawn carriage businesses because they thought having horses work like that was slavery.
I don’t think they were with PETA but they might as well have been.
And there was me thinking it was called Shearing.
But I must be wrong, because the OP and comments on here spell it sheering.
I watched clarksons farm on prime. Highly recommend it. They have an episode of sheering his sheep’s. It’s quite hilarious
This is top tier material
Do any sheep farmers still use manual sheers? Seems like that would be a lot of work and not as safe for the sheep
@The real meowman, If your thinking of the shjt that you see in minecraft, then no. I'm fairly certain they use some sort of razor. I don't know too much about that industry but I would assume it would be expensive to produce and highly difficult to implement a machine that automatically shears sheep.
@Emp4th, where did you get Minecraft from? I was referring to the sheers in the picture. And I wasn't thinking about an automated machine, I was just thinking about electric clippers/sheers
@The real meowman, some use electric for big jobs and the normal shears for touch or tigher spots that electric shears can’t get a good enough traction. Some even use normal hand shears on sheep that stress due to noise.
