ARGENTINA AND HORROR IN ITS WOOL SUPPLY INDUSTRY
“All creatures are deserving of a life free from fear and pain”
Animal cruelty nowadays is getting more and more transparent. It seems that people who have committed those kind of crimes are not punished in the right way because the public is not enough aggressive to fight for a justice. Animals can’t speak and they can not express verbally their trauma but all of us who see it or hear it, we are their voice and we are those who speak out for all of them, for all voiceless.
There is no hope for any society to become human if there is no place for animal rights and set of regulations against animal abuse. Animals are not the property of people and the greedy industry that misuse domestic and wild animals for the sake of profit is nothing but a devil’s nest. The absence of any ethical standards regarding the treating of animals is showing the absence of humanity in our times. Today they cut off the paws of the stray dogs, tomorrow the same sadists will cut off the ears of our children. The sadism is always silent but persistent.
According to the latest reports of PETA, the situation for sheep in Argentina is almost like a folklore of the movie SAW. Terror, pain, blood and death. No mercy for the innocent. The video has exposed the farms in the system Ovis 21 and the way they handle the poor sheep. It is beyond imaginable that lambs are skinned alive while some sheep are abused, mutilated or simply neglected. Just for a wool. But, the tragedy is bigger than the money they are hoping to get because the PETA has informed the whole world about the shameful practice of Argentina.
Whats happening over there ? The butchery. The limits of professional ethic do not exist anymore, all what we can find there is an absolute failure of empathy and sadism. The same line of terror against the sheep has been exposed in the U.S. and Australia too but now Argentina shows its own face of evil. The wool industry can not work without blood and torture. Every company worldwide that claims opposite is not honest and try to operate its business, having a fear from the global condemn and financial fiasco. The controversial Ovis 21 has supplied the famous brands like Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Brioni, Christopher Kane, Gucci, Volcom and Saint Laurent but after the massacre has been published, the company has been isolated and its offer on the market has been ignored, especially by the Patagonia Inc., outdoor clothing company.
The sheep are very sensitive animals and their family feelings keep them even more disturbed when one family member is hurt. Separating mothers from children and torturing the both is the schedule of the real monsters:“Workers picked up gentle lambs and—while they were fully conscious—tied their legs together, plunged knives into their throats, and sawed through their necks. Blood poured from the wounds as they kicked with their only free leg. Workers then snapped their heads backwards, apparently trying to break their necks.Even after all that, some of the lambs still managed to cry out and gasp.Minutes later, some lambs were still alive and kicking when a worker drove a knife into their legs to start skinning them. Eventually, they were hacked apart. Their organs were carved out of their bodies and their severed heads dumped into a bloody tub.All this happened in full view of other lambs. They were just feet away and cried out in what must have been terror and severe distress. Older sheep—used for their wool, then no longer wanted—were lined up, tackled, and dragged away to be shipped to slaughter.”
That is a scenario of animal cruelty in Argentina, in one of the famous farms that deliver the wool used for our clothes. I believe that any human being, with the pure heart, would rather pick up the synthetic or animal friendly materials for a whole life than knowing that innocent lives are gone just for a so called feeling of comfort in wool. There is no humane wool, all you get it is a wool taken from the animal in very cruel way just to support your sick need for quality.
With the advanced technology and progressed thoughts of society we live in, someone would expect that the criteria of humanity will be higher and the respect for all forms of life will be sign of spiritual development of one community. Unfortunately, we are everything but not the humans. We exploit the nature, abuse the animals and kill each others without any break. Then, we are daring to be proud that we are ready to colonize the other planets. I am not sure we deserve anymore to exist on this planet, on the Earth we have killed long time ago.
The wool industry in Argentina is not sustainable and responsibly sourced, it is colored with the blood of innocent animals that have nothing to do with your real needs to survive. Because, honestly, you do not need wool to survive and you do not need the thousand of animals to be killed for your pathetic feeling of being dressed in good quality. It is not about your life, it is about the death of your moral.
The only solution is global ignorance of wool suppliers and their exposure in social media.Their dirty business must be shown to the public and their appetite for inhuman treatment of animals must be presented as shameful and must be prosecuted. As long as we negotiate with indifference and close our eyes for the suffer of innocence, we will be more and more stuck in the silence not only of lambs but also the silence of our souls.
