This image shows the firing of a captive bolt gun into the skull of a cow. If done “properly,” a long retractable steel rod will penetrate the brain and render the animal unconscious without killing him. Then he will be hung upside down and have his throat slit, dying from massive blood loss. This practice is a part of all commercial cow slaughter, including slaughter under every so-called humane welfare label in the U.S.
At the time of being forced into the restraining device to be shot, even the most “humanely” raised animals are confused, terrified, or, in the rare best case scenarios, have been led to their violent and needless execution by someone they trust or even love.
Don’t buy the humane myth.
