Let the Easter lambs live

The beautiful picture of the little lambs is not only elicited by children.
Many adults also shout at this sight: “How cute! How cute! ”

But the cruel truth is: All these little lambs will soon end up under the butcher’s knife – punctually for Easter, they end up on the plate as roast lamb.
Because for many people who celebrate the “Festival of Life”, children’s corpses are part of the traditional Easter banquet.

In Germany, sheep have long ceased to be kept for their wool, as world market prices for wool are below production costs.
Today sheep are used almost exclusively for meat production: 98 percent of the sheep farmers’ income is generated from meat sales. One to two million sheep – almost exclusively lambs – are slaughtered in Germany every year.

A particular specialty at Easter is milk lambs – infants who still drink from their mother and have never eaten grass, between 8 weeks and six months old.

Because of this, they have very white meat that is called!
“As soft as butter, with delicate fibers and low in fat” applies – just baby meat.

Milk lambs, which – as the name suggests – are still infants, usually only reach an age of 2-6 months – fattening lambs an age of 6-12 months before they are snatched from their mothers – and not infrequently at just 8 Weeks to be cruelly slaughtered!

The babies tormented and murdered, the mother animals disturbed and deeply traumatized – in the name of Christian tradition, for the Easter “palate tickle”.

Since the local sheep farming and lamb production rarely yields the desired financial return, the animal children are also imported en masse from abroad in order to satisfy the annual greed for Easter lamb.

In order to prevent the suffering of the Easter lambs in the long term and to prolong their unspeakably short lives, an alternative holiday menu helps.
At Easter, do without the meat of the little sheep, which, due to a stupid tradition, have to die after a few months.

Celebrate, but lamb-and animal-free!

My best regards to all, Venus
