Do you ever get the sense that some progressives just go through life looking for things to protest?
The Washington Examiner reports:
Animal rights protesters harass students and try to shut down university meat processing center
Animal rights activists, led by the local chapter of Direct Action Everywhere, have been holding frequent protests against California Polytechnic State University’s meat processing center, and say they won’t let up until the center is closed — or at least until the cows come home.
The on-campus J & G Lau Family Meat Processing Center is not unlike other on-campus meat processing centers. It is actually a glorious example of Cal Poly’s “Learn by Doing” motto at work.
“We are trying to show students how to do it right,” Jaymie Noland, head of Cal Poly’s animal science department, told The Tribune. “It’s one of the premier meat processing centers on any university campus in the world.”
The center prides itself on maintaining humane and ethical treatment of animals at all times. And yes, like most meat processing centers, they kill animals for food.
“Cal Poly employs a staff of dedicated veterinarians throughout the year to ensure all animals are always given the medical care and attention they need,” university spokesman Matt Lazier said in a statement. “Cal Poly recognizes its responsibilities to ensure that animals are well cared for, and therefore adheres to all applicable federal, state, local and institutional laws or guidelines governing animal welfare.”
