Lamb





Joe elected to slaughter the lamb at dawn, just when there was enough light but before the bottle flies came out. I have to say, this level of connectedness to food is profound. If you eat it, you should know why and how.
In the first frame, the family dog watches as the lamb is led to the back yard. Strange.
Joe and his wife Lindsay and their son Issac are a lovely family living in Dubois.

whew, you reaffirmed why i don't eat it - the photos are strangely beautiful even though they make me shudder.

hahaha, it amuses me sooooo much when i see the reactions of people around here after they actually witness the slaughtering of an animal.
did you think the lambs, pigs, cattle etc just take a pill and go to sleep forever so that we can bbq their asses and eat them?
i saw this sticker on a car not long ago. it said: "i love animals. they are delicious."
nice pics
