Every time I go shopping at places other than the farmer's market I have to walk past sections and counters of
bloody and fowl smelling decaying beings. Not that I want to, but I can't get everything I need at the farmer's market and there are no all-vegan well-stocked stores in the area.
Personally I find these dead animal departments revolting. Those who consume animals probably don't notice the smell of death that the rest of us do. Nor do they see these products for what they really are...
Often times I take my kids over to the counter and discuss with them
what they are seeing. Today I decided to take a picture of some of what we looked at and talked about (these were taken at Whole Foods Market!).
Quite honestly I cannot fathom the idea of someone looking at these display cases and seeing something they identify as food. I really don't get it. I look at it and I see nothing resembling food. I see only death, the results of selfishness and sadness.
How about you? What is your experience walking past the dead animal department?
