Split fetlocks not to be seen

NOT wishing to keep “nagging” on about the meat debate, despite what’s been said, this is not primarily a health issue, but an ethical one.
It is an issue of theft by fraud and deception and misrepresentation. Although the main crime is that it’s gone on for so long without detection. If it is, or was, a major health problem, why are our hospitals not full of people suffering with colic, cracked hoof, or split fetlocks, and other equine problems? Most of us suffer from a mild form of Ozoturia (aka Monday morning sickness) but that’s all. When was a person last shot for having a broken leg? When this is over no doubt someone will discover sea-horse DNA in fish fingers, then we will be truly “knackered!” I will stick to my GM wholewheat bread and battery-hen eggs for breakfast.
