If you’ve got the stomach for it, watch this video footage of an illegal backyard butcher. Oh and BTW, if you think this sort of thing only takes place outside the USA — think again. A good percentage of these illegal backyard butchers are in…ready…wait for it… FLORIDA!!!!! That’s right. The video you’re about to watch, if you can stomach it, was taken from good ole sunny vacation spot Florida!
Backyard Butchery: An Ethical Alternative to Factory Farming?
With such a focus on factory farming today, there is little attention on a growing movement in the backyard slaughter farms which operate under the radar and without any regulatory oversight. But some activists are hoping to change that. In Southern Florida in particular, the backyard butchery movement is thriving, and investigator Richard “Kudo” Couto of Animal Recovery Mission (ARM) is a pioneering activist who does a tremendous job exposing these covert operations. His investigations have turned up some of the most horrific cruelty to animals perhaps ever documented in modern times. The photos and video footage obtained from Cuoto’s investigations are indeed harrowing and devastating…

Your warnings convinced me I don’t want to watch it, but I’m glad somebody is on it.
I really commend these people who are willing to go deep into the trenches in order to rescue, put and end to and indite these horrible humans who commit such egregious acts of animal cruelty. I don’t have the stomach for it. Watching a video and/or looking at a picture is one thing but to be present — that’s a whole other story.
I’m learning a lot from your blog — I knew about a lot inhumane treatment on farms, but like most people didn’t really dig into it (or want to). Thanks – I definitely think the next political frontier is to expand awareness of these issues, whether corporate or “back yard.”
I really appreciate hearing this. Thanks Scott!
Sometimes I feel as though my blog is becoming too radical and worry it may scare people away. And then other times I think, “Well, if people don’t like it, don’t read/follow”.
The advocacy for the rights of animals is a priority of mine. And if I can change one person’s mind about animal rights — especially farm animals, then maybe I can change two, three, four…and so on.
