Larry the Lamb

Larry the Lamb

It’s your special day Larry the lamb

Your chance to earn your reward from man

We’re sending you off with all your friends

To the men with the knives where your life ends

It’s not that we don’t like you Larry the lamb

But we just want to eat you don’t you understand

We know you have feelings, but we just don’t care

To us you’re a chop, cooked up not to rare


Oh don’t be sad now Larry the lamb

Butcher bill is a very nice man

His knives are especially sharp and thin

So you won’t feel a thing as they slide in


We don’t have to eat you Larry the Lamb

But we love our lamb chops so we eat what we can

Somewhere deep inside we know it’s a lie

We know we shouldn’t cause the millions to die


But who is going to stop us Larry the Lamb

Some super brain animal with a master plan

It’s not going to happen you will continue to bleed

Because man will always be driven by greed

Over 5,000 equines to slaughter each month

The economic crisis in Spain means over 5,000 equines go to slaughter each month.

Since the recession started the number of horses and donkeys finding themselves in trouble all over Europe has risen and in Spain values and demand has dropped abruptly. The reaction from many breeders and owners is to sell their animals for slaughter resulting in a glut of animals resulting in terrible welfare consequences .Spain has always exported animals for meat to other European countries but the number must have increased over the last few years.

WTFAW is researching what the effects of this are as how we can help but finding data on export figures and the markets involved is difficult. If any reader has information that can help throw some light on the latest situation please get in contact.

I will post more info on this and a plan of action as soon as we have completed the research.
