Sheep in the wool industry are not retired after their productivity expires. Like all commercial farm animals, their lives end at the slaughterhouse. Sale yards are hot, noisy, stressful places for sheep. From there, many of them are loaded onto live export ships and face weeks-long journeys to other parts of the world (where investigations have revealed the most brutal treatment and slaughter practices).
.
The practice of shearing itself is rough and unpleasant for sheep, but many people think that these animals are not killed for their wool. They are. All commercial farm animals suffer violentΒ deaths when they are young. This is where wool comes from.

    I was just at @wishingwellsanctuary and had the pleasure of hanging out with the sheep for a bit. This pic is such a stark contrast to that. Such disregard for life and so unnecessary.

    I had no problem giving up meat and dairy, but wool was a tough one - until I saw first-hand how sheep are treated. Total horror show.

    Only an evil person finds this stuff acceptable. It's written all over the Bible to treat animals with kindness (Proverbs comes to mind). Jesus was the good shepherd, kind to his animals and those around him.
