The most transparent...

A good example of how a vegan activist is praying on the goodwill of this abattoir worker.

Well done to the lady in the video for trying to educate their customers and the wider public on how a small abattoir works with its local independent butchers to provide the finest quality meat. Joey offers a 3rd option based on his perspective. Good topic for those in the meat industry to consider.
