My good friend Stephanie Ernst, who writes the animal rights blog over at change.org, posted a compelling blog entry about sheep and wool today. She wrote about common practices in the wool industry that are unbelievably barbaric and painful to the sheep, such as mulesing. This practice of tying down sheep and slicing off the skin surrounding their tails without anesthetics is something I learned about for the first time at Farm Sanctuary this summer. I knew that as a vegan I would stop wearing wool because it is an animal product, but I did not realize the extent of the suffering and painful mutilations associated with wool production. In this Vegan Break episode, Angela from farm sanctuary describes some of the reasons why wool isn’t something most people would want to support, let alone wear.
