Unbelievable. I knew most manufactured pet food is bad for consumers, but this is beyond that.
That's what she specializes in. I lost my taste for her articles some time back. While there's usually an element of truth, it's always overblown and fuzzily misrepresented.I think this a bit of an alarmist article. The title makes it sound as if ingredients in pet food are actually going to kill people.
Partially that, and partially people not following the rules.Or are farm workers at the bottom of the list of people to be protected at work
It happens frequently; in 2019 there were 38 incidents and 23 deaths. The local fire departments all have grain rescue equipment (there's a tube they put around the person, then they vacuum all the grain out of the tube. Pretty cool. Of course that only works if they know where the person is). It's almost always because someone didn't follow the rules. It's never going to happen to you. . .until it does, right?I've read that one or more farmers or their workers suffocate in their grain silos every year. Is that true?
Pigs do, I think. They're very intelligent. Cows. . .probably not. I think it's mostly a matter of their size instead. You get kicked, stepped on, hip-slammed, head-butted, whatever by a 1500-pound animal, it's gonna cause some damage, even if they didn't mean to hurt you.As for cows and pigs killing people, you'd almost think they know we mean them harm.
