Yukk indeed!
Another reason to buy local produce and know what you're eating ... and another reason to become vegetarian, if you're not already.

We could honour the food animals by not eating them. It seems like the only honourable thing to do.
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
