My vegetarian girlfriend/camera operator refuses to watch this week's video, so I won't be insulted if you skip over it too. I'll be more impressed, though, if you watch. For those of you who can handle blood and like to see where your meat comes from—those who appreciated last week's slaughterhouse video on Food Curated—this one's for you.
If you can call killing an animal "humane," this slaughtering is probably the most humane killing I've ever seen. The two bison were dead before they hit the ground—they never knew it was coming. Regardless, it's hard to see an animal of such strength and beauty die and then get butchered. The slaughter is followed by a recipe for bison tartare.
