Let's see: Chinese kid wearing communist red stereotype. Check.
Did they only sell the one goose by the end of it?
Explanation for non German speakers: A butcher did his work on the christmas geese in a pedestrian zone as an experiment.
It didn't add to the motivation to buy the meat, although it couldn't have been more fresh.
Instead regular people started crying and two vegan girls started to haggle and gather funds to save the remaining geese somehow.
Yes, in English we call it 'veal' by the way. A few male calves are brought up for breeding purposes, but yes the majority are slaughtered for their meat. You should hear the noise the mum cows make for weeks after their calf has been taken from them.Here in the Netherlands, we produce a lot of milk. To produce milk, cows need to be continuously pregnant and have no say in that (we humans do not call it rape, but "being decked"). Then, as soon as the calf is born, because the calf drinks the milk we need, the baby cow is slaughtered and sold as "veil". It's tender meat. After 3-5 years, the cow is old, and gets slaughtered too. Some of the calf are kept to grow into milk cows, but only if it is a girl, a baby boy cow goes straight to the slaughter.
