Animal welfare in Nazi Germany

Wikipedia has a fascinating article on how the monstrous Nazi party implemented some of the most advanced animal and environmental protection laws in the world, most of which are still in effect in modern-day Germany:

Germany was the first nation to ban vivisection. A law imposing total ban on vivisection was enacted on August 16, 1933, by Hermann Göring as the prime minister of Prussia. He announced an end to the “unbearable torture and suffering in animal experiments” and said that those who “still think they can continue to treat animals as inanimate property” will be sent to concentration camps.

Contrast that with the insane damage the Nazi’s did to Europe’s people, wildlife and environment, and you wonder where the disconnect was. Not to mention the fact that WW2 was the primary reason industrial farms started in the first place!

Dislaimer: we hate Nazi’s. Nazi Punks Fuck Off!
