Restaurant i stormvejr: Hængte ko på hovedet ned fra loftetRestaurant i stormvejr: Hængte ko på hovedet ned fra loftet

Stormvejret er opstået på de sociale medier, hvor flere er forargede over den udstoppede ko i loftet – men restauranten nægter at tage den ned.

Restauranten Etica ligger i Adelaide i Australien og blev for nyligt stemt ind som værende blandt de 50 bedste spisesteder i landet. Kort efter dette valgte restauranten, som har sloganet 'etisk pizzaria og mozzarellabar', at åbne dørene op for et nyt spisested med 'slagteri-tema'.

Her har man valgt at dekorere med en udstoppet ko ved navn Schvitzy, der hænger ned fra loftet i sine bagben. Det betyder, at dens hovedet hænger og dingler ned over de spisende gæster, skriver The Telegraph.

Det har stødt så mange mennesker, at en indsamling for at få Schvitzy taget ned allerede har fået flere end 3.500 underskrifter.

'Det her er ubeskriveligt, frygteligt og chokerende at se. Det er en tydelig fremvisning af ligegyldigheden i vores samfund, som skaber plads til, at folk kan få det bedre med andre arters død og tortur,' skriver folkene bag indsamlingen blandt andet.

En bruger på Instagram ved navn Vanessa, som kalder sig veganer, skriver: 'Det her er grunden til, at jeg er veganer. Etica Pizza kender ikke definitionen på ordet etisk.'

Ejeren af restauranten har på Instagram taget til genmæle, da han mener, kritikken er misforstået.

'Schvitzy er ikke dekoration. Installationen har en mission: Vi vil fortælle om de sande konsekvenser ved at spise mejeriprodukter. Malkekoen bliver udsat for flere unaturlige fysiske krav end nogle andre landbrugsdyr.'

We appreciate all the attention our new project is receiving. Our aim is to create thoughtful conversation. What does 'ethical' mean? It is a subjective term based on an individual's morals. Etica was created to promote animal welfare. This means that we work hard to select produce sourced from farms with the highest welfare standards. We never compromise on this. Importantly, there is a distinction between animal welfare and animal rights. Those who believe in animal rights do not believe in exploiting any animal for any purpose whatsoever. Etica has an agenda of authenticity and transparency. We understand that there is no kind way to kill an animal. As an animal welfarist institution, we ensure that the animals (and their products) we purchase are raised with care. Our purpose is to educate consumers on the origins of our food. It is designed to make consumers stop and think about the realities of the dairy industry. The project highlights information that is not readily available to consumers. More broadly, it is a challenge to the way in which our society tends to obscure from the origins of food. Visit our link at: http://etica.pizza/assets/84halifaxdoorsign.pdf We do not aim to influence on whether one should consume dairy, but rather, we urge our consumers to understand the origin of their food in order to make a conscious decision on whether to eat it. The pose of Schvitzy, as she was affectionately known, is purposely confronting. She has not been hung for decoration. The installation has a mission: it aims to draw a connection to the true consequence of consuming dairy. Schvitzy was eight years old. She was the by-product of a dairy farm in South Australia and belonged to a family at Mount Barker. We slaughtered her at her home. Her meat was entirely consumed and her skin was taken to hang in our venue. We are all at different stages of our own moral journey. It is easy to criticise others' ethics that do not align with one's own: Etica believes it is much more powerful to make an informed choice rather than adopt an ideology that one does not completely understand. Peace, love and pizza

Koen var, inden den blev hængt op på restauranten, ejet af en familie fra Mount Barker, der slagtede den. Alt kødet er blevet spist, og der har derfor ikke været noget spild i forbindelse med udstopningen.
