News of the World 15


"KLM Royal Dutch Airlines offers its most sincere apologies to animal lovers and to all those offended by recent events," said KLM spokesman Joessef Eddiei in an unprecedented public statement.

"We made a grave ethical mistake when we threw four hundred and forty live Chinese squirrels into a shredding machine, and we deserve criticism from the public and from animal rights groups.

However, we had little choice, because they had been shipped illegally to Schiphol airport from China, and arrived without proper documentation.

And it may sound strange, but dropping the squirrels into a commercial poultry shredder was actually the most humane way to destroy them.

They felt no more pain than you or I would, were we thrown into a shredder."

Brisbane Courier Mail, 17/4/99

Ohh....I'm getting teary eyed....being thrown in a poultry shredder can't be a pleasant experience for man, chicken or squirrel.

sniffling smooches,

What I want to know is where the little shredded-up squirrels went after the fact. They were in a "commercial poultry shredder". Squirrel McNuggets maybe? :-
