Frog Juice

Sue Wallis wants slaughter companion animals (which should make you stop right there) and offer them as meat… which won’t be routinely tested for injected drugs, which should prevent it from being sold for consumption thereby halting slaughter in the first place.

Dermorphin is an opiod peptide – an amino acid found naturally in certain species of frogs but likely is being synthetically produced for improper use in horses, said Steven Barker, a chemist who is head of the state testing laboratory at LSU.

“It’s far more potent than morphine,” Barker said.

There’s no legitimate use for dermorphin in racing, he said. “This drug in horses is an abuse of the horse,” he said. “This puts the horse’s life in danger. It puts the jockey’s life in danger. This is an attempt to cheat. This is bad stuff. This is doping.”

If Sue Wallis gets her way, this is just one of the hidden ingredients people will be eating.
