Osnabrück (AFP) The German Animal Welfare Association has proposed a meat tax to finance better animal husbandry. "In parallel with the CO2 tax, we also need a meat tax," said animal welfare President Thomas Schröder the "New Osnabrück newspaper" on Monday. "The revenue could finance the conversion of the stables." That's only a few cents per kilo of meat, liter of milk or egg carton.
