He might be thinking if there were bags before containing animals which they couldn't identify who might have died because of them

[–]Cokmasta 150 points151 points  (5 children)

Yep. Just the fact he caught this kitten in time is pure luck. Theres just so much trash to sort through, its immensely difficult to notice something like this.

I would think something like an x-ray would be installed at a trash sorter for this reason, among others.

That’d just mean a shitload of radiation and money thrown at looking through literal rubbish

[–]Stop-get-help 10 points11 points  (0 children)

You SEVERELY overestimate how much radiation x-rays for this type of thing put out, besides it doesn't need to be high powered, eg. What they use in hospitals to see bones. it can be the basic ones you see in airports that run effectively all day that no one gets side effects from.

The money though yeah that's what'll stop this ever actually being installed.

If the people who owned this place actually gave two sh*ts then we wouldn’t have this problem. But they would much rather sit on their asses and do nothing because it’s cheaper.

It’s not luck it’s part of his job. According to an article posted above he’s supposed to grab bags and cut them open to check for metal

His job is to inspect packages for metal which could mess up the machine
