I'm vegetarian here, but even putting my bias aside, that's no way to treat other living beings.
Three million animals, and a common disease between them. Is there no compulsion to see this as a call to find a working cure for hoof and mouth
disease, and to save the lives of the creatures suffering? The first-world meat industry is unprincipled, unscrupulous, and savage in the face of
misfortunes which affect their livestock. It's a shame anyone supports them. I'd also say that the gm foods they're fed, and hormone injections
they receive, are sadistic, but no less a punishment than humans deserve for their Colossal and determined negligence so far as compassion towards
animals go. Are cats and dogs behaviour not enough to teach us that they deserve it?
I can't help it, but I see red every time I hear about factory conditions or situations like this. Why lend it your support?
