Do you think its right to kill and eat any animal? I mean if you ride a horse, don't you think a goat, or lamb, cow, or even chicken should be treated with love also? Its not their fault their a different breed, or species. I mean, do you all think its right to kill a animal, or breed a animal just so it can be eaten? And I know lots of people may say, but what about lettuce it grows, and you rip it up and chew it, but I don't think anyone has lettuce as a pet. Its just don't you think a cow should be treated with love, and affection, just like you would treat a horse or a dog? And its sorta of cruel in my opinion, we actually have a farm down the road, they keep baby cows in about 5 feet by 2 feet pens and feed them, and then slaughter them, they do this so they live horrible lives where they can't build muscle and its just fat. Also, when they kill chickens, if the chickens don't die from a heart attack first, this is how they slaughter them-they put the chickens alive on a conveyor belt on the ceiling of the factory or whatever, the chickens hang by their feet and soon run into a blade, it usually cuts off their head, though sometimes, a chicken either doesn't get killed by the blade, or either just gets cuts and bleeds to death, OR they continue to hang on the belt completely alive until they go through the cycle again, or die of a heart attack. And its not just cattle, chickens, or pigs. Its all animals, in some country's they eat animals you call pets, like Germany eats horses, some places eat dogs, and cats, and America has tons of animal cruelty problems, which include setting animals such as puppys and kittens on fire, whether on a BBQ grill or in a dirt pit, some just get abused or neglected, other buried alive, some buried only with their head sticking out and then ran over by lawn mowers, some shot, some "pet" birds get stuck in toasters and ovens, hamsters usually get stuck in microwaves, which to some people is funny, either way, post your thoughts on this subject.
