I take it you're a vegan, then?
vegetarian, not vegan....and I actually try not to kill anything. Bugs included. I transport spiders outdoors and open windows and shew flies out. No one else has to, that's what I choose to do.
and I understand that euthanizing can be costly and transport of horse bodies too, so maybe that's a place to start. Lowering those costs or funding them in some way.
Obviously there are alot of things that could be changed.
We waste money on baby formula?
Parents can certainly pay for their own baby formula. That shouldn't come from my tax dollar. I breastfed all 6 of my kids and my grandkids are breastfed, and I really hope a mom who is adopting a baby has the money to purchase formula. Seriously. I did think before I spoke. WIC has a 7 trillion dollar budget. I think that would help some horses/euthasias/body transports.
and I understand millions of cats and dogs are killed every year in shelters, (I wasn't talking about strays, I was talking about peoples pets ) cats and dogs aren't sent to slaughter after being a friend and companion to humans. If you want to eat horse meat, raise a horse from a baby to be meat. Don't love it and pet it and make it work, or ride or race then kill it when you're done. People don't play with cows and then eat them.
oh, and no, I don't like zoos and it's unfortunate that they are the only place keeping some endangered species alive...keep in mind that it was most likely humans that caused what ever is going extinct to be going extinct in the first place. Sad irony.
and I don't really agree that horses like running on race tracks. why do they all have ulcers if they are so happy. of course horses like to run and have fun, but run for humans to make money. I doubt they would choose it, but they don't get a choice. Difference in opinion.
