I see little or no difference in the value of the life of a cow and the value of the life of a horse.
should be the end of the story. Because if you see no harm in killing a cow, then how is a horse any different? You can bond to a cow just
as easily as a horse. Most
can't get past the whole 'horse slaughter' thing solely because they've been around horses
and not cows
. Walk a mile in a cow-lover's shoes before one goes and make assumptions (not saying anyone personally is, but anyone who says that the life of a cow is worthless
when compared to a horse). I don't think anyone has blatently said it, but I've wondered a few times if that's where they were heading.
sad that innocent horses/animals/whatever are slaughtered. It really is. But they are put here for many reasons. One to feed us. Our bodies need protein. And really, if you don't want to eat meat, and think it's horrible, then by all means don't!
I feel one is just wasting the animal when they turn their nose up at it (not saying anyone is). Like the whole fur coat thing all over again. I guess PETA never stopped to think that paint-balling a coat would mean that that
life would no longer be enjoyed, but would instead be making that life go to waste.
We already have horse slaughter banned in the USA, that is a huge step.
Now they are all going down to Mexico where they truly WILL
be mistreated. Lovely! I guess I should ask this: If slaughter was done in a more humane manner, would it be more or less tolerable?
Someone answer that. I'm curious to know.
