It does look like the way the animal is treated prior to slaughter is pretty awful.
It looked pretty horrible how I was treating my old man while he was sick too.
Things taken out of context can be horrible to see.
Considering the videos you are using for reference were put together by people that want you to be horrified it is not shocking that you find them to be horrific.
Once an animal is dead, I don't care what happens to the body. Dead is dead. It's the way they are treated prior to and during the life ending process that concerns me.
I totally agree. I do not know anyone who does not totally agree.
I am also sure you are aware that an animal injected with euthanasia solution cannot be eaten (it's not supposed to go to a landfill either, one of the local crematoriums just got sued up the wazoo for that, apparently a bald eagle ate some remains in a landfill...and died).
Yes, well aware of that fact. I stated in my post that cats and dogs would be killed some other way. You must have missed that line.
Carcasses do go to landfills now. Landfills are not just big open pits of trash. At least not modern landfills. (That is why the commercials about stuff 'getting in my drinking water' make me laugh.)
Trash is dumped and buried, dumped and buried, dumped and buried. It is a constant process of dirt being put over and mixed in.
The shelter I am talking about has a huge crematorium. They fill a truly huge freezer and then do a mass cremation.
I only know about the landfill taking carcasses now because a bit back a friend lost their horse and we learned that there is no local rendering company anymore. One of the options was to have the body picked up and taken to the landfill.
Still, I would prefer a kind stranger to some pi$$ed off minimum wage employee ...
Most of the employees at the shelter make minimum wage or are there because they are doing community service.
As far as eating dogs and cats, YOU might not have a problem with it, but I can promise you that even mentioning it to some of my more frou frou clients would cause fainting or worse.
Those same clients probably ignore the fact that the shelters euthanize large quantities of cats and dogs every year.
To them it is a none issue.
I didn't say pro-slaughter was pro-abuse.
Then what did you mean by these comments?
I just find it interesting that some of the people who are pro-slaughter on this thread will jump right down the throat of someone who is doing something that might be considered neglect or abuse.
Double standards apply.
My personal opinion is that some people can justify anything to assuage guilt.
