I didn't say pro-slaughter was pro-abuse. I was just interested in where the line was. It does look like the way the animal is treated prior to slaughter is pretty awful.
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 knew I should have kept my opinion to myself, I usually do because I hate internet debate. People take everything personally, etc. At least I learned my lesson. *I* didn't personally oppose slaughter in the US, while I might not have liked it, I think this current situation is worse, but hopefully it will be corrected.
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).
I've worked in shelters as well, and we still have clients that would prefer to drop their pet off to put down. I try to make it as easy and gentle as possible for the animal, as I am sure you did too. Still, I would prefer a kind stranger to some pi$$ed off minimum wage employee who thought it was funny to miss a few times when trying to hit me with a bolt gun, or sawed away at my spinal cord (Yes I'm sure these were Mexican slaughter houses) while laughing and talking to friends.
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.
