My point was (and I realize you think those videos I was talking about are propaganda) that the exposure to slaughter I had made it seem like abuse. I should have clarified. I just knew what I saw at that point. I am sorry you took that so personally. The videos made me sick and reactive. Yes I *AM* emotional about the issue. Who wants to see that kind of thing happening? I was just surprised that more people didn't think that it was horrible.
Maybe things are different in WI, but I don't think that they hire minimum wage employees. One of my close friends who used to work here is now at our biggest shelter. She makes a whole heck of a lot more money than I do and mostly spends the day doing euths.
As far as people freaking out about dead bodies, you'd be surprised. I get 'what happens to the body?' pretty frequently, and people get genuinely upset about them being in a freezer. Not sure what they expect.
