why? So the abuse can continue. Do you know who watches those slaughterhouses? The USDA. The USDA is in it for the money only.They could care less how the animals are treated.

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.

This is not a valid arguement.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Yes. Just like I am for euthanasia, humane slaughter of livestock, etc.

That does not equal being for animal abuse. I have spent countless hours assisting vets, working in shelters, walking dogs, and homing/rehabbing animals. It's quite the opposite.

Is the system perfect? No. But I would rather see an imperfect system within our borders that we can then regulate than allow animals to be butchered by non-experienced hands or starved.

as long as the USDA is in charge the abuse is not going to end.They could care less if the horses are getting to the stickers while being fully conscious.

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.

yes I do care, but you obviously are not getting what I'm saying.
