    That's a good point.... So many people think that hunting is more cruel which is backwards. But I wouldn't eat deer these days because of CWD.

    You and I have very different definitions of torture then.

    For reference I am referring to the part in red when I say torture, more so the mind, but also the body.

    Well I would imagine eveeryone has their own definition of turture IMO I've never seen a case of it in a slaughter plant the one in town here kills 850 to 1000 head of cattle a day. Is it pretty? Hardly theres nothing pretty about killing, bleeding, and gutting any animal but if you eat and or buy meat you support it.

    I eat cow, pig & deer that my husband kills, but I don't own them as pets so I guess that makes it easier for me not to think about how they are killed. I love my horse and the thought of someone slaughtering her is very upsetting to me. I wouldn’t want my dogs or cats slaughtered either but I wouldn’t care so much about the chickens. :)

    Personally I can't imagine slaughtering any of my pets regardless of species I've had pet cows, sheep, horses, pigs, even a pet rooster all lived out their life and get buried in the farm cemetary. But the ones that are livestock doesn't bother me to eat and or sell for slaughter also regardless of species including horses.

    I must agree with reining girl. I hate the fact that they do it but since the slaughter industry was shut down in the US it has done more harm than good. There is a lot of horses that are suffering now.
