And you think horse slaughter is bad...

It's stuff like this that makes me so mad when people freak out about horse slaughter. How many people out there can cry for the horses while shoving a hamburger down their gullet. Do you realize how viciously abused livestock is because everyone is so busy trying to ban horse slaughter? Horses are easily the best treated animals in the entire livestock treatment area. Why? Because people try to give them a voice. Why don't we get this much outrage over abused cows?


I'm really not into the whole "ban milk and beef" thing. Just like I'm against banning horse slaughter. We need stricter rules and regulations, not an all out ban because it's simply never going to happen.

It's been a long time since something made me feel this sick. I don't understand how human beings this twisted and screwed up in the head can walk amongst us. As much as I don't agree with the website posting it, this isn't some Mexican PETA video about illegal horse slaughter trying to convince you the US and Canada treats animals like that. This is real and in your backyard - you can't fake this crap.

I agree. And while we're at it, give a voice to the pigs, and the chickens, and the calves and lambs. I, personally, am a vegetarian. I just can't bring myself to eat a face. I know animal slaughter will never stop, but it can be better, it can be less painful. An animal shouldn't have to live a terrible life just so we can kill it and grill it. They feel fear and pain just as well as we do. A cow that spends its life in the pasture munching grass, and then quietly led to a place where it can be shot in the head with one bullet, never feeling a bit of pain or panic, will taste just as well - if not better than - the chemical-fed cow that was beaten and died slowly and painfully. This is all, quite literally, food for thought.

I saw the footage today on the CNN News and I was appauled and absolutely disgusted and enraged.

I got so angry, I wanted to tie those jerks up and beat the crap out of them.

All those men who were caught on camera, were charged big time in the court of law, and are spending minimally up to 90 days in prison.

I would love to take a pitch fork to that coward!!!!!

My FIL owns and runs a small Dairy Farm - and NEVER does he hurt the cattle. He is a HUGE Polish guy, and if he ever saw anything like that happen to his cows, that person would be dead before the police got there. I would LOVE for the farmer in this video, meet my FIL face to face.

This guy is a piss poor dairy farmer and has some mental health issues himself but the young man in the video is way messed up. That kid is going to find himself in prison before too long. No dairy farmer that wants to make a living is going to abuse his cows like that. That is an extreme case of abuse. I have never seen anyone abuse cattle of any kind this way.

There is nothing the US can do about Horse Slaughter. It is taking place mainly in Mexico and Canada and being sold over seas to Europe, Asia, etc where they eat horse eat.

I understand where you are coming from, I did the horse slaughter topic in my Speech and Debate class all last year. I'm going to copy & paste some of my speeches into another reply....Just a sec

Okay maybe not. Apparantly my files don't really answer your question. Oh well, I'm off to post them in a new thread then. I want input

My point wasn't specifically about the video itself. I understand this is an extreme case, however, it shows what CAN go on behind closed doors. I am not against slaughter nor dairy whatsoever, what I get annoyed with is people who preach about horse slaughter and yet have no issues with eating other animals.

It's just very hypocritical in nature, if you're for one, you should be for all, such as riccil0ve. You can't sit and preach to people about the horrors of slaughter and how we're not horselovers when you do nothing to change the treatment of actual livestock.

It just gets me hot when people somehow think one animal is more deserving of humane treatment then the next.
