I don't want to hear any "It's horrible and cruel" or " Heck yeah we need it"........I want to know what it was like for anyone that lived close to one. I live in TN and it is looking like we have a very high possibility of having one here close to me. It has already flown through Senate and what not....
I just need honest and forth right answers, stories, or personal issues. Also, please don't give me something that you heard from the internet or a friend of the third cousin twice removed and so forth. I just want to have a better idea of what I am going to have to deal with if this becomes reality. It is hard to find anything out there that isn't stereotyped one way or the other....or that doesn't make me want to vomit.
I own two horses....a mare and a gelding. My property is not accessible by any roads. You would have to drive past the house to get to the pasture/barn. Is there any issues with horse theft rising in areas with slaughter plants??? Any security measures you would suggest such as tattoos, micro chipping, flood lights, or anything around the barn?
What about property values??? Would they be affected if the plant was close to the property??
I really don't know a lot about these issues or what exactly other issues would be. Any ideas or suggestions are welcomed. But please, be polite, respectful, and considerate to everyone else.
