Yes, there are lots of PETA videos floating around of horses and cows and pigs falling out of trailers because they were injured beyond belief and/or so weak they couldn't hold themselves up anymore. As mentioned, I'm sure some are like that, but if all it typically takes is a write up and a bunch of fines for people to change their ways? It's amazing. I'm sure there are also some very abusive plant workers, but is that any different from the average abusive pet owner?
EDIT: Everyone keeps replying before me!
I feel the same way about abortion. In some cases, it really is better. Another example is Downe Syndrome. They can test for that really early now, so the parent(s) have the option to abort. Why knowingly bring a sick baby into the world? I am pro-life in a way, if a 15 year old girl wants to keep her baby, than more power to her, but I am also pro-choice. You should have the right to choose.
Anywho, a lot of people hate it when we relate horses to babies and whatnot, but it really is very similar. Now let's hope we don't get bashed, haha. o_O
