To Whom It May Concern:
I am totally opposed to allowing non-ambulatory animals to be killed and used in animal feed. Downed animals should be humanely euthanized immediately, not kept alive and/or transported to be killed for such purpose. No civilized society would treat injured animals in this way and no health-conscious society would allow them to be used as feed. The suggestion itself is barbaric.
