GENERAL
Downed animals are already suffering. Why should they be subjected to more pain and suffering by being kept alive and/or transported to be killed. Please do the humane thing and euthanize them immediately. Consumers will object if the use of materials from downed cattle reoccurs now in birds, pigs and companion animals after it has been prohibited in feed for ruminants since 1997. As a consumer I oppose the use of non- ambulatory cattle in animal feed.
