GENERAL
As a consumer in the United States, I oppose the use of non-ambulatory cattle in animal feed. Allowing sick, non-ambulatory cattle to be killed for animal feed will result in unnecessary pain and suffering. Downed animals should be humanely euthanized immediately, not kept alive and/or transported to be killed for rendering.
