| I vehemently oppose the inclusion 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 not to mention the unknown downstream effects of feeding possibly infected material to other animals. Downed animals should be humanely euthanized immediately, not kept alive and/or transported to be killed for rendering.
