I am strongly opposed to the use of downed animals as animal food/feed. These animals suffer enough as it is to become the food that our society consumes. But to take the ones that are sick and are already in so much pain and torture them more just so they can be used to feed other animals is absolutely horrible and disgusting. It would be better if they were properly and humanely euthanized so that they don't have to suffer anymore. The pain and suffering they go through is completely unnecessary and it's unbelievably wrong to prolong that suffering. If there is no ban on this, it will give farmers absolutely no incentive to take better care of their animals and why should they be allowed to put these animals through as much hell as possible? They already torture them to kill them for food, but please, please do not allow them to torture the sick ones even further. It is not fair.
