Issue Areas/Comments
I am writing to oppose the use of non-ambulatory animals and downed animals in the use of 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.
