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. It will also increase sickeness in humans. Please do the right thing and continue to ban the consumption of downed animals. Thanks you!
