How barbaric and unethical must our treatment of living beings become? Downed animals have obviously suffered tremendous conditions of our now inhumane structures of factory farming....being too sick to even move, running with disease and illness, we are going to let these beings into the line of feed? Disease effects every cell of a living being, from the outer layer of skin, down to the bone. Our disease as humans is our total lack of regard for a living, breathing being that can see, smell, hear and feel pain! Enough!
It is completely repulsive! It is totally out of the line of our duty towards God. Animals were not meant for this kind of suffering that factory farming has inflicted upon them. It is wrong! How corrupt must we become?
These animals must be humanely euthanized, it is our duty to them, to the other animals, and to human kind. When the dollar becomes greater than the ethical treatment of a life.....human and animal, then we must step back and review our moral values. Please, let downed animals be downded. Let them be.
May we take the greed and turn it into respect and humanely euthanize God's creatures. They are not ours!
