Issue Areas/Comments
My family and I wish to express our opposition to your plan to use downed (sick and non-ambulatory) animals in feed for other animals. The treatment of these downed animals is cruel and inhumane--we believe that they should be humanely euthanized rather than subjected to more suffering. We would not have any confidence in the safety of eating animals which have been feeding on other sick or diseased animals. We urge you to cease this practice permanently!
