"Killing an animal is not the same thing as mowing the grass. A life
ends. That's something you take seriously. What does the word
'sacred' mean? You do not treat it as an ordinary thing. Killing
cattle is not the same as running grain through a mill."
my opinion, one of the greatest animal-welfare problems is the
physical abuse of livestock during transportation.... Typical abuses
I have witnessed with alarming frequency are; hitting, beating, use
of badly maintained trucks, jabbing of short objects into animals,
and deliberate cruelty."
