How to Help “Downers”

Gene Baur, President and Co-founder of Farm Sanctuary, exposes the cruel reality behind "downers", animals that are too sick or weak to walk to the kill floor. These poor creatures are often subjected to extreme cruelty, including being dragged, kicked, prodded, and beaten to get them to the kill floor. Because of the pressure of concerned consumers and in response to a petition submitted by Farm Sanctuary requesting that the USDA extend the "no downer" regulations to pigs, sheep, goats, and other animals, the agency announced that it will accept public comment on the issue.

It is appalling that even the weakest and sickest of God's farmed animals are not shown any compassion or mercy! Consumers need to face the brutal reality they are supporting and decide to make a change of heart by transitioning to a plant-based diet, which clearly shows that good stewards of God's Creation do not approve of cruelty to God's animals.
