Have We Turned Cows Into Cannibals?

The factory farming industry in our country has shown a lack of ethics and disrespect toward humans, animals and the environment that should be appalling to all of us. In this article, Dr. Will Tuttle exposes one of the many outrageous standard practices of this industry: what cows are fed.

Everyone knows that cows are natural herbivores that thrive on grass. However, in order to reduce costs and raise their profits, the factory farming industry decided to ignore this simple fact and started feeding cows an unnatural “enriched” diet containing the rendered flesh and organs of fish, chickens, turkeys, pigs, and other animals, including dogs and cats who are euthanized every year, and the road-kill and other carcasses collected by governmental agencies.

Not surprisingly, they also feed cows the ground-up slaughterhouse by-products of other cows turning them not just into carnivores, but into cannibals as well. To read the article, please visit A Poignant Riddle: Are Cows Herbivores or Omnivores?:

Going against nature’s ways, and therefore God’s ways, should be a red flag that something has terribly gone wrong with agribusiness with devastating consequences for all Creation. Those that support this industry are accomplices of the exploitation of farmed animals and all the unethical practices this entails. Our Christian faith revolves around the principles of justice, compassion, mercy and love. There is no room for clearly avoidable cruelty, devastation and sickness.
