Torture is used only in some slaughterhouses? No, we can bet that it is used in all slaughterhouses! You would think that people would want the treatment of all creatures, especially the ones they want to eat! to be treated humanely. But that just ain't so. They don't care and they will do anything, and I mean anything to stop the public from getting this information. Because I believe that if the public knows of these barbaric acts, they might actually demand that change happens. But then that would mean that the ones that EAT these creatures would have to see them as living, breathing creatures, and not something that grows in the ground (factory farming wants you to think they grow from the ground). They have families like us and are the only ones to actually live within their own environment. Not like man who just can't seem to do this. Always wanting to change something.
Let's change the lives of all creatures for the better. They don't deserve this, and I would bet that God never, never wanted this for HIS CREATURES! DO THE RIGHT THING!
you know I was actually going to reply back to your boos, but then I thought my words would be lost on a pack of boos like you all. so eat your flesh and keep on killing. It only shows just how selfish and morally wrong you all are. At some point in your sorry life you were supposed to use your brains but it looks like you just don't have one. So continue with your torture and killing, only makes what I say stronger!
nucanuck...it is out of balance. I have to laugh when I read flyingpurple... comment, what about all of the tortured flesh you find in your grocery store? why not eat that? because man knows only of one thing, to kill. We use all creatures for things that should make your stomachs turn, but it doesn't. What makes your stomach turn? oh yeah the idea that you would go mad if all flesh were removed from this earth, what would you eat then!
Man is taking all of the land and we make it seem as if the poor, innocent creatures are doing this. The fact remains, we are the predator of all species. It doesn't matter if it is on the ground, in the sea or air, we will kill them all.
As for joneses going to starve??? I don't eat flesh I said, and I don't eat fish, and one would say I am probably healthier than most of you here giving these comments.
I could stay here and comment forever but the fact remains, people don't want to hear because they are afraid of not being able to kill and eat flesh. It is a sad world to see such torture of any creature since they have done nothing to us. We on the other hand should be called the animal since, well we just kill and kill!
We keep hearing those who use the same old excuse...there are to many of them?? The real truth is there are to many of us!! We have taken so much from others, their land, their food, their water and we keep on taking. When does man decide he has had enough?
Leave these deer alone. Let them live in peace and stop this stupid and uneducated excuse...there are to many of them. As for the comment that they are starving, when did you hunt one that was to skinny for you to eat? Oh and before anyone makes the stupid comment 'I bet you eat flesh' I don't eat any flesh or fish. I feel that these creatures have the right to be here and without the fear of us.
I love the comment in this article that they are being harvested?? They don't grow from the ground or trees, it makes it seem that they are just something that you grow in the ground? Strange. Or are you trying to make it seem that they are not living, breathing creatures?
Stop the killings and if we are so intelligent why not learn how to hold down the numbers of these creatures in a more humane way, and that way these people who seem to want to use the excuse there are to many of them, at least they won't be using this excuse. The real truth is they just want to kill. This is what man uses when he thinks he needs to take care of something...he just kills!
Why is it that we always hear that there is overpopulation of any species. Oh yeah, it is easy to convince people to have them killed if they use that excuse!
It is like saying that God made a mistake and man who is so intelligent will take care of the problem for him. The only overpopulation on this earth is man. We have taken over every living space so that these creatures and others have no where to go. Keep using this stupid and unintelligent excuse...there are to many of them! There are to many of us and the fact that the only thing man can come up with to 'control others' is to kill them.
We should be better than this...DO THE RIGHT THING!
I moved here 4 years ago. My husband and I went to visit the Hamilton Mall and to my dismay, I saw the pet store. Being an animal activist, I went into the store and the conditions were so bad I spoke with the sales person and asked to speak with the manager. He in turn told me it wasn't that bad but they would clean up the cages.
I waited 2 weeks to go back and the conditions were no better. This has been going on for a long time now. We all know that these pet stores work with breeders who care nothing for these innocent creatures, and all I have to say is CLOSE THEM DOWN! Then go after the breeders and stop them. If there were laws in place that would protect these dogs and other little creatures we wouldn't be asking them to shut this store down.
If this store has been doing this for 4 years, they will continue to treat these creatures this way. They don't care, otherwise you would see a lot different attitudes and better conditions for these creatures. There are hundreds of stores like these where puppies and other little creatures live in horrible conditions before they are adopted. And their lives were hardly kind before they got to the store. Mostly they are sick and some will even die. The only way to stop this is to shut down stores like this.
There is an overpopulation of dogs and the idea that we need breeders is somewhat selfish. There are so many dogs and cats being killed because there isn't enough people to care for all of these innocents. These creatures don't deserve this!
I am shocked. I was reading the paper this morning and after reading this article I see an article that was speaking about how to keep your cell phones from freezing?? What is wrong with us??? What about how to keep your poor, innocent dogs, cats and other creatures from freezing to death? These are living, breathing creatures who are at our mercy and we worry about our metal phones from freezing?
I cannot not understand how people can chain a poor dog out in some of the worst conditions and expect them to survive, or maybe it is that they don't care if they survive or not.
Next time, maybe it would be good for the paper to educate people about the conditions that dogs and cats have to live in and worry more about getting the info out about taking your creatures in the house so that they don't freeze to DEATH. At least your phone won't die or suffer from freezing!
If it is hard for workers to work in these conditions, just think about how painful it is for any dog or cat to have to live in these conditions day and night!
Ms. Kearns, we shouldn't forget that when President Bush took office, for the first time in history the US was hit. There is no other president that had this happen while taking office. And we have not had it happen again. But if we remember, this happened because Clinton didn't do what he should have! He had eight years to try and stop this, and he did nothing. Of course we will read that this isn't true, but we all know that things don't just happen over night! It takes years of doing nothing or turning your head away from the facts!
As for Obama, well I think I have listened to what my parents had to say and I think what we are seeing is another great depression, something that has happened before. So at least he has some history to go by when trying not to make mistakes.
Bush had NONE to look back at.
We will have to wait and see what Obama does, I mean everything that he first promised is now in the trash can, so what does he have up his sleeves now! We will be watching!
