Animal Cruelty

I am so glad that the world is finally taking notice and doing something about Animal Cruelty. The video is in the right column.

God gave us dominion over the animals and the earth. We're to be good stewards over them. We should treat animals humanely up until the time they are to be prepared as the food we eat. It breaks my heart to see these animals treated so inhumanely. Animals have feelings just like the rest of us. They experience fear, joy, sadness, uncomfortableness (e.g., being too cold or too hot, hunger, allergies, etc.), pain, etc. I hope more people will realize this and hold meat, poultry and seafood plants accountable for the way they conduct business with regard to their treatment of animals. (The fisheries are guilty of senselessly killing dolphins, turtles and other animals by drowning them in their nets. There are devices which could remedy this problem.)

I tried checking your video out, but it required a comcast account.

Rachael, thanks for the heads up. I have linked to a different site with article and video. You should be able to view it now.

Very sad indeed. Hopefully these companies will institute better training for their workers. I have to wonder, though, if their management did not encourage such behavior in the first place.
