this made me so angry.. honestly it's nothing but selfish greed and pointless deaths

and this gave me a glimmer of hope for the world . just a glimmer tho... because after reading the links on this page it says it's mostly due to growing exports and higher cost..

I had no idea per capita beef consumption had declined 25% since 1980. Has it been replaced with chicken/pork increases though I see that those are down significantly since 2007 too.

It just grieves the soul. Evil people always seem to find a way to continue their dark deeds.
My hope is in the future generation; I believe there are those who will put a stop to this madness someday.
