<div class="quote-block"><b>Bull Escapes Slaughterhouse, Scares People On The Streets</b><br><br><br><br>

Dalian, China (AHN) - For many people who do not know, athletic skills could become vital in our daily defense efforts. Residents of Dalian, a city in China, recently found that out for themselves after running a mini-marathon with a bull that escaped from the slaughterhouse last weekend.<br><br><br><br>
The animal successfully escaped from the slaughterhouse before appearing on the streets. Seemingly confused by the traffic, it stood in the middle of the road, stopping traffic and examining the cars that lined up behind it.</div>

I don't know if this was in the news or not.....maybe locally.<br><br>
My husband has some friends in Emporia, KA. We visit the city occasionally when going to my FIL's house. His friends both work at IBP...which is right in the middle of town!! They told us of a cow once escaping and making it to the Wal-mart parking lot. Instead of bringing it back, they shot it right there, in view of everyone!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/no.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":no:"> I would have freak out!<br><br><br><br>
Maybe that cow was lucky. (not really) I think he died a more humane way than those poor cows going through the line, which is <b>nothing close</b> to humane!!

I just noticed this. Further proof of the f***ed up attitude that prevails among omnis: The animal is obviously male, right? Yet the writer of the article kept insisting on referring to him as "it". As in, "it's" just future food. Not a living creature experiencing terror. Just food.

Yeah that pisses me off all the time. 'It' is what you use for objects, implies that he wasn't alive to begin with. Poor bully, they can be such lovely guys, usually though, people treat them like s**t because they're afraid of them so they act like s**ts back. No surprise there.

I can only imagine how the bull felt while he was being slaughtered after all of that. I wonder if he was one of the ones that is still alive while being skinned. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:"> oh god, stuff like this makes me sick. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/undecided.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":-/">
