I'm not wanting to debate this but, you asked a question.
You may know that but does the calf? Does it understand why it gets electric shocks to make it go where workers want it to go? Does it understand that its throat will be cut and its blood drained, its carcass eviserated (sp?) and decapitated? The question here is not what YOU the farmer or the abbatoir workers know or feel but what the animals know and feel.From the day that calf is born it is know that it will be killed for food consumption some day.
So what is your purpose for being? Eating them? There is no PURPOSE for being that is outdated, outmoded, religious banter and has nothing to do with anything. Humans only started eating meat once they could figure out how to kill animals without getting killed in the process. So what was a calf's purpose BEFORE this time? What is a calf's purpose in a Hindu nation then if not to be killed? And why does a calf's 'purpose' differ in a western nation?That is it's whole purpose for being.
Damn straight its an insult but its certainly not ignorant.You may not like it but to compare those people in that industry to serial killers and cat torchurers is an ignorant insult as far as I'm concerned.
Congratulations, you're contributing to suffering.By the way, I'm a farmer myself. I have some insight into abattoirs here.
That's not going to happen unless you show a complete disregard for the principles of this board and the people on it.Yes I know I'll probably get banned for this.
my guess on this one is that the difference lies in the fact or what seems to be a fact that killing animals in a violent manner (such as decapitation, the removal of organs)seems to be a lead in to more violent crimes, such as murder(this is debateable topic as some people see the death of animals equal to that of a human being.. I do not however..I find a stark distinction between the death of a cat and the death of say my child), where as I am pretty sure that saying killing cows or eating meat is not such a seeming predecessor to such behavior....Originally posted by thefragile77
Seriously though, how do they see this person killing cats as being different to eating cows? I wonder if they even see the similarity...or is it ok because they didn't actually kill the cow?
Do you have any idea what your cute, sweet little cat is doing to the birds and rodents in your neighborhood. It makes the cat killer seem tame in comparison.Originally posted by FafaFrappy
It sickens, frightens, and disturbs me that people this sick are out there! Especially since I have a cat that LOVES to be outside. Problem being, that if we don't let him out (he hates litter boxes) he won't use a box, and he'll start chewing on stuff (cords on appliances, etc). Those are his little tantrums. And he knows he's not supposed to go outside of the property, but does anyway, and knows when he's in trouble. I just hope no one that demented is running around my neighborhood. Although, around halloween, there have been cat mutilation problems.
