Signed & Shared! I don't know how anyone can eat lamb on Easter or any time for that matter if they would actually be a witness to such suffering by watching a video of the horrifying cruelty that is inflicted on these animals! If they did, it would make them sick to their stomachs and a lamb chop just wouldn't be worth putting these animals through such extreme suffering!

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

Already signed this one yesterday. No animals should be killed for an Easter feast. It would be better if everyone went vegan instead.
