"Minion says euthanasia via blunt force is fast and pain-free when done correctly and that its use is approved by NPPC."

Oh, of course, bludgeoning an animal to death is always done correctly and for the best interest of the animal. What a ridiculous statement, comment and defense. Agribusiness is nothing if not cruel to animals. Growing up on a farm, I always knew where our food came from, but my grandfather and my father, as well as neighboring farms, treated those animals with care, respect and even tenderness. I can't count the number of times a local veterinarian was called, in the middle of the night, to come provide medical care to one of our animals who had fallen sick. They weren't murdered, they were healed and treated with compassion. An attribute lost with the advent of the mega farms and the demise of the family farm where one could raise a family on a single farm. Those days are long gone, but not forgotten, and well, I hope a special place in the beyond is reserved for those such as these who treat animals as commodities with no consideration at all for the pain, suffering and inhumane way they are treated.

What people don't see God does, and believe me he will not take it lightly!

Funny, blunt force trauma and humane just don't seem to connect for me...

This is just wrong. We need petitions that tells the judge we want charges. Need to refile the charges under another judge. One with compassion.

Those are sick subhumans who inflict and make innocent animals suffer in agonizing pain. I hope that these morons too should die with an extreme painful death. What goes around should come around to them too.

If blunt force was "humane" we would be killing people on death row with a hammer blow to the head.

If human beings would just leave other animals in peace, this wouldn't be an issue!

Many thanks to the animal welfare organizations who are doing great work! Please donate and help such organizations grow. (I donate to seven animal rights organizations.) Go Veg, and speak up for abused animals, please. There is no excuse for such violence. Thank you.

In an interview a guy from the pork consul said that gestation cages protect the piglets and that sows are very vicious, you would be too if you were crammed into tiny spacing with no room to move.THey never saw the need to do this 100years ago because they were allowed outside.
