How heartbreaking. How these poor animals suffered is devastating. I care more about the way these animals died than I do about their loss in damages.

It's no surprise to me. Yet another reason why the meat industry needs to be isolated and removed from our planet (get rid of it) "Factory farming" is a perfect example of destruction and evil on the rampage. Can people really still not see that everything about it is a sickening perversity. I'm not shocked anymore when I here about the Death, Torture, Slavery and Abuse on our animals at these places. Animals ask only one thing of us ...."Love, Kindness and Understanding." and what do we do lead them to their death.
