ALL animals know pain and joy and ALL deserve the right to live. I'm siding with the animal activists and not the inspectors who seem to be looking the other way.

I don't trust the USDA, I believe government agencies cover up too much. I believe Vanderbilt University is cruel and inhumane in it's treatment of animals.

They are upset about a piglet and although he life/death of this piglet is so important there are so many who suffer and die. When will it end? humans are supposed to be intelligent yet if we are not compassionate what does it matter?
