The cruelty knows no bounds

It goes on and on, relentlessly. Our mistreatment of animals will come back to haunt us.

Authorities are investigating the deaths of dozens of Australian cows believed to have suffocated on a flight from Melbourne to Kazakhstan.

    1. It is appalling Keith. Bad enough that we eat them, at least they can have a happy short life.

  3. Perhaps they should have travelled First Class instead of Cattle Class. I travel Economy and that's almost as bad, stuffy, no room to stretch out the legs...

    Now that you're all horrified at me, yes, I agree it is bad. Live export should be banned. those poor animals must have felt such awful fear.

    1. Fen, we have to reduce our meat consumption to smaller amounts. Meat need to go back to being a bit of luxury.

    2. we need to eat local, everyone does, then they won't need to export these poor animals.

  5. Even the fact that there's a 'reportable death level' is horrendous !

    1. It is Grace. All animal deaths should be reported, whatever type of transport they are in.
