Oh wow. That's very witty. You must have made it up because I don't think I or anyone has ever heard it before.

If you believe in killing animals for food, that is your business. But to mock those of us who are out to help defenseless animals is just wrong.

And I don't think Dusty Bottoms was trying to be witty. I do believe he's talking about putting a live animal into boiling water.

... which is what happens to lobsters when you wanna eat them. And perfectly relevant to the topic (or rumor) at hand.

Don't kid yourself, Infinitum. If a cow ever got the chance, he'd eat you and everyone you care about.

Maybe. The source hasn't been given.

No. Because even if what I posted does turn out to be a rumor, I posted it thinking it was real. My intentions are not to lie or spread rumors. Animal cruelty is a topic that effects me so I decided to talk about it in Free Your Mind, simple as that.

Yes you are right about putting live lobsters into boiling water. I wasn't referring to Dusty Bottoms when I made the witty remark though, I was referring to hawkman who wrote "People for Eating Tasty Animals."

And I think Dusty Bottoms was trying to mock the topic by offering "lobster." Thats why I quoted him in that post also.

Where did you hear about this, Infinitum? A quick google search reveals absolutely nothing on the subject.

You are right, I just searched for it also but couldn't find it. So it does seem like a rumor, and I really hope it is. But nevertheless, cows and other animals are mistreated while being raised.

I've seen pictures of cows and other animals who are kept in small boxes so they can't even turn around, given no food and so they end up eating their own manure, I just don't see how people can be this cruel. And no, this one is not a rumor, i'm sure of it.

Yes, these kinds of things are true. But if you want to be taken seriously, you need to make sure what you post is actually true.

If they can't turn around how can they eat their own manure ?

If the suppliers want to maximize yields they will feed their animals.

Sounds like PETA nonsense again to me.

Veal Piccatta......yum!

Yes I know. At that time I thought it was true and I didn't bother to double check and instead I just posted it since I was so upset.

Well maybe the ones who actually eat their own manure can manage to turn around. But I think we should look at the bigger picture. And yes, I can understand that if suppliers want to maximize yields they will feed their animals. But animals are starved and do eat their own manure, so these kind of things do happen.

Your last comment was just pathetic. I understand if you think it is right to eat meat but why do you need to write something like that? Are you trying to prove something?

Here is a website I found that reveals the cruelty that all sorts of animals go through in the slaughterhouse, including adult and baby cows.

One thing that I have never understood is how people can be criminally punished for cruetly towards cats, dogs and other household pets while cruelty to cows, pigs, chickens and other meat producing animals is completely okay.
