“Any farmer has most likely put down animals and done it in a humane manner.” Hope this isn’t thread-hijacking: since we moved to the middle of nowhere, we’ve met many farmers. They seem a lot smarter than the average bear and have so many basic competencies including animal husbandry; very capable people, these. (Not to mention gutsy—how they cope with screwball cows is something I’ll never “get.”)

The article is meant to be sensational and portray these guys as monsters. Its all pretty typical media response as the push the Humane Society as the only authority on treatment of animals.

People seem more outraged at the killing than the method. The Humane Society does killings like this every day.
