Meat factories can still chop the heads off chickens, right?
So long as it’s quick & clean, that wouldn’t be considered torture or prolonged suffering. The little I know about this ban, I support it.
There is a difference between slaughtering for food purposes vs slaughtering for someone’s sadistic pleasure, or allowing an animal in one’s care to suffer due to the owner’s negligence or lack of compassion.
I support some wild horses to be sold as food, but they should be transported with care, not dumped like firewood into some trailer and just carted along in great discomfort and stress.
Only with the chickens’ permission.
Like college dorms. No fowl play allowed.
We are of like mind in these matters my FRiend.
Sure, death is ok, just no serious injury.
Too bad this won't apply to conservative Americans, or those Antifa protesters would be too scared to do their mayhem.
I guess I am going to have to send Trump all the raccoons I catch so he can figure out what to do with them
Drowning is the usual way nuisance animal guys get rid of skunks to avoid getting sprayed
find someone that is cruel to animals and you find the person willing to do anything in the pursuit of power... a good man abhors the sight of senseless cruelty those that are lesser ignore it when confronted with its reality and evil takes pleasure in the thought of committing it.
god bless all that realize this truth.
Goodby to hunting, fishing, trapping, rodent poisoming.
Creeping gradualism in elevation of animals to God-like status, eventually. More PETA bullying.
Can I shoot squirrels chewing into my gables and destroying my attic? Or will I be forced to pay an arm and a leg for a licensed exterminator? Huh?
Pennsylvania rifle season for deer begins in five days...this better not be used against hunters!
The problem is the definition of cruel varies from individual to individual
To some people who think eating meat is wrong there is no way to kill an animal they won’t count as cruel
This should end Halal meats
