TX A&M fire academy has a large animal rescue course coming up in september

I'm so glad the bull has a name now! Thank you for bringing attention to these hellish transports.

A recent study by WSPA confirms that transport of farmed animals is just as bad or worse in Canada: For details see http://www.humanespot.org/node/3726.

Excerpt: "Approximately two to three million animals arrive dead each year at slaughterhouses. From October 2008 to January 2009, a total of 634,634 chickens, 11,439 turkeys, 3,396 pigs, and 153 cattle died during transport."

Thanks for your article.you are doing great job of drawing attention towards the animal safety.Farm animals are very important in our life.

Wow a nasty story - hard to get the thought of them on fire out of my head however the slaughter house is just as bad.
