This is insane! When will our so-called civilized society wake up and stop treating animals like objects to be sold for money, without any regard for the welfare of the animals? I was told of a trucking survey that was conducted to see how cattle were treated during shipping. I could not believe it! Some of these cattle were shipped by truck where the temperatures reached 45 degree Celsius and they were without food or water for up to 48 hours. My blood pressure just went up again. In Europe the rules are a lot stricter concerning animal treatment, and North America needs to implement some of them too.


dear God, I'm a newbie to this site and immediately fell in love with your piggie story --I love pigs.!-- and your donkey story --also love donkeys--so then I read this story about the "cost" of fresh eggs....oh, dear God when did we "enlightened" humans become so cruel and uncaring...I'm crying now, and while I appreciate your "learning me" of the things that go on, oh this hurts..bytheby, I am the proud mommie of 3 rescued friends - 1 dog taken from my neighbors who were using him as pitbull bait, and 2 cats - 1 shelter cat and 1 kitten rescued from my work at a hospital...for those who don't know for some reason hospital are considered ideal "dumping grounds" for unwanted pets, so most hospitals have colonies of cats and most of the places I have worked at also have groups that care for them - feeding them, providing shelters, catching them and seeing to their spaying or neutering, and usually this is with the approval of the CEO, but how or why this trend started is a mystery to me...bless you for the care you guys give to our furry/feathered/tailed friends..liz
