    For the record, I love my corn-fed, methodically-fattened beef as much as the next average American.
    What I just read in that article is in no way similar to normal practice in any farm I've ever seen. They are actively inflicting pain on the animals, which is absolutely unacceptable.

      And it's day after day as well. Beef cattle only feel the bolt to the head once. And most dairy cows find it enjoyable to get milked twice a day. And most of the higher end operations take several steps to reduce the overall stress the animals have to endure. Those bears had to be locked up so they can't even kill themselves.

        Cows HAVE to be milked every few days. Very painful otherwise.

          The only thing that could come close would be veal and foie gras production. However, some areas are banning foie gras from being sold. And at least those two operations still produce food.

            Cows have to be milked once a day at the very minimum, twice a day is normal, large operations have moved to a 3 per day schedule. It is in the best interest of the farmer to have the animals as comfortable as possible. Cows that are comfortable, healthy and living in a low stress environment produce more milk for longer. Steers that live in those same good conditions grow faster on less feed, while producing a higher quality meat. It would be stupid, economically irresponsible and most importantly simply cruel to the animals to have living conditions that don't give the animals a comfortable life.

                Are you serious? Take a look at a few of the pictures posted under that article and tell me what American stockyard that looks like. I'm sick to my stomach after reading that and looking at a few pictures.

                  I'm reluctant to post this. La. father kills and decapitates his 7 year old handicapped son. Then puts the head out on a road so the boy's mother can see it. This depraved POS needs killing, now, today.

                      The department said it was working with the Japanese consulate general to notify the victim's family. Her name was being withheld pending the notification, and police did not say which country she was from.
                      I'm going to go out on a limb and say she was from Japan.

                          I don't even want to read the article to get the full story. That disgusting. For this guy, I think I'd also want to take a nailgun and attach his own limbs to his own torso. Then pry the limbs away with a crowbar.
                          Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

                                The late Robin Harris (who left us far too soon) had a hilarious take on capital punishment. The first time I saw this, I was laughing so hard I couldn't catch my breath. "Gotta go. Gotta go."
