- Certainly not the nearly 55,000 birds that have perished in Kansas and North Carolina.
- Or the 2500 pigs Missouri.
- Or the 4,000 cows in Iowa. The thousand in Kansas. 1500 in South Dakota.
- And in Texas the ones that don't get killed by the heat are being sent to slaughter all the sooner because there just isn't enough water or grass.
No big worries for these ranchers and harmers though... They get reimbursed through the Livestock Indemnity Program and all is well.
But... Just in case you are prone to eating any of these creatures - I suggest that you re-consider what "humane meat" is... Are you factoring in for the whole system that you contribute to? Are you taking into account the torturous deaths to these animals in floods and fires? Or are you just considering their happy deaths at the slaughterhouses?
There really is a cooler way to live...
