How about this story from New Mexico where 25 cow carcasses were found amid a thousand emaciated cows who were left for the same kind of death by starvation. No surprise... The drought causes extreme scarcity of food and water. And well... I guess if you're in it for the (blood) money - Ya' can't go blowin' all the profits on hay and feed - Now can ya? :/
But on a less extreme scale those who eat animals are eating hungry ones all the time!
From cows - Cattle that have been shrunk kill more easily than those with full intestinal tracts. Perhaps withdrawing cattle from feed 1, 2, or 3 days before they are slaughtered would economically benefit both feeder and slaughterer.
To pigs - Feed withdrawal saves costs and contamination
To chickens- Feed withdrawal in broiler flocks that are about to be taken to slaughter, greatly influences processing and carcase quality.
They all arrive at the slaughter plant hungry!
Kind of weird when you think of it... Even brutal murderers set for execution get a great "last meal". And here we go... Murders of nonhuman victims - Starving them so we can eat them.
Ironic isn't it?
Please don't be the cause of anyone starving:
