Moo-ving people toward compassionate living
From Sam Qureshi - 20 Nov 2004
These pictures and practices are terrible. I see your point, but what do these pictures and practices have to do with the average farmer?
I don’t think most kill their sheep, as their sheep, year after year, provide wool for sale. It isn’t in the best interest of the owner to kill the sheep, in any manner whatsoever, as it reduces the number of sheep that provide wool.
I certainly agree with your organization that this cruel treatment of animals is horrific and must be stopped. I am not sure, even after seeing the pictures, that not wearing wool is the best practice. As an avid knitter and lover of all creatures (except snakes), I believe there are many out there that are kind to animals who raise sheep for many purposes. Just my thoughts…
Have a great day and keep up the good work stopping these monsters!

Thanks for your thoughts and encouragement.
One would think that sheep (wool) farmers, and other animal farmers, would take especially good care of their animals, yet all of the photos were take on actual farms.
From what we've learned, from talking to some of the actual farmers and from other investigators is that the whole system works on economics. The industry weighs the costs of labor, which includes vet care, against the cost of animal loss, and almost always the animals lose.
In the Love of the Lord,
