PETA Urges Memorial for Slaughtered Cows
The animal advocacy group, People for the Ethical Treatment of
Animals (PETA), is urging Greg Miller, president of the company that is
developing the land vacated by Central Livestock where South St. Paul's
stockyards were located, to build a memorial to honor the millions of
cows that suffered unimaginable pain and fear as if they were simple

"Rational thinking" should challenge us to abandon the widespread
abuse of billions of farmed animals every year. "Rational thinking"
should help us realize that God's animals as capable of suffering,

for the sake of taste and profit only reflects the little regard we show
for God's Creation and our poor stewardship of it.
