Proposal to Euthanize Downer Veal Calves

Sick, weak and injured calves are subjected to unimaginable suffering at the hands of the veal industry. These baby cows, sometimes only a few days old and with their umbilical cords still attached, are prodded, kicked and dragged to get them to the kill floor. There has been documentation of veal calves skinned alive in front of USDA inspectors who do nothing about it.

A proposed rule from United States Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service calls for immediate euthanasia of downer veal calves thanks to the pressure of animal right groups. The USDA is taking comments until April 8th.

The rate and degree of abuse that God’s farmed animals are subjected to is appalling. How are children of God willing to callously inflict unimaginable suffering to these innocent and defenseless creatures? Why are so many hearts insensitive to the plight of suffering creatures? We all share the same essence of love for we are God’s creations. Isn’t it time to make mindful and compassionate choices that accord with our beliefs of compassion, mercy, love and justice taught to us by Jesus Christ? May all people realize that they have the ability to change their hearts and minds in order to make a peaceful and loving world, as we are called to do as stewards of God’s Creation.
