Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
A Tragedy at So Many Levels

Tens of thousands of cows and their calves died terrifying deaths during Atlas, a blizzard that hit South Dakota earlier this month. This storm, who took farmers by surprise since it’s not winter yet, has put many of them out of business.

Please visit South Dakota's cattle cataclysm: why isn't this horror news?
Sadly, the news of disasters like this one only focuses on the monetary loss of farmers but rarely, or never, on the suffering of the animals. The writer of the above article, Ms. Mess, did mention how torturous and terrifying must have those animals felt while unable to protect themselves and their babies. I think it’s important to note that these animals, whose lives seemed to matter simply for their economic value to the farmers, were ultimately going to die regardless with much pain and terror at a slaughterhouse.
