Dear Gene and Mary:
You mentioned the key factor which is the supply and demand that condemns 10 billion land animals to suffer and die every year in the US. If a downer is slaughtered he or she fills part of the demand, if not another animal will be bred to fill the demand. This is part of our dilemma in trying to stop the suffering.
We most definitely agree that we need to raise public awareness to the suffering of animals in any peaceful way we can, but we also believe that allowing downer slaughter to continue just might give the public a much bigger incentive to end their consumption of animal body parts and secretions.
We can still show the suffering of downers and their mistreatment to help touch people's emotions, but we believe we should depict their suffering as part of the over all suffer caused by the farmed animal industries.
In the Love of the Lord,
Frank and Mary
