“The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?” Sir David Attenborough

You can see the chain limiting the movements of the guy’s hind leg.
What are your thoughts, my friend?
“We cut the throat of a calf and hang it up by the heels to bleed to death so that our veal cutlet may be white; we nail geese to a board and cram them with food because we like the taste of liver disease; we tear birds to pieces to decorate our women’s hats; we mutilate domestic animals for no reason at all except to follow an instinctively cruel fashion; and we connive at the most abominable tortures in the hope of discovering some magical cure for our own diseases by them”
Cow and calf
“Cows are exceptionally gentle, loving beings who form strong bonds with their family and friends. Separating any mother from her child, as is the routine practice within the dairy industry, inflicts upon both a cruelty beyond words” Mango Wodzak
All that humans do is delegate a day for ‘cow appreciation day’ celebrated annually on the 2nd Tuesday of July.
Food for thought
“Baby rats need rat milk, baby cats need cat milk, baby dogs need dog milk, baby humans need human milk, baby cows need cow milk, baby chimps need chimp milk. Would anyone believe it if someone claimed adult giraffes need elephant milk? or adult horses need squirrel milk? or adult possums need goat milk? or adult humans need cow milk? oh, wait, no, that last one makes total sense… NOT” Mango Wodzak
Thank you for your visit.
Take care, my friend.
