Cruelty of intention
Category : Uncategorized
Stephanie over at the Change.org Animal Rights blog posted about a cruelty case where a farmer beat a cow unconscious and then skinned the cow, apparently while the cow was still alive.
What’s worse – or, what makes this even worse – is that because the farmer did this to kill the animal for food, there is no chance of trying him on cruelty charges. If he had been doing the exact same thing, but his intention had been to inflict suffering, then he would have been doing something wrong.
Any analysis I could do of this wouldn’t be as good as Stephanie’s, so I’d invite you to check out her post, which has excerpts from the original news story.
