Tell USDA: Stop Allowing the Torture of Downed Cows to Feed Our
PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY AND WRITE TODAY!
Dragging cows too weak to stand. Shocking them with electric prods
when they can't walk. Ramming them with forklifts. Even forcing
water down their throats -- right out of the manual on waterboarding.
HSUS' shocking undercover investigation revealed these and other
abuses of "downed" dairy cows -- those who are too sick or injured
to walk -- at a Southern California slaughter plant. And The Humane
Society of the United States' investigation also discovered that the
meat from these tortured animals gets fed to children through the
National School Lunch Program! Please watch the HSUS investigative
video, and then take action today to stop this cruelty at:
The HSUS of the cruelty is very difficult to watch. Even worse is
the thought that an outfit like Hallmark Meat Packing Company got
away with this kind of abuse every day, without proper oversight
from the USDA.
Urge the USDA to tighten its lax enforcement of the downer rule and
to close the rule's loophole -- so that cows who are obviously in no
shape to walk are not taken to slaughter in the first place.
Don't forget to tell your friends and family how they can help, too.
