I'm sure it'd be different if we were sending their kids over there
We should send over food that doesn't need refrigeration if that's the issue. After all they don't NEED to eat a cow.
Just another excuse of why they have to send our cows to be tortured. Last year my business class had some interview with a butcher (who also has his own farm). We asked about the live export and how he felt about it. He said it was bad how the cows were treated there, and that they need to be more humane, but that the beef producers here have to many cows, so some farms need to send them off. Really? You couldn't reduce the number of cows, or go into another business? Oh that's right. MoNeYZZ $$$ > Welfare of animals.
Even if they did end up with more humane ways to kill (not that killing can ever be humane), surely the trip overseas is horrible for our animals. I've heard of livestock vomiting, having diarrhea etc. just in the trucks driving for an hour or two, can't imagine what going overseas would be like for them.
