See our local article: http://www.herald-review.com/blogs/letters/killing-cones-are-inhumane/article_83d47e02-15f7-11e1-a921-001cc4c002e0.html I personally don't think the killing cones are inhumane. Neither is the halal or kosher killings. They sure have to bring it up for Thanksgiving and see how many people are so misinformed about killing animals, timing of death. I am sure there are plenty of thread on this issue but people are forgetting it is the natural body response into whatever method of killing you use. I am sure MANy of us try to do it humanely, breaking neck, chopping neck, slice throat or even shooting it. We give thanks for it for providing us meat and food. Vegans are telling us plants dont have spinal cords or feelings. that is true but take away water, no sun, or full sun 24/7/365 to the point it is uncomfortable. Would they shrivel, turn yellow, get diseased, etc. Might just put the plants out of misery too because it affects them as well.
