In the past two decades farming of regular cattle has grown into a similar practice, only instead of a 3x4 stall to stand in it's large sheds with 90,000 other cows packed in around them. Cattle who get their legs stuck in the truck ramps, so the legs are simply cut off there and the cows dragged into the slaughterhouse. Cows fed processed sheep brains, even though they are vegetarian animals. Etc, etc...<br><br>Veal farming isn't any worse or better than regular cattle farming.<br><br>

I got myself hooked in the head once with a brand new Rapala jointed J7 repleat with three sets of razor sharp treble hooks. That was pain. <br><br>I love fresh water perch, crappie, walleye, brook trout and bullhead. Nothing finer in life than these species fresh caught in the early spring. Corn meal and bacon fat are your friend here.<br><br>
"Until your daddy learns that it’s not 'fun' to kill, keep your doggies and kitties away from him. He’s so hooked on killing defenseless animals that they could be next!"<br><br>This is why PETA loses support among people who might be receptive to their message if they would just present it in a different fashion. I'm a vegetarian and I still think they're a bunch of loonies.<br><br>

The PETA people are a bunch of hypocrites anyway. Every time they drive on a road, enter a building (including their houses), eat something, even a vegetable, they ignore the fact that animals have been killed to make room and food for them.<br><br>Animals displace and eat other animals, humans included - they should really get over it.<br><br>
