A standard beef slaughterhouse kills 250 cattle every hour.
The high speed of the assembly line makes it increasingly difficult to treat animals with any tweeny bit of humaneness.
It is impossible to have a good attitude toward cattle if employees have to constantly overexert themselves, just to keep up with the line.
Prior to being hung up by their back legs and bled to death, cattle are supposed to be rendered unconscious, as stipulated by the federal Humane Slaughter Act. This 'stunning' is usually done by a mechanical blow to the head.
However, the procedure is terribly imprecise, and inadequate stunning is inevitable.
As a result, conscious animals are often hung upside down, kicking and struggling, while a slaughterhouse worker makes another attempt to render them unconscious. Eventually, the animals will be struck in the throat with a knife, and blood will gush from their bodies whether or not they are unconscious.
Cows are peaceful, sentient beings who deserve the right to life like anyone else.
