When are we going to stop this
stupidity?? Why should this man get his cows back? We need to stop treating animals as property and start treating them as living, breathing beings that deserve clean food, water and a place to sleep. It's not a difficult concept.

Wow, it's really easy to be judgemental isn't it? Cows ARE NOT children that is a comparison that should never be made.

There are many comparisons to be made between children and animals. They are dependent on adults for food, water and shelter, both are unable to fight back when abused, both are usually very forgiving to their caregivers even though they may have been beaten to within an inch of their life, starved, etc. People who abuse animals have no compassion to those who are vulnerable. How many of the abusers and murderers in prison also abused animals? There is a very real correlation.

They're not like children. Cows are food. Period. Children are people, not the same.

2424, you have a very distorted view of the world don't you? I'm not preaching that "we're all god's creatures" but rather that the phenomenon of life is a very valuable one. You're a fool to not recognize that we as humans are also animals. Cows are just as capable of feeling pain as much as you or I. The fact you see them as only food just says to me that you do not understand in the slightest the beauty of life. Would it kill you to think about your views before you blast them at everyone else?
