The marker should read...

I was on my way to be ground into chuck, but I met my maker, when they flipped the damned truck.

LMFAO!!

PETA, plee-ease, get a freaking grip!

This is an example of twisting an original humane concept into organized idiotic nonsense! They're so blinded by zealotic fever they're repulsing the very public they seek audience and sympathy with.

Did some fast food chain still use the cows from the two truck accidents? "I'd like my burger median, please."

Or did they turn these cows into cattle feed, like they normally do with cattle meat by products?

In Australia we have had so many cattle truck rollovers stretching right across the countryside that if PETA were here they would go broke installing memorials.
When they do get around to installing their plaques,will PETA then have a moo-ving memorial service with the ending not being Amen but instead Moooo in whatever the breed were.

In the early 1970's between Djarra and Mount Isa in Western Queensland 200 head of cattle per year were guaranteed to have been hit by road trains which put quite a dent in the profit line for Stradbroke Pastoral Co. who owned Ardmore Cattle station

The cow roadkill doesn't bother me as much as those poor, innocent giant bugs that go splat on my windshield. Every time that happens, I bow my head in a moment of prayer -- and hit a cow or 2.

I do too, but they don't have the guts to try it again.
