Lethal Injection? I dunno.
It's always puzzled my mind, I'm all for treating animals with respect, I even try to avoid eating meat... sometimes.
So the question comes up, is there such a thing as humanely killing an animal? An animal that is destined to be eaten? Do slaughter houses even consider such methods? Not even the so called pampered Kobe cows are treated well, at least veal get to die in a few months, those Kobe cows have to endure similar conditions for years.
Maybe it's in my genes, my dad went through a similar "vegetarian" phase, and now it's my turn to come out of the closet. :0
