I’m fully aware of the abuses animals suffer everyday and how many of them die everyday. It just shouldn’t be joked about.

I don’t agree at all. Robin William’s death should not be joked about because it would obviously offend his loved ones. Sheep? I’m not so sure.

I’m sorry if I offended you though.

Some people on this blog demand to be offended.

That would be what, one day’s worth of mutton on the shelves of Coles & Woollies? Not exactly a tragedy in the scheme of things.

Some were killed instantly in the crash and others had to be put down on the site. Anytime an animal has to experience pain at the hands of humans is a tragedy.

And how do you think animals who don’t die ‘at the hands of humans’ pass on? Peacefully in an open field, surrounded by loved ones?

No, they generally die miserably or violently, and often not quickly either. I’m certainly not happy that the sheep were killed, but I’m not going to pretend that I’m grieving for them either.

Depends on how they were killed. I’m guessing it was pretty painful and slow for a fair portion of those 110 sheep.

Too right.
Some of these posters deserve to be lambasted.

You win! Trotters down.

Is there a lambpost in the middle of that roundabout?

Details are a bit wooly.
