A Spiritual And Inspirational Poem That Touches The Heart And Soul And Provokes The Mind —from All-Creatures.org
IF GOD’S PRECIOUS ANIMALS IN FACTORY FARMS COULD SPEAK HERE IS WHAT THEY MIGHT SAY—BY ANONYMOUS
I will never see the sun rise. I will never see it set.I will never feel a kind touch. I will never be a pet. I will never feel loved or be loved, as I’m led to my murder, being prodded, poked and shoved.
As they cut my tender skin,I wondered if anyone cared. If anybody out there would consider my despair. For you did not see me die, and you did not see me bleed. You did not hear me cry before you ate the meat that you don’t need.
You did not watch them kill me. You could not feel my pain. You will try not to think of me, as you blindly eat again.I was the cow you ate on Monday.The pig you had the midweek. I was the turkey you ate for Christmas.
I was the calf you had to eat. I was the chicken in your sandwich, and the duck you had with tea.I felt pain beyond belief, but you never thought of me. Because thinking can be painful, and you refuse to see, that for every time you eat meat, those animals must bleed.
The cow was killed for Monday. The pig was butchered too. The turkey lived for 16 weeks, and the baby calf had died for you. The chicken lived inside a cage. The duck could hardly move. All this needless suffering occurred for so called food.
I fail to see a reason, as there is no need. When humans eat my meat, it is purely for their greed.You may think you’re above me. That you have the advantage. But a kind, innocent creature, is better than a SAVAGE!!
So next time you’re out shopping, try to feel some guilt. For the animals that have died, for your eggs, your meat and milk.
My heroes are those people, who will not bite into me. So I ask a simple favor. Please stop eating meat.I’m asking for the cows, the pigs and all the sheep.
Who are much more important than just some cruel unhealthy treat. They can’t speak themselves, so please let’s be their voice. Every animal born into this, for them there was no choice. For you did not see me die, and you did not see me bleed. You did not hear me cry, for the meat that you don’t need!
Photo and Background from GOOD WOLF
Wolf killer, JACOB MANCUSO, says he is “not afraid of ridicule” – as he posed for this ‘brag’ photo of a young wolf – who “dropped in his tracks” after MANCUSO shot him. Says he is “happy to help the elk hunters”. What Mancuso in his SADISTIC IGNORANCE doesn’t understand is that there are more elk in the NW now, than ever in history – 400,000!!! MANCUSO, is not afraid of ridicule.
Per Cody Enterprise:
With a single shot from his .243, Jacob Mancuso might have made history.
It’s possible Mancuso, 19, of Burlington was the first person to fill a wolf tag Monday – the opening day of Wyoming’s first regulated wolf hunt.
“I have no idea if I was the first one to get a wolf” said Mancuso, who shot his that evening in wolf hunt area four, in the Meeteetse region.
“When I put in my call to the Game and Fish reporting hotline, the lady who answered didn’t know for sure either, but she did say, ‘You’re the first who has called in.’”
G&F reported two wolves taken in the Park County area opening day, but the agency isn’t releasing any information identifying the hunters.
The latest G&F reports available early Wednesday indicated four of a statewide mortality quota of 52 wolves had been taken in the trophy game zone.
When wolf hunts opened in Montana and Idaho, publicity about the first hunters to bag wolves there generated widespread objections and protests – and even some threats against the hunters.
Mancuso said he had hunted for the enjoyment and challenge, and didn’t give possible controversy much thought.
“I’m not afraid of ridicule,” he said.
More than 2,000 wolf tags have been sold in Wyoming, and it’s expected most hunters will carry a wolf tag while hunting big game, instead of going out only for wolves.
If the 52 wolf quota is met before the Dec. 31 season closing date, hunting will end for the year, regardless of how many hunters are left still holding tags.
Outside the trophy game zone (in Park County, east of WYO 120), wolves are classified as a predatory species and may be shot year round, but G&F has reported few wolves venture outside the trophy game zone.
Mancuso said he and his brother-in-law Troy Simenson of Cody were hunting specifically for wolves when they set out Monday afternoon.
They were hunting mostly on hope and hearsay.
“We knew guys who hunted big game in that area, and said they had heard wolves howling around there,” said Mancuso, who works as a farm hand.
When they arrived at their parking spot, they spotted some wolves about 1,200 yards away, and decided to make for the ridge they saw the animals cross.
After a long hike and some sitting, they hadn’t seen or heard any more sign of the wolves, so they started making their way back to their vehicle.
“We decided to try sitting in one more spot, and stayed there for about an hour,” Mancuso said.
“I heard something in the bushes along the treeline above us and, wouldn’t you know it – a good-sized black male popped out about 75 yards from us,” he said.
They waited for a while on the hope that more wolves would appear, possibly giving Simenson a shot too.
“When no other wolves showed up, we decided I had better take the shot while we had the chance,” Mancuso said.
The wolf dropped in its tracks.
Mancuso estimates it to be about three years old and 80 pounds.
It was getting dark as they skinned the carcass, and he put the head and hide in his backpack.
They were still about four miles from their vehicle, on rugged ground.
Mancuso said he’s yet to have the wolf officially aged or measured; he’d like to have the hide and head turned into a rug.
“The fur is amazingly thick and soft,” he said. “I’ve called around to a few taxidermists, but the prices I’ve been quoted are more than I can afford.”
Mancuso said he was grateful for the chance to hunt Wyoming’s newest trophy game species.
“We got lucky,” he added. “But I was glad for the opportunity to help out the elk hunters.”
