tsk tsk to her for those un 4H words and GOOD FOR YOU for speaking for the horses! On the local news one day they showed a cattle truck that had overturned on the turnpike in Topeka. They wer bulldozing those cattle off the road. They were crying and a lot of them had been severely injured. I was so P----d that I could not sit down as I called the station and told them what I thought. they ask if I was mad that they showed that. I said no, I was glad I got to see what goes on, what happens to animals who are hurt. they are bulldozed. I could not believe my eyes. than I promptly e=mailed KDOT and told them what I thought. Apparently I wasn't the only one. There was an apology on the newscast that night and a promise to have a veterinarian present if it happened again. Livestock does not fall under the Animal welfare Act, which is a crying shame.
