I often drive past a few farms where newly born calves have been
pulled away from their natural mothers to be attached to little prefab white huts outside near the highway for up to two years..everytime I drive by they are either tied to the hut or in the hut..nothing changes for 24/7 for 2 years I hear which is when they are is so Joan Dona Dona Dona..Its about a calf awaiting slaughter..I hate to be amongst the smartest/ most conscious people on the planet or anyway the most  compassionate and empathetic..its so painful..the rest of them drive by unconscious..thinking of their lives without concern..At least I know I have empathy..and I feel good about it but please help these poor calves ...standing around with no purpose is bad enough but the horror of slaughter where many are sadistic ingrates doing these awful jobs in slaughterhouses is worse.
