It is not a problem, you can eat animals meat that lived free and happy organic life before killing, that is much better than eat animals that was raised at too small cages, suffering, sad, crying and drugged to build some unnatural muscle.

You can still choose better life to them, every days wellbeing counts for them. Every day that they are alive before ending up to your plate matters to them and you can choose to support meat producing which pays attention to animals well being.

In order for that to happen, the general population of the country in question has to care enough about the problem to pass such laws (and then to obey them). Most non-Western societies have a very different view of animals than what we are used to.

No, it is not the exact type of logic, because HUMAN lives are worth more than ANIMALS' lives. If you can't see what's wrong with your "logic" then I really feel sad for you.

Small animal vets in the US have some of the highest suicide rates. They see neglect and abuse daily, and people bringing in their adult dog to be euthanized so they can get a puppy, or not treating a dog or cats painful condition, and letting it get worse, or declining treatment. Or people who let an animal suffer because "they love it to much to put it down."

By your comments on this thread it's obvious that you are incapable of relating to someone like her (i.e., a compassionate person), but how did she waste her life because of animals? She was distraught because of nasty verbal attacks by HUMANS, not animals. If she had had more support from HUMANS, she would probably still be alive. So it's sad she wasted her life because of bullying and attacks and lack of support by other HUMANS:

She had allegedly become upset after animal rights activists had sent her threatening messages and even calling her a 'butcher with beauty' when it was revealed on a television programme the number of animals she had been forced to put to sleep.

This whole mess is supposedly because she had to put down so many ANIMALS and she was depressed about it.

By your comments on this thread it's obvious that you are incapable of relating to someone like me, who IS compassionate when it is called for.

Humanely euthanizing animals who are unwanted IS compassionate. They could just be left to run wild and have to forage for their own food, constantly going hungry, getting mange, covered with fleas and ticks, out in the freezing cold, etc. Humane euthanization is the answer for that, not feeding feral cats or keeping animals locked up in cages full of poo and pee for years. Our resources could be used for better things.

So, it's a dirty job but someone has to do it, and it's a good thing there are people who have the backbone to do it or we'd be overrun with strays.

Suggesting animals be put in a room and gassed is compassionate? I don't think so. And neither is a "who gives a sh*t, there'll always be more" attitude. However, I do agree that until spaying/neutering is enforced everywhere, humane euthanasia is a much better solution than letting the animal suffer. There are much worse things than death.

According to the article, she became distressed because she was being hounded by animal rights activists, who were not offering an alternative to what she was doing, but yet condemning her for it. So I really do believe if she had received support and help instead of being called a killer, etc., she would have been much less likely to kill herself.

I'm am at a loss to understand why that would not be compassionate (in cases where there is just a huge overload of unwanted animals). Could you explain your reasoning to me? I would think that it would just be like going to sleep.

Gassing animals to death is illegal in many places because it is definitely not humane. Lots of info if you google it.
