I could see this with humans but not with cows.


CHICAGO An animal rights group wants Illinois to install highway signs in memory of cattle killed when trucks hauling them flipped in two separate wrecks.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has asked for permission to buy the markers, one in suburban Chicago and one northwest of Peoria.

Will they build one for the burger I ate last week?

That being said, if they are willing to pay for it with their money, hey, I say do it. I know people who throw birthday parties and buy clothes for their dogs, not much different.

Look. I'm a Liberal and love animals. But come on. Memorials for dead Cows. PETA needs to stop hitting the pipe.
Talking about Cows...Chick-Fil-A sounds pretty good. Having them for lunch tomorrow. LOL.

Disagree, seems it's public space and this is political.

We need to have compassion for all sentient beings. Animals don't want to be hurt or killed, either.
