    I understand they were dairy cows and not raised for beef, but with so many hungry people even in the US, could they not have been processed for food shelters or something? Seems like something positive could have come out of a tragic incident. I'm just shaking my head at the whole story.
    I feel the same way, the meat could have been put to good use. Hungry people don't care that they were not beef cattle. In economic times like this to bury thousands of pounds of meat is a sin.

    A COWardly & COWless Act.

    Sorry....I couldn't resist though I honestly believe that every suicide of any decent and basically good individual is always a pathetic and tragic event.

    It is also a thoughtless, selfish, and terrible act that permanently scars and saddens the family members and loved ones left behind.

    Not to mention the cowhide.

    Seriously, I'm sure the meat was buried because it didn't meet the government standards, being the animals were killed away from a slaughter house, etc.
    Places like Wal/Mart throw away tons of food every day and cannot donate it to homeless shelters.

    Yep.

    My dad grew up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin. That's why he joined the Army Air Corps when he was 17 years old.

    He never went back to Wisconsin.

    This story is just so sad. I hate to see innocent animals suffer.

    A few years back a guy murdered my five horses. He poisoned them with lead arsenic. It was a very painful and hideous death for all five horses.

    I still have nightmares over that.

    Sorry to hear of this. You must have had a good attorney to keep you out of prison. Animals suffering from any act bothers me, and QK is absolutely correct about the pain caused by suicide.

    That's sickening, It kills me to know that people are capable of such depraved acts of cruelty. Sorry for your loss.
