Community Speaks Out Against United Way's Plans to Give Away

Mulberry, Fla. -- After receiving numerous calls from
community members who are concerned that the Mosaic Company plans to raffle off
a live cow to benefit United Way of Central Florida, PETA has sent a letter to
the organization with an urgent request that it cancel the contest. In the
letter, PETA explains that cows are sensitive, affectionate animals who feel
pain and fear and that raffling animals for slaughter sends the message that
cruelty to animals is acceptable. The group is urging Mulberry-area
residents not to participate in the raffle.
"Raffling off a live cow for slaughter goes directly
against United Way's mission to 'advance the common good,'" says PETA
Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "We're
sure that the Mosaic Company can find clever ways to raise funds for the United
Way without promoting cruelty to animals."
Cows are curious, clever animals who form complex
relationships with one another and who mourn the deaths of their loved ones. At
the slaughterhouse, they are shot in the head with a captive-bolt gun, hung up
by one leg, and taken to the killing floor where their throats are cut and they
are skinned and gutted. Some cows remain conscious throughout the process.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
