Once the author Jeffery Massom and his family were passing by
cows confined in a feed lot staring out at them - not grazing or doing what cows normally do, approaching the fence and staring out at the author and his family. He speculated:
“What I imagined was that the cows were wondering why they were there singled out for death. What kind of a world was it that allowed my family and me, cosy and safe in our new car to simply drive by, where as they and their families where destined to be driven away in a large truck and murdered for their meat?”
“One day far into the future people will marvel that we took the lives of these gentle and beautiful animals to satisfy our greed and gluttony. And one day a family much like mine will drive by and cows much like these will be grazing on a hillside, and those cows will be admired rather than eaten by humans.”
