He says the situation is a travesty and the result of big business corporations worshiping the almighty dollar as the god they serve.

"I speak on behalf of myself and many others who serve either a much higher God, or at the very least a much higher purpose where life and all living beings are concerned. It is my passionate conviction that all creatures deserve to be treated humanely in both life and death," he says.

Adding that the culling policy of young stock is unjust and a more rational solution should be, and could be, found.

"Let's start by exploring the choices and options available to us. This situation presents a twofold opportunity to save both the unnecessary and senseless slaughter of living and usable animal life, and also provide food for people who are able to process the meat appropriately and in turn make valuable use of it," he suggests.
