    Although it is funny watching you melt down over a cow, now you are just repeating yourself, and it's quite boring.
    If you were in the line to be executed, you would probably be able to jump over a 6ft fence also.

    Hunting and gathering? That might work out in the sticks where I live, but I think people in the city will last very long.
    Well, as far as I know the majority of farmers that provide our produce already use chemicals because TO NOT do so would not be economically viable. I'm aware that these farmers also use animal manure, not because it is the only fertilizer available but because it's convenient since we can already get it from the animals we slaughter. Please correct me if I'm mistaken. If we're talking about small farmers, they are hardly able to provide everyone with food in the first place.

    Well actually, the two of us are managing to have a fairly decent conversation. It's a hell of a lot better than you all making ridiculous jokes about tasty animals and mocking the cow's suffering.

    Not Thumper because he was animated and I don't think the paint would be too tasty.

    No one is mocking the cow.

    Are you now channeling the cow's feelings?

    So tell how you know that the cow knew? Do you speak with them?

    It's not at all uncommon for a 1000 pound animal to be able to jump a fence. The average show jumper (horse) is 1200 pounds and the record for the highest jump by a horse with a rider on its back is over 8 feet.

    Horses carrying a 150 pound human can easily clear a 6 foot jump.

    Depends on where he was in the processing line. They smell the blood and know quite well that something is wrong. Fear is a powerful motivator for any animal. Cows will flee from what they perceive to be a threat.

    It depends upon the animal.

    Horses are much more athletic than cows.

    It's not just the weight of the animal, but the skeletal and muscle structure.

    We eat cows because they run much slower.....
