Farm animals deserve legal protection from death by fire

Leave a comment

While most will be disturbed to hear of the tragic death of a pet or a prized racehorse, it seems few share the same sentiment for animals considered livestock, and the law reflects the same lack of concern. Farmed animals in Canada are commonly regarded as commodities, their deaths often measured by weight and financial loss rather than by number of lives. Though destined to be dinner, farmed animals are not mere products. They are sentient beings capable of experiencing fear and pain just the same as our beloved pets, and they deserve to be protected from the terrible fate of death by fire.
