Chicken Corner has received a response to "Pig heart," in which a neighbor describes coming across the pieces of a murdered pig. Benjamin Cole raises some good questions, such as:
Are not the coyotes supposed to clean such items as pigs heart up?
I gotta say, this one is icky, but does not bother me that much, as long as the animals are killed humanely.
After all, how many animals every day are killed in slaughterhouses? The orthodox also slaughter animals following rituals.
But people should not leave entrails in public parks.
As for the coyote, there is one that lives in some undeveloped lots behind my house. He/she has almost no fur and seems in need of a good meal. I have to admit I would be biased toward people who went out to feed her pork, but not as biased as I am against killing pigs for "spiritual" purposes that don't involve eating.
My opinion on the slaughterhouses: I think we kill too many animals for food. And I think we should eat meat only occasionally, or only when we're sick. No one needs to eat meat all the time, but the meat we do eat should be raised humanely. The existence of slaughterhouses does not justify animal sacrifice. This is my religion.
