A group of animal-rights advocates conducted a vigil outside a local slaughterhouse Friday to call attention to what they say is the inhumane treatment of animals.
The group began gathering at 5 p.m. in front of Rancho Veal at 1522 Petaluma Boulevard North. It swelled to about 45 people by 5:45 p.m.
“We were there to mourn and memorialize the animals and remind people that this is animal cruelty,” said Lisa Soldavini of Petaluma, a member of Northbay Animal Advocates who helped organize the vigil along with Kate Danaher.

I would bet you dollars to doughnuts that these folks that were protesting could even vaguely describe how the harvesting process takes place. They claim that it’s inhumane but most likely their research has been done on YouTube. And besides that, more than likely they are the type of people that think nothing ever dies. For some reason they aren’t able to grasp the concept that the success of life depends on death. Everything that they are eating was once alive.
