I hope you’ll excuse my animal-right version to come to the fore for a few lines.

I was watching Australia, with Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman. As a fan of western films I have seen a number of movies  on cowboys driving cattle. Some are epic, some are comical. Some have happy endings for the cowboys and their employers. None has happy endings for the poor things who are so  driven for miles and miles to their death.

No passing bells for cattle who die.
