Oregon – They are survivors and they should stay that way. That’s what a group of animal rights advocates wants to happen with the cows that survived a deadly crash in Eastern Oregon. The people with Farm Sanctuary want the cattle to spend the rest of their days in a sanctuary and not sent to slaughter. A semi truck with cattle crashed killing several cows and the driver of the truck on I-84 earlier this week. Farm Sanctuary is a group that generally objects to the way cows and other farm animals are processed for human consumption.
