    The driver should be charged reckless driving and be made by the courts to pay the bill with the cows who have died and injured. Lose his job. Have his driving license taken away from him and do time in prison

    Driver was speeding and hope he died since he caused this tragedy. Hopefully the cattle that died went immediately and the others will be ok, even though I am certain they are not going to a free life.

    As much as I HATE to say it, the COWS are better off dieing this way. It’s a shame they weren’t all killed. Do you have any idea what men working in a slaughter house do to THESE POOR CREATURES before they MURDER them ? They are TORTURED !! These people who work at these horrific places are heartless soul less zombies with no conscience !!!
