I went to shoot a small and large animal vet today for a group project for my picture editing class. The first thing he had to do was de-horn a bunch of cows. They were screaming and thrashing as he cut their horns off, and screamed and thrashed even more when he pulled out the blood vessels from around their horns so the bleeding would stop. It broke my heart. It really made me step out of my comfort zone, to have to stand there and photograph animals in pain, without being able to help them.
