If we are to eat meat ( which as humans we do) we must kill. I know a few vegans who will argue all sorts of stuff, but mostly it is the cruelty involved that bother people- a decent, natural life with a quick death is as much as any one of us could hope for. However- stunts like this do not prove a thing, they just push forward the idea that those who slaughter are psychos.

I have no problem with eating horse meat (which is just as well considering.). I have no problem with a well-regulated and humane abbatoir.How else would I get my bacon?
However killing an animal as a debating technique does mark this guy as a freaking psycho. It's on a par with thinking that an appropriate way to debate islam would be to throw a pig`s head at a mosque. Even if the pig had been humanely slaughtered.
If there is an attempt at opening a legitimate well regulated business and it`s meeting resistance then swaying public opinion is going to be important. I suspect this is going to be counter-productive.
`Yes, our proposed business will be well-run, responsible, compliant with all regulations and run on humane principles. We are reputable business people and to prove it I pull out a gun and shoot something in the head because DON`T drat WITH ME.`
