Someone might scold you for posting that. There's been a lot of threads about this apparently. But I think it's kinda funny and creative. And, actually, I never knew it existed until about 2 days ago.

Oops! I apologise it is new to me. How do I remove this thread?

Nah, I'm pretty sure it's ok. Those threads are old, and I'm positive quite a few people haven't seen this yet! It's fairly new to me, too.

I'd never heard of it. Pretty interesting but you'd think these animals wouldnt want to be eaten at all, huh? ;D

I've seen it. It's very informative and is at least good at getting the word across to meat eaters as to what conditions their food are being brought to them under. Still, it is somewhat pro-meat (encouraging others to buy from organic/local farms if I remember right)...and that's just not ok.

I went into it thinking it was going to be pro-vegetarian and was very shocked when it still advocated eating meat, albeit meat from small/local farms. At the end of the day, the animals are still being raised and slaughtered for the sole purpose of being food. I don't agree with it. But I guess it's good that it's raising awareness of factory farms.

I remember my Biology teacher showing this in class when I was 15 or 16. I think I was shocked, but it didn't stop me from eating meat then :/

I guess it was because eating meat was seen as something so natural and normal? And also because I was an apathetic teen :/

I agree, It does let you know of the fear these animals experience, but at the same time it does promote eating meat......such irony.
