oh man, just thinking about this video tears me up. I haven't seen it since I turned veg which was like 6.5 years ago, but it still kills me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="">
and adding <a href="http://www.wegmanscruelty.com/" target="_blank">http://www.wegmanscruelty.com/</a> see the link to the video about battery caging on the left. There are over 700,000 hens at this typical factory farm - the activists found hens dead and dying in the manure pits; dead and dying of thirst and dehydration with their heads stuck in the bars of cages; up to 9 hens crammed in one cage; hens with severe infections (they never receive vet care on a factory farm); the living forced to live on the rotting bodies of the dead and dying...
After begging my bf to go vegetarian with me for 5 years, I asked him for "help" setting up that video so I could watch it. He was excited and thought we were watching a normal movie... and was munching his popcorn . After the movie, he said he was never eating animal flesh again. We've been vegetarian for 1.5 years now and I'm very happy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="">
Well. I managed not to cry. I just started screaming part way through it though. That is NOT pleasant. And of course it's even LESS pleasant to the animals. That is just...awful. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/undecided.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":-/"> Bleh. I don't know how I'm going to live without dairy though...<br><br><br><br>
I never knew how they did it. I knew it was bad but I never knew about all the torture before hand. Wow...
<b>That's horrible. I've seen similar videos and every one of them makes me sick. I had my husband watch this one with me and it didn't change his opinion on eating meat at all <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=""> He says as long as he's not the one actually doing it he doesn't care. OMG. Well, I found it gross anyway and it's part if why i'm against eating meat.</b>
Personally, after seeing both, I feel Earthlings is a bit more tastfully done. They both show the same things... and Earthlings goes into more detail (leather, animals for amusement, and beyond).<br><br><br><br><a href="http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-239204330856039070&q=earthlings" target="_blank">http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...0&q=earthlings</a><br><br><br><br>
(don't mind the spanish subtitles, it's the only free version left, online. You can buy the video at... <a href="http://www.petacatalog.org/prodinfo.asp?number=VP546" target="_blank">http://www.petacatalog.org/prodinfo.asp?number=VP546</a> )
Oh, wow! Didn't realize that Earthlings was an hour and a half long! That might've taken a while to watch...Yeah, meet your meat is great, just for the horrible things it shows. Made me go vegan, and quite a few people I know go vegetarian.
OMG! I tried watching Earthlings, but I had to stop when they put the dog in the garbage truck and presumably crushing it. (I couldn't finish that part.)<br><br>
I am assuming it gets MUCH worse. I know things like this happen everyday to millions of animals, but I just don't want to see or hear about it.
<span style="font-size:small;"><span>I don't know how anyone could watch those videos and think "So what, that's what they're here for." Sickening thought...though my grandparents and all of my other relatives would probably think that. *sigh*</span></span>
I watched the meet your meat but could not watch earthlings... this, to me, brought in domestic animals like dogs and cats, which strikes very close to home, having a kitten myself. I was so shocked when I saw the first one, and shocked also when I saw at least the parts I did watch in earthlings. Especially when they just killed the little kittens and threw them in the trash can, for no reason. Further, there is no reason at all why animals should be made to endure any pain or suffering... I can't believe I have been so blind. I'm home alone, waiting for my boyfriend to get here, and crying my eyes out. I've explored being vegetarian for about an hour now, and I'm changed forever. I used to wonder what the big deal was, and now I can't believe I didn't take the time to look into it before. To think that, at least up until this moment, I have fed my body with the suffering and abuse of these poor animals sickens me so much I can barely walk. I'm sorry this is so long guys, I'm just stunned. But at the same time, so thankful that I now see the light. Thank you so much for posting this.
The video was so horrific I could never watch it again. I've been a vegetarian for almost a year, but now know I must give up dairy and eggs as well. This video was what changed my mind forever. Unless I can keep happy hens and a happy milk cow in my back yard (which I can't), then I have no right eating dairy not knowing how or to what degree the chickens or cows suffered to give me this product!
