and adding http://www.wegmanscruelty.com/ 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
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.
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*
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!
