16 Photos That Will Change Your Mind About Eating Meat

Animals are thinking, feeling beings, and we shouldn’t eat them. The following are 16 reasons why:

1. Because this calf lives in a dirty, fly-infested veal crate.

2. Because this goat is about to be slaughtered.

3. Because these ducks, rescued from the foie gras industry, need their livers.

4. Because this rescued cow escaped from a burning transport truck bound for slaughter.

5. Because this cow isn’t so lucky.

6. Because this rescued chicken had her beak burned off without any painkillers.

7. Because this rescued rooster survived a factory farm that collapsed during Hurricane Katrina.

8. Because this pig just arrived at the slaughterhouse.

9. Because the mother-calf bond is instantaneous.

10. Because these other mother cows look on. They’ve all had their babies taken from them just hours after birth.

11. Because these cows don’t want their baby taken away.

12. Because she was taken away anyway.

13. Because calves raised for veal spend their short lives in a small pen and are then shipped to slaughter.

14. Because this calf can’t even walk to her prison.

15. Because this is where she’ll stay until she’s either slaughtered for veal or used for her milk.

16. Because later that day, the fly-covered calf we saw before is now dead.

    I am truly appaled at what goes on and deeply saddened by it all. I have beeen a vegetarian for over 5 yrs but I had a “wake up call” recently and became vegan overnight. I suddenly realised that being vegetarian was not enough because I was still condoning the cruelty endured by dairy herds just to get the milk that was intended for use by their precious babies. I cried all night when I heard a Mother cow crying for her baby and knew I could do nothing to help her as her beautiful baby had been wrested from her. I live near a dairy farm and I am saddened every day. I hold an open mind on freerange eggs (if they are truly free range) as my daughter has chickens that live very happy lives (even come and sit on my knee when I visit , and follow me everywhere. ) but I do ot eat eggs myself.

    Meat’s disgusting, cruel, and horrible. I haven’t eaten it in 36 years.

    I have now been vegan for a month. I need to go through slaughterhouses as part of my job (I am desperately looking for a new job). I cannot begin to tell you how horrific it is….
    The pictures, as horrific as they are to look at do not begin to demonstrate the condition of the animals (they know what is happening and are scared) or the smell.
    I should also mention that I feel better health wise than I have ever felt. Turning vegan was the best decision I have ever made.

    I became a vegetarian three years ago now when i watched Hearthlings. I come from an agricultural place (Azores) and i was used to bringing up my own animals with my family. These animals were treated like we were, lived in extremely good conditions and were used as a food source for the whole year (nothing wasted).

    I was so wrong to think that all animals were treated the way me and my family treated them, so to watch such a documentary and to discover the torture animals go through, i abdicated from all animal sourced products, including back at home.

    Please watch the documentary (please be aware that the whole programme will shock you to your core) and it will leave an inprint i am sure and some changes will come from it.

    Lets help keep animals safe by reducing the demand for animal derived products

    Regards

    I have always classed my self as a total animal lover but I ate Meat. It wasn’t until I saw Peta’s news on skinning live animals that I was totally horrified and pledged to never wear fur. I signed up to receive Peta news letters and saw the information on slaughter houses. I can not believe I saw myself as an animal lover but ate meat. I am now a complete vegetarian and will never eat meat again. What right have we to take the lives of these beautiful animals in such cruel, cruel ways to fill our faces. It makes me cry when I see there terrified faces as they are about to be slaughtered and god only knows what they have suffered before this. Anyone who thinks themselves as an animal lover could not eat meat.
