I am a meat eater and will always be... I hunt, fish, and have assisted in raising cattle, goats, rabbits, chickens, ducks, and sheep for human consumption.
i did go to the website and watched the vidoes that they had on there and I do get upset over movies like this. I get upset in one way because of how some of the human race has been so cruel to other humans, animals, and nature. But it also upsets me because they bring out the worst in the human race... showing Hitler, the KKK, and the mass feed lots for a few examples. What about the people that raise the animals with repect?
There are many farmers that provide fresh feed, water, and bedding to the meat animals. Like when we raised and butchered, the animal was killed by a quick bolt to the head (ive seen it done many times)... also I feel that God provided the animals for us to eat (and other animals to eat), he also made plants and water available for the animals to grow (and humans)
The DNR puts limits in on how much wild game can be leagally taken- and they enforce it very tightly (atleast around where I hunt). Most people follow the rules but there is also times that some people don't, which ruins the way "outside" people look at hunting or fishing.
I know you didnt start the thread to offend anyone (which Im not offended) Im just putting my 2 cents in about how I feel with animal rights organizations... I agree that the way some things are run needs to stop but it shouldnt make everyone stop eating meat either....
It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.
