I am a meat eater and that's not going to change mostly because I love the stuff. I have had a first hand look at places where people raise their animals for human consumption such as cows, sheep, pigs, and such. It really bothers me that some videos (im not saying that this one says that or anything as I have not watched it yet) Only show the bad side of the industry. I have family that own a dairy farm and their cows are treated as if they were humans! It really gives those people who are doing their job a bad name, people really cannot look at every single farm that raises animals to be eaten as "Oh My Goodness those kind of people are horrible and treat their animals like crap!" Most farmers treat their animals with the upmost respect.

I think it's great that you believe in something and you're protesting the fur industry. That's great. Although I really like my leather boots and my bunny fur lined slippers. I don't know what I'd do without them on cold nights. ;)

I love eating meat. In fact, I'm eating it right now! Vegetarian diets aren't really good for children either. Protein and iron are so important to their development that to stop the meat industry altogether would be very bad for the human children all over the world. I believe animals were made for our consumption and companionship. I think they deserve to be treated well up until their time has come. But seriously, some people take it too far when they decide that ALL meat and leather goods come from abused, neglected, mistreated, tortured animals.

I'm glad you stand up for something you believe. But I reserve and exercise my right to disagree.

Some of my favorite meats are:
Steak
Ground beef (for the hamburgers)
Fried or baked chicken
Salmon
Lamb!
Turkey (mmm gobble gobble)
Piggies for the pepperoni and sausage on my pizza...
Gotta love eggs (they count right?)

Let's face it. Some people will treat their children like junk let alone an animal. It's not that animals get the brunt of it. There is just some really cruel humans out their. Some even beat and batter their own spouses, children. How many starving children do you think there is in the world? To me, that's more worth my time saving to be honest. I love animals... but I love children more...

Sorry bout the randomness LOL

I saw the film - and I have to say it's a good way to make some people think a little about the situation, to be somewhat informed and aware what some people ale capable of, and it's usually just passed over in silence.

The title might make us think about all relationships with all the beings on our World, but the film strictly reffers to the negative sides of it and all the cruelty and how disgusting human kind can be.
I'm a meat-eater, all my family is and it's kind of tradition in here. I'm not proud of it, but I understand the "need" of eating meat and all animal-products with proteins and all the stuff it gives us. If we want to use other living beings for our purpose why the hell don't we make it easier to them? Yet we use their lives for our purposed and sometimes we treat them worse than a thing!
Talk about justice - there is no such a thing in this world!

Ugh!!! Yes there are horrible sluaghter places but not all of them are. These people only show the bad ones, that should be shut down, but there are good kind ones out there. Cows were made to be eaten!! Im sick of all this poor cows poor animals, they should not be eaten, bla bla bla. If we didnt do anything with them, we would be overrun with cows and other animals!!

I agree with almost everyone on here. I eat meat and use leather products because I believe leather is better for the environment than synthetics (due to the energy in the production methods and the chemicals used). I try where possible to only eat free range chicken and pork because in Australia these are the animals which are farmed in tiny little cages. I eat only grass fed beef because I believe using grain for beef and lamb is a waste and detrimental to the environment and those animals are not biologically supposed to eat grain. All the animals I eat are processed in reputable, highly regulated abbatoirs. This film was good because it shows just how horrible humans can be. But I do not believe that these people are in the majority, atleast not here in Australia. Just as people who abuse and starve their horses are not in the majority. It is a good film to inform those who do not think about their food choices at all to get them to open their minds and think about how the food gets onto their plate.

Bleh. Websites like these are simply biased facts put together. Doesn't affect me much at all. These people say that they are only trying to be good, when in fact they are only pointing out the negative things that humans have done.

Rather than not eating meat, which makes very little effect, in my opinion, we need to fight for LAWS for ethical treatment of animals. Not everyone in this world is going to be a vegan... sorry it's never going to happen. But, if everyone could be educated on how horribly we treat animals, all over the world, maybe we can change THE TREATMENT of animals.

And wow, whatever they were skinning and it was still alive, that sent a shiver down me... UGH how disgusting. How can we treat other souls like that? I believe in something a lot like hinduism, personally, and it's DISGUSTING to treat animals less then us. We're one.

Honestly though, most of the world can't even treat OTHER HUMANS with any shred of respect... so how are they expected to treat animals that way?
