    I just can't love one animal and eat another.
    If they had the ability to speak I am sure they would tell us they do not want humans to do the things we do to them. They have nerve endings and feel pain, fear sadness.
    This is why I don't eat meat...but don't judge others that do eat it.
    I watched earthlings and mostly was so sad for all the animals out there suffering at our hands, that it is happening this very moment somewhere.

    I didn't visit the website and I didn't watch the video. I can guess what content is on it and I don't need to see it to get the idea. I am NOT a vegetarian, because I believe that it is an essential part to the human diet and health, but I have a fierce passion for animals.
    Yes, I know that we can live WITHOUT eating meat, but I don't see the need to struggle to find enough protein in alternative food sources. Don't chew me out, I don't want to get into an argument about how I'm "souless" and "cruel" because I eat meat. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and I'm just voicing mine.

    I believe that the answer is NOT in consuming less meat (although I do agree that meat more than 1-2 times a day should be discouraged), and that most western countries have excellent slaughter house practices. It is in countries where animal welfare isn't such a priority, where I assume most of those clips originated, that I believe the change needs to be made. Educate and adapt. Thankyou.

    Because they are ... domesticated cattle are bred for the meat and dairy industry, there are beef breeds which were developed to produce meat, and dairy breeds that were developed to produce milk. These animals are so far removed from their wild ancestors that they are barely the same species any more.

    I eat meat, but I eat free range or organic meat.

    That made me just... feel sick...Ughn..

    I do eat meat.. but not often.. I tried being a vegeterian but I couldnt. :/

    I Only eat ; Beef/Pork.. I kinda.. stay away from anything else.

    I hate real fur but leather is another story..

    If there are cows already being killed for meat? Why waste their skine? Might as well use it then have it go to waste. Their bones are already used and so are other things.. so leather isnt that bad. I only use leather for my horse stuff anyways. :/

    Fur.. I hate.. you can say.. oh.. well they might be killed for meat as well.
    I don't care.. its disgusting to me.

    Any other 'exotic' meat.. I don't dare touch.
    Like deer, bison, rabbit, etc.. no.

    But I do agree that a lot of the organizations are a bit over the top. There is a middle ground between the abuse and the exaggeration of how bad these industries are.

    Horray for vegetarians!

    P.s. Im a veggie :P

    Hahaha. Okay, first of all - You can't ride in a leather saddle and protest animal slaughter. No sir.

    Secondly - You CANNOT say oh, I'm a vegetarian, but I eat eggs and seafood. Sorry. These are animals, too. Eggs will eventually be chickens. Seafood. As in, shrimp, lobster, fish... These are all living, breathing things, too. Sorry. You're not a vegetarian.

    Lastly - So maybe animals slaughter has become inhumane. I'm sorry, but a few people not eating meat won't change that. And the idea of everyone not eating meat is completely unrealistic. Sorry. In fact, I love meat. Don't tell me to stop eating it. I like it. I don't eat it because I have to. I eat it because I want to. That doen't make me a bad person.

    Agreed, especially about the leather. People don't realize that leather cows are separate from meat cows, the hides of meat cows are thrown away. Many people also do not realize that dairy cows have overall worse lives than meat cows- meat cows are often in open air pens while dairy cows are kept inside in stalls. I eat meat because it is within my right to. As long as the slaughterhouses are well-run then there isn't any problem with it.
