I am not vegan, and don't plan to ever be, but I love animals and respect life.

I'm sorry. I just can't connect to your statement. To love someone is to cherish their right to live as much as one's own.

The only way animals are going to survive abuse lives and painful deaths is to go vegan.


The reason people mistreat them is because people eat them - and make the abuse profitable.

Farm animals are seen as a product, not living individuals with the right to live their lives.

No matter how "humanely" killed a meat claims to be, it always involves killing young animals many years before it would naturally die, not to mention a multitude of other abuses.

In fact, our meat industry makes sure that almost no cattle older than 3 years lands on a human plate. (Cattle can live naturally up to 28 years)

If you buy meat, you make a market for it - you make the abuse profitable and thus contribute to it.


I am a vegan. There is no such thing as humane meat.

I am not vegan, and don't plan to ever be, but I love animals and respect life. All animals should be loved and properly cared for throughout their lives, even if they are intended to be food in the end. While they are alive they aren't just food, they are precious animals with beating hearts just like ours. I will never understand the reason people mistreat them.
