I cannot watch the horrible video that shows what REALLY happens to the cows we slaughter every single day for our voracious appetites for beef. There has to be a more humane way to treat and kill these poor animals so that the beef eaters can have their meat. I for one, have turned to vegen ways because of the horrors that are bestowed upon these defenseless animals. They are one of many of gods creatures who DO have feelings and they do experience pain as we outrselves do. Why then, is it that we cannot treat them with some sense of humane dignity if they must be taken and slaughtered?

Hi Moodus: I'm not familiar with the video, but I watched an episode of Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations" that showed the process and it was very disturbing. Watching the film "Apocalypto" the other night made me want to stop eating meat as well. I was vegetarian for 10 years and enjoyed the experience very much. I can't tell you exactly what made me "fall off the wagon" but I would like to get back on. It must be horrific for the poor catttle standing in line waiting to be slaughtered, knowing deep down what awaits them...

Just once I think we should put those who are and have been cruel to any animal through the exact same treatment they have put those animals through! Maybe then they might understand what they do is wrong!! I've come to the conclusion that a lot of people just are numb and uncaring and they have lost any respect for anything including themselves! Thanks for your thoughts...

well Good For You.I have always considered that killing animals when we can all survive on plants is ridiculous and simply cruel. and after what you are saying well i guess it only reiterates my point that we should all turn the vegan way and stop torturing animals for our satisfaction.

Thanks...I think that we all need to start boycotting places like slaughter houses for the simple fact of it being cruel. If people were meant to eat meat, we would have teeth like wolves, hyena's, lions, tigers...DUH!!! We all have teeth that are flat across...we started off eating fruits, berries, vegetables...when did all of this become appropriate to consume massive quantities of meat anyway???? I refuse to eat any now..I've cut it out of my diet for good...Nothing with eyes will pass my lips again...
