Insane Things Done to Baby Animals Used for Meat, Dairy & Eggs

When we think of baby animals like chicks, lambs, piglets or calves, innocence and cuteness often come to mind. Most of us will never deliberately hurt a baby animal, not to mention torturing him or her.

However, when it comes to our food choices, many of us pay other people to torture baby animals (and adult animals) in the most horrific ways.

The following examples are just some of the things that are done to baby animals in order to produce meat, dairy or eggs:

1. Killing male calves with axes to their heads

Killing male baby calves with axes to their heads

In the dairy industry, many farms decide to get rid of their male calves (since unlike the female calves - male calves won't produce milk) by bashing them in the head with a hammer or an axe.

Although dairy farms can generate profit from sending the male calves to slaughter, some farms prefer to be done with the male calves as soon as they are born.

2. Grinding baby chicks and ducklings alive

In the egg industry, male chicks who are just one day old are thrown into a grinder and macerated alive, simply because they won't produce eggs. One method for sorting out the male chicks is to use a genetically modified breed in which the males have a darker shade of yellow.

In the foie gras industry, it is the female ducklings that are thrown alive into an electric mincer after they are born. Only male ducklings are kept and raised as they gain weight much faster compared to females.

Sadly, the horrible practice of grinding baby birds alive is not exclusive to the industries of foie gras or eggs. The same violent death awaits weak or deformed chicks or baby turkeys who are bred for meat as well. Since the meat industry uses a breed that was genetically altered to grow very fast, many baby birds hatch with different deformities.

3. Ripping the testicles of piglets (without anesthetics)

Generally, the USDA doesn’t allow meat with a boar taint smell to enter the meat supply. Boar taint is associated with the hormones that are naturally produced by intact males. Therefore, nearly 100% of male piglets who are raised for meat in the US are castrated.

However, even in countries where it is not mandatory, piglets are still being castrated so they don’t develop that smell. A very common procedure would involve ripping or cutting the babies’ testicles, without the use of any painkillers or anesthetics.

Sadly, piglets are not the only baby animals who undergo this painful procedure. Lambs, kids and even baby cows, also have their testicles removed without pain killers. The reasons for castrating babies vary from assuring the meat smells in a certain way, to make the animals more submissive.

4. Burning off the beaks of baby birds

Burning off the beaks of baby birds

The process of burning off the beaks of baby birds such as turkeys in the meat industry or chicks in the egg industry is known as ‘debeaking’. This process, like most mutilations done to animals in the food industry, is done without any painkillers or anesthetics. The beak will most commonly be shortened permanently, though sometimes regrowth may occur.

Birds in both the egg and meat industry will be forced to live in sheds with thousands of others of their own kind. In such stressful situations, the birds can resort to self-mutilation, bullying, and pecking. This is why the industries cut the beaks of baby birds - to decrease the number of injuries.

Debeaking is an extremely painful process because the beak is very sensitive and full of pain receptors, blood vessels, and nerve endings. Despite this, most egg farms, including those labeled “cage-free” and “free-range”, purchase chicks who had their beaks cut.

5. Kidnapping babies from their mothers

In the dairy industry, it's standard procedure to take the calf – whether male or female – away from their mother shortly after birth so that we, instead of them, can get the milk.

In order for cows to produce milk, they need to be pregnant. And just like humans, cows carry their babies for nine months. However, usually, within just a few hours of birth, the babies are snatched away from their mothers. Female calves will be forced to suffer the same fate as their mothers, while male calves are killed shortly after, many times to produce veal.

Unfortunately, the dairy industry is not limited to cows as goats and sheep are forced to go through this traumatic experience as well.

6. Forcing baby birds to grow without a mom

All birds in the food industry, such as the chicks raised for egg production or the turkeys and ducks raised for meat, never see their mothers or feel the warmth of a nest. Instead, they are hatched in large incubators and huddled around heat lamps to keep warm.

Incubators can hold up to thousands of eggs that are hatched in a controlled environment. When they hatch, chicks, baby turkeys and ducklings can be heard calling for their mothers, but to no avail.

All of these babies rely on their mothers for protection and guidance. At this age, they just want to follow and be near their mother, who is supposed to take care of everything else. When we force baby birds to grow up without a mother figure, it causes them a lot of stress and anxiety.

7. Slamming the heads of piglets against concrete

PACing (also known as thumping) is a term that means “Pounding Against Concrete”. This is a method used by the meat industry to kill unwanted piglets.

Sick or non-viable baby piglets will be picked up by their hind legs and slammed against concrete. This causes a massive head trauma which often leads to an agonizing and slow death. Pigs who don't die immediately are left to squirm in agony and some even have seizures.

So what can I do to help these babies?

In order to make this world a kinder place for babies, please give vegan food a try. For an easy start, join Challenge 22 to get free guidance and support for 22 days.

    Every single atrocities performed to this innocent animals will no go vein..it will come back to them haunting..and they would wonder why this is happening to them..but in the mean time poor animals are getting tortured to death. Oh God. How can we save them. ? Most of the people who talk about animal rights are nonVegitarian.it means they do their love for animal is fake. How can you eat someone whime you love. Only demons would to it. And today most of the men are demons .

  7. Marilyn on March 14, 2019 at 11:06 AM

    This should be shown to everyone. They need to see just what they are paying for. To see the innocents treated this way would make many people vegans. Have a heart and GoVegan.



    • Michelle Headlam on May 31, 2020 at 1:52 AM

      Utterly deplorable.



  8. Carole Cornick on March 14, 2019 at 9:52 AM

    The most evil animal on this planet is the 2 legged humanid. It makes me sick to look at these pictures but as a Vegan I am pleased not to be a cause of their suffering. How anyone can eat meat or fish after seeing this is beyond me! If you struggle with the concepts shown here imagine that every animal pictured is your pet dog or cat! How does it feel?
    We do not need to eat animals of any kind, nor do we need to wear their skins, or drink their milk!
    It is not an effort to change, but it does take belief, belief in yourself and in what you are doing, be prepared to be attacked by others and ridiculed. I was. But I am still vegan and not likely to change!

      I used to be a free range pig farmer I never saw anything like this, our abourtars are highly vetted transporting animals have to be documented from play a to place thousands in fines or prison if not done please reply.



      • Sara Bee on May 31, 2020 at 8:45 AM

        To be honest , it doesn’t really matter how regulated abattoirs are , the animals are all terrified when they get sent to them , they can smell the fear and death of the animals that have gone before them ( yes , I have been to one ) and while I am sure that some farms treat their animals better than others , we still do not have the right to take the life of a sentient animal when we have no need to do so. Can I suggest you watch ‘Land of Hope and Glory ‘ on YouTube , it was all filmed undercover in UK farms , including High Welfare and Red Tractor approved ones , in the las 5 or 6 years



  11. Bobah Rob on March 12, 2019 at 4:13 PM

    Nice to see there are so many decent people who care about the innocent animals we torture and kill. We do not need meat to survive, look how many Vegans and Vegetarians that live long and healthy lives on this Planet! DO NOT EAT MEAT SAVE A POOR ANIMAL FROM A HIDEOUS DEATH.



  12. Colin quelch on March 12, 2019 at 10:07 AM

    There’s nothing on this planet that we can’t kill a or destroy ..and humans are the only species on this planet that kills it own kind strickly for pleasure …. so as I say way to often…WHO ARE THE REAL ANIMALS HERE ????



  13. Glenda chambers on March 12, 2019 at 7:58 AM

    Disgusting humans. Totally agree with all above.i was stopped at a train crossing. The boom gates went down and watching the cattle train going by. This poor cow looked at me. I swear she looked me in the eyes. It felt like a wave came over me. I started bawling my eyes out sitting there. That was 12 yrs ago I turned vege.Then about 4 yrs later I turned vegan. I can’t stand knowing there are cruel damn monsters out there doing this to God’s creatures.



  14. elainia l. durell on March 11, 2019 at 6:57 PM

    I am a vegan for 23 years.. I sis because I joined PETA and shown the evil of factory farming..i cannot go by the meat counters in the stores without thinking about the animals and how they suffer for this.. makes me sad.



  15. Delene St Clair on March 11, 2019 at 3:47 PM

    Vegan, Vegan Vegan. No one will ever convince me otherwise.



  16. Trisha Powell on March 11, 2019 at 3:15 PM

    Monsters,it takes a certain type of person to inflict this sadistic cruelty on innocents how do they see their suffering it is sickening they are not human compassion has gone it’s hard to see these photos I think all should see this horrendous cruelty no matter how hard at just what goes on behind closed doors to these poor animals to let this continue we are all guilty.Ihave gone vegan,,after watching earthlings I never knew that horror like this was being done to them I was physically sick couldn’t stop weeping It’s got to be stopped end this suffering people together can move mountains I am now atheist none with any feelings can ignore this hell once aware of it,it makes you wish you were there to to stop them and comfort the suffering animals



  17. kathy on March 11, 2019 at 2:14 PM

    • Mary McMahon on March 11, 2019 at 3:13 PM

      Breaks my heart. I stopped eating animals and dairy 2 yrs ago. Ashamed it took me so long. Now I am aware.



  19. Sondra Sweeney on March 11, 2019 at 6:46 AM

    Twenty plus years ago I saw some videos about factory farms and what goes on there. It made me sick to my stomach and the next day I made up my mind that I could no longer look at meat the same way ever again. When I went grocery showing I couldn’t go past the meat counters with packaged meats without the scenes I had seen flashing in my minds eye. Several months later, a friend suggested I might like to try a Restaurant she had gone to that had fabulous steaks. I said thanks but I don’t eat cows. She looked at me funny, and she said you mean beef? I said “There was a time I would have said that, but some months ago I saw videos of the way animals are treated so we can eat them. It was so horrendous that I can’t even go past the meat counter without feeling ill.” She looked at me as if I was crazy, and she has never spoken to me about going to a restaurant ever again. That’s okay!
    I have not thought about eating a cow, a pig, a lamb, etc.ever again. Do I miss a juicy hamburger, spareribs, etc. Not in a very long time!



  20. Sondra Sweeney on March 11, 2019 at 6:06 AM

    Over 20 years ago I as videos of what goes on at factory farms. I was so sick of what goes on that I decided to stop eating meat. 20+ years later I can’t even look at the packaged meat in the supermarket because the scenes that I saw in videos flash through my minds eye, and I feel sick to my stomach. I get teased when I tell start to tell someone who tells me that they had a awesome steak in some restaurant. That I ought to try their steaks, and I tell them I don’t eat cows. They stare at me because I didn’t say that I don’t eat Beef. Then I have to explain why I say it that way. It turns them off. Oh well, I need them to understand where I’m coming from and how I feel about animal torture!



  21. Cynthia Woods on March 11, 2019 at 5:51 AM

    Animal or Human we are flesh and bone. Whomever is in charge of such animal all demonstrated and explained above… please don’t be someone who sits behind a desk or away from the actions of the decisions you enforce. Are you a man? Will you allow your testicicles to be cut by yourself or another without pain relief & anaesthetic, then continue your daily life?
    Are you a woman, will you allow yourself or someone to cut your private parts without anaesthetic and pain relief, then go on to continue your daily life?
    We all feel , we all bleed, we all sense what’s about to happen be positive or negative.

    I can only ask that you consider what animals endure that you have a say in, first think before signing decisions to go ahead.

    looking at this makes me sick to my stomach,,,i like to hang them ALL,,,i will not say what i really like to do,,,,,but hell is too good for them,,,



  28. Gerry on February 15, 2019 at 6:04 PM

    Like many other animals, humans are omnivores, and therefore there is no reason we should stop eating meat, anymore than any other species of animal that is omnivorous should stop eating meat.

    Please stop shoving your weird morality down our throats. You act like the religious right when it comes to this stuff.



    • Toni on February 16, 2019 at 6:02 PM

    • Chris on March 11, 2019 at 7:53 AM

      You have every right to eat what you want, however I don’t think you can call wanting to avoid animal torture a “weird morality”. Instead of going vegan, why not try sourcing your meat and dairy from a reliable ethical source? This is something I’m trying to do. It’s difficult because it requires research and it’s less convenient than just buying from the Supermarket. It’s more expensive because the shops I need to use aren’t mega-corporations that can price crunch. It’s a step I’m taking this year to try to make the world a better place.



  29. Liz on February 15, 2019 at 11:38 AM

    You suggest, to help, we go vegan for so many days. Why vegan over vegetarian? After reading this article, Im more inclined to go vegetarian but…..vegan!



    • Liz on February 15, 2019 at 5:32 PM

      Because the majority of those things would still happen if you were vegetarian. Dairy and eggs are just as, if not more cruel than just meat.



    • Isabella lee on February 20, 2019 at 8:51 AM

      Liz I was the same as you . I looked into the cruelty that goes on in dairy industry and that made me change to vegan . Watch Dominiom and Cowspiry.What the Health documentaries .



  30. Rose Gale-Kopiec on February 14, 2019 at 6:22 PM

    This article makes me realize a lot more why people decide to go vegetarian or vegan. I am a meat lover but will forever more think about the whole picture when I’m eating an animal. My goal is to live more of a vegetarian life not only to live longer by having cleaner arteries but to hopefully save some of this abuse being done. Hopefully everyone can start enjoying meatless Monday’s. You gotta start somewhere. ☮️



  31. Farmer John on February 14, 2019 at 5:29 PM

    What about killing plants to eat them?

    Plants have feelings too!

    Humans have to kill something to survive. It has to be a plant or an animal.

    I eat plants and animals.

    Ok minerals are not being killed. I eat minerals too.

    • Kinder World on February 14, 2019 at 1:48 PM

      Hi Ros!

      In the first picture we can see how the lambs are kept in a device that prevents them from moving and lifts them to the height of the workers.

      They are restrained so the workers can easily castrate them, tag their ears, cut their tails, vaccinate them, etc. In most farms, these procedures are performed without painkillers and while the lambs are fully aware.

  34. Renee on February 13, 2019 at 3:21 PM

    “There has to be a more humane way to kill them”
    THERE’S NOT!
    Ever think that maybe we should just not kill them at all. If these port creatures have to suffer like this, maybe the entire human race should reconsider its wants and needs. There is no need for this kind of violence in the world. No person would ever be treated like this, so why should these animals with no voice. No way to tell us it’s not okay. Humans are the most destructive force inn Earth, but no ones stops us from our horrible crimes. We don’t deserve these ‘luxuries’, just as they don’t deserve our brutality.

  37. Eatwhatyouwant on February 13, 2019 at 5:23 AM

    For all the non meat eaters who say eating meat is wrong, unacceptable and hate on those who do enjoy eating meat..

    Are we going to turn other carnivores into vegans too? Humans are, by design carnivores.. we have the freedom to eat or not eat anything we chose. Not one choice is right over the other!

    The key here is to change the way humans treat animals.. how they are treated when alive and being grown as food and then prepared for food.. respect the animal, don’t abuse it or cause it to suffer. THAT is the true issue.

    How about some outrage for the treatment of human babies …. those being wrongfully killed by their own mothers.. how about lend some attention to what humans physically do to their own unborn simply because they would be an inconvenience. Rather than take measures to prevent a life they didn’t want, humans rather murder their unborn , sometime up to the time of birth.

    Humans…….. we are selfish, greedy and all about what WE want.



    • visceral-surreality on February 13, 2019 at 4:34 PM

      Humans are omnivores, able to eat both meat and plants. Cats, snakes, and sharks are obligate carnivores. That means that they HAVE TO eat meat. Humans do not. “By design carnivores”? Compare the teeth and digestive tracts of humans to the animals I just mentioned.



    • Andrew on February 14, 2019 at 9:00 AM

      Pathetic lame argument.



    • Tracy Joseph on February 14, 2019 at 12:25 PM

      Wow…your empathy for animals is just outstanding! You do, however, bring up the disgusting act of abortion. I do agree with you…outrage should be aimed here too and, if you see anti-abortion pins, it so often is. However, perhaps it is easy for you to feel this way about abortion because you feel this is morally wrong and therefore wouldn’t do it as I wouldn’t do it.
      It becomes more difficult when one is shown something morally wrong to which you are indirectly contributing. The easiest path is to ignore one’s part in the abuse and to divert attention to an equally immoral social behaviour to which one isn’t conributing. The harder, and, of course, the more mature and enlightened path is to accept one’s moral resposibility to all living beings and not to cause such beings harm either directly or indirectly.
      The choice not to eat animals sends a clear message to farmers that animals will not be abused in our name. They cannot continue without the financial backing of the consumer.



    • Lil on February 14, 2019 at 4:22 PM

      Love this comment. I agree that its in the method we choose. I have no problem eating less mest if it means cutting of mass production because greed is mostly what causes these places to treat animals this way instead of in a more humane way. I also dont feel the need to eat every damn living thing.

  39. Krissoula Vincent on February 12, 2019 at 11:57 AM

    So PERFECTLY put, Guy!!! So many of those who eat meat continuously do their best to justify the UNJUSTIFIABLE. There definitely is no humane way to slaughter an animal. Nor does any animal sacrifice their lives for the humans who exploit them. The whole of the AG Industry is steeped in CRUELTY!!! I HATE how so many turn a blind eye & deaf ear to such ATROCITIES by supporting both the meat & dairy industries. Every animal deserves to live out their lives in PEACE, & should not have to forcefully end up in pieces on someone’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner plates. I’m so pleased that my conscience won’t allow me to eat the flesh of animals, or use dairy products in order to sustain my life.

      This device is used to “process” the lambs (to castrate them or put tags in their ears, for example). This specific device is not used at every place, but castrating lambs is a standard practice in the meat, dairy and wool industries.



  41. Carmen on February 11, 2019 at 8:58 PM

    I like meat and sausages. I think the best way is, to breed and raise them up as we did in former times. Each family had her own few animals. It was usual to see chicken, geese, pigs, cows and so on in the garden. When they were slaughtered, each part was used from the animals. Nothing was thrown away. We have lost the value of a life. Not only the value of animal’s life. Social media today is more important than social contacts in real life. The old people next door are lonesome, nobody cares about it. So why should people care for animals?! Everybody says me first. America first, Europe first…. If this behaviour does not change, we will see more and more of these pictures.



    • Asma on February 12, 2019 at 2:07 PM

  43. Audon on February 11, 2019 at 4:46 PM

    Go Vegan.
    It’s the best way to prevent killing and torture as well as not funding it.



  44. Sandy on February 11, 2019 at 4:36 PM

    Sadly not eatting meat would not stop cruelty . I do believe in eatting meat but prefer humaine killing quickly . I don’t agree with veal production or taking calves away from mother’s. As to the killing of chicks , I don’t agree with that either but it’s what your cats do too. I would like to see the useless public schools used to teach humanity toward animals however



    • Rionol on February 11, 2019 at 10:14 PM

      Sandy, there is no such thing as “humane” killing. No sentient being wants to die! Cats on the other hand are obligatory carnivores, they don’t purchase their chicks from a grocery store. HUMANITY towards animals is to go VEGAN that is the only way. Otherwise, watch https://www.dominionmovement.com/watch and then think about things…..



    • Guy Debord on February 12, 2019 at 12:22 AM

      Not eating meat would stop cruelty on a massive scale. It wouldn’t stop nature but it would stop the manmade factory farming system. So yes it would stop a massive amount of misery that humans put into action.
      how can you teach humanity towards animals if you ultimately kill them?
      There is NO such thing as humane killing. That is one of the most ridiculous catchphrases ever.
      death is death. stop trying to comfort yourself. you are still murdering a creature that wanted desperately to live.
      But it’s what your cat’s do- but we are not cats. We are humans we should be able to consciously evolve.
      Useless public schools? please.



      • J Miller on February 12, 2019 at 5:21 AM

      • Krissoula Vincent on February 12, 2019 at 11:53 AM

        So PERFECTLY put, Guy!!! So many of those who eat meat continuously do their best to justify the UNJUSTIFIABLE. There definitely is no humane way to slaughter an animal. Nor does any animal sacrifice their lives for the humans who exploit them. The whole of the AG Industry is steeped in CRUELTY!!! I HATE how so many turn a blind eye & deaf ear to such ATROCITIES by supporting both the meat & dairy industries. Every animal deserves to live out their lives in PEACE, & should not have to forcefully end up in pieces on someone’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner plates. I’m so pleased that my conscience won’t allow me to eat the flesh of animals, or use dairy products in order to sustain my life.

    • walt on February 11, 2019 at 2:17 AM

      Teach this to the children, and perhaps the next generation will put a halt to it. When it tastes good, apparently torture and killing are ‘fair game’.. 🙁 Even the bible says, thou shall not kill. Unless it tastes good it should say.



    • Simon on February 11, 2019 at 9:44 AM

      @ Margaret Harris

      Because there are no laws protecting animals in slaughterhouses: all the inspections are done voluntarily by meat industry groups themselves (literally the fox guarding the hen house) and there is no legal requirement for them to have inspections. In many cases animal cruelty laws don’t even apply to factory farms – the laws make special exception for them. For example it’s against the law to cut off your pet’s testicles, but not a pig’s in a farm, because farms have special exemption from animal cruelty laws. The whole system is a complete joke and nobody cares because it’s such a massive industry and money corrupts everything.

      As for the psychological reasons about why its allowed to continue: http://www.eatplantsdrinkbeer.com/readup/2016/1/16/veganism-a-tough-pill-to-swallow



  53. Caroline Shore on February 10, 2019 at 7:51 PM

    I cannot un see what I have read here. Thank you for this hard education. I won’t be going vegan any time soon as I hardly eat meat and dairy now but do enjoy it when I do have it. I have my own hens for eggs. I will think more strongly about where I get my food from and how it has ended its life.

    This seems to be getting worse by the day.
    Animal cruelty of some sort seems to be accepted even in the dairy industry.
    Why is there no control over this? There are animal welfare laws in most countries so if this is exposed why is nothing done about t.
    Why is an animals life worth any less than a humans?



  64. Kathy on February 9, 2019 at 2:34 PM

    This makes me lose faith in the human race.Not all people of course,but the ones capable if doing this.I understand that they need their jobs.If meat is going to be a mainstay in the human diet,there must me a more humane way.If God judges us,on the way we treat his animals,we are in trouble.WE can’t just continue to turn our heads,and pretend it doesn’t happen.I COULD not ever do any of these terrible acts of cruelty,even if it meant my survival.They safe suicide rates are high amongst those working in slaughterhouses.These images will forever haunt me.I spend so much time praying ,for the suffering of innocent,helpless animals ,not just the ones in the meat/food industry.The thought that some human minds,are capable of causing such suffering,without compassion,and remorse.The Internet is great,in the fact that it is making awareness of the cruel,inhumane and painful misery animals are facing daily.Some of my friends and family get upset,when I post sad images and petitions regarding animals.We have to be their voice,and stand up for them,and give them rights,and justice.Rest in peace my dear animal friends.You matter to many! Let’s hope that we can eventually stop future suffering,misery,and needless terrifying deaths for them.



    • Kirill on February 9, 2019 at 7:30 PM

      if theres a humane way to kill a calf for food legally, i should have the right to humanly kill a dog or child. its humane right?

      theres nothing humane about any kind of killing. meet and other animal products have been proven to e the cause of heart disease wich is the num 1 cause of death. meat is also the number 1 cause of greenhouse gas pollution, deforestation and world hunger. if you done believe me look it up. theres a great free documentary called H.O.P.E. and i recommend every1 to wach it.

      every time you buy an animal product you are literally paying money for this to keep happening. you are the reson its so bad, because you are the one giving them money and paying for it. quit the demand and the supply will drop

        @MA lol not even close. first of all untill it comes out, its a fetus and second of all, no one tortures babies for years like they do here. a fetus has practically no life, no memories, no anything. its just removed.

        these animals are not instantly killed in the womb were they dont feel much of anything. these animals for the most part are brutally tortured for years.

        shit in america, male genital mutilation is still popular and its a fucked up procedure with no health benefits that leads to subconscious emotional scarring along with huge infection risks. babies have died from that.

        if all humans die the planet would thrive but if only a single insect species was to vanish the whole planet would be in dissary. people need to learn to be more compassionate to all living beings

      • Travis on February 10, 2019 at 5:10 AM

        Stop! Stop spreading false information about the NY law! It is obvious that you are just regurgitating far right fear mongering. Please take the time to look up the law and read it carefully. One thing the law does that the conservatives don’t ever mention, it actually will save more fetuses from being aborted because of a misdiagnosed condition. Many developmental problems do show up in the second trimester, but a correct diagnosis has a low % of being correct. So a mother given the choice of aborting at that time of risk going full term. If she goes full term, and the diagnosis is correct, it’s 100% that the fetus will be still born. But if the time for abortion is allowed up until delivery, those fetuses that were aborted in the second trimester that were misdiagnosed, would now be delivered! But if the diagnosis is correct, then the mother can still have the abortion in the third trimester and not have to carry a dead fetus for those remaining weeks. Which is very risky for the woman’s health.
        Also, there are no doctors or delivery staff that would kill a viable fetus! Not before delivery or after delivery. Once that fetus is delivered it is a “person” and the doctor and staff are then responsible for two patients. So please please stop with this bad information. Not only is it wrong, but ultimately, any decision about abortion is for the mother and her health care providers. This includes multiple doctor, mental health care workers, etc.

    Why, just because it’s cheaper?
    Is that what these animals lives and hearts are worth to us?
    Just so you can pay less for a sausage?

    If animals are going to die at all for your burgers.. at least appreciate them enough to let them live a little and die without pain. Even if it costs more to do it. Let them have their mothers. Let them see sunlight and snuggle down comfortably to rest.

    And If you cant afford it, and you want the luxury or eating meat at a cheaper price, Then you shouldn’t eat meat at all!
    You don’t need meat in your diet!

    If you wouldn’t do it yourself, then why support it, don’t ignore it, that’s selfish and just as cruel.

      How on earth could someone think using anesthesia could right the wrong of unnecessarily taking someone else’s life now that a few minutes of palate pleasure never outweighs someone’s life and given that nobody in a modern society needs animal products? It is never about HOW we use or kill them that is the essential wrongdoing, it is the fact THAT we use animals that are here with us and no more for us to use as a mere thing than black people are here to be used by white people, or women are here to be used by men. The basic birthrights of animals are not to become property nor to be used as a thing, a mere instrument, a resource, a sport, to test on, or any other purpose that suits us but denies their right to exist for themselves…

        There is no such thing as humane slaughter. Slaughter men are paid by numbers so it’s a factory assembly line. You are kidding yourself if you believe that animals have a peaceful death. While in the killing line they can smell death and hear the screams of those being killed before them. A slaughter house is an animal concentration camp with even more innocent victims.

  99. Keri Cronin on February 8, 2019 at 1:20 PM

    Choising to not eat meat although honorable will not change the animal rights laws for food service cruelty. Perhaps petitions, documentaries and actual letters to the proper legislative parties will make a difference. It seems farmers only want animals who are producing some income for them and not looking at their business with social responsibility to create a safe ecosystem for these innocent animals. Today’s society doesn’t seem to value human life either so this battle will be an uphill one. I live in NY and they just passed the full term abortion law. The world has become disenchanted with no morals, no empathy and no compassion for eachother or life. I love animals and wish the food industry would be fined and some places closed down for what they do. Keep me posted on the progress.

    Which countries are doing these despicable atrocities?. If you have photographic and video evidence, what are you doing with it? Asking people to stop eating meat is understandable but would take forever to work. Surely their are laws which are being broken, are these places being closed down?

        And Australia kills its kangaroos and koalas to make way for clearcutting and building houses or adding to farmland. Australia also does not believe in TNR and thus kills its feral cats in a never-ending bloodbath, I’ve been involved in TNR in the US for decades and it really DOES make a difference– and as far as killing birds– the cat that kills the most birds is the CATerpillar Bulldozer that knocks down whole forests in a matter of days….. and another deadly blow to birds and other beings is the application of chemical weed killers and lawn treatments — please folks, use natural practices and save this world!! Weeds are not that unattractive– especially dandelions, which are the First Spring Food For BEES.

  106. LLS on February 8, 2019 at 10:36 AM

    I‘ve stopped eating meat almost 10 years ago and feel fantastic. However, the root of the problem isn’t eating meat or drinking milk but human ignorance, the definition of animals as “things” and our allover arrogance towards the world’s other creatures. To this we have to add the fact that we’re more numerous every day with a life style that requires more and more abundance of food and other natural resources. Also plants are being treated in a very bad way and also plants are living beings. In the current state of evolution, we’re a cancer to the planet. The only chance we have is to find ways to change our needs and control the birth rates in certain countries as well as educate everybody in the world about what aliving being actually is and changing the definiton of animals (and plants) as “things”. Well, ask your supermarket owners, mega corporations and politicians if they have an interest in doing this! This is the actual problem.



    • RE Almanace on February 8, 2019 at 3:57 PM

      All of you kind and caring people are making a change One Person At A Time. You ARE making a difference. Sadly, corporate heads and farmers and others involved in this seem to have no souls. Don’t ever let that stop you. Even if you don’t want to approach them, you have other avenues of communication. The Animal Rights Conference in the US (in VA in 2019, in LA in 2020) is a 3 1/2 day immersion in learning sharing and discussing these topics — I highly recommend it.



  107. Nicola Thompson on February 8, 2019 at 10:09 AM

    So shocking all my senses are screaming. I dont eat meat I stopped 8 years ago for my health and never started again. Only more recently have I realised I dont actually want to eat an animal it is unecessary. We are fortunate enough to have a woodland garden and ponds so I share my space with birds, animals and trees that choose to be here; we are a happy community. Keeping a connection on a personal level with nature is real.



  108. Terence on February 8, 2019 at 9:06 AM

    I stop eating meat 5 years ago.. Never regretted at all.

  114. Wilma Knight on February 8, 2019 at 1:43 AM

    Animals if for whatever must be used for meat shouldn’t be allowed before a certain age, and should be allowed as nature intended to be with their mothers brothers and sisters in a natural environment. It’s good sense as this produces better animals which in turn better produce . We don’t eat as much as we produce and humans cannot use animal hormones in a manner that is good for the body, it’s a myth to say milk is good for you, it’s full of hormones to build a calf up , hence we have a lot off obesity in this day and age and a lot of hormones related illnesses . No animal should be made to suffer ever. We have ways of making thing easier than brute force trauma to end a life . We live in a time of greed and with no company that thinks more than profit it’s a horrific time for all farm animals . It angers me beyond belief.

  128. Brynn on February 7, 2019 at 5:05 PM

    We need to pass legislation now that makes this treatment punishable with a monetary fine for the company and prison time for the offender. This is sick and extremely cruel behavior and needs to be outed. We enjoy eating meat occasionally so there needs to be a better solution than turning vegan. Prison time with mandatory animal cruelty classes might make them think twice about hurting any living thing again. Especially innocent animals that are raised for food.

There is far too much talking and ignoring how the majority of people feel about this. I also believe in the desire to produce the cheapest meat, government appears to be hand in glove with the animal food producers. I don’t ever remember seeing animal welfare being on a political party manifesto, I wonder why?! The producers would be outraged! Petitions seem to be ignored, I think it needs something more radical with public demonstrations against this and the weak laws relating to blood sports, such as hunting with dogs, too many loop holes, weak policing and many of the hunters are members of the judiciary.

          Tut mir leid aber ich denke nicht das “Sie nicht mehr essen” die grundsätzlich richtige Lösung ist. Versteht mich nicht falsch, DAS… bzw. alles an Bildern/Videos das kinderworld.org hier zeigt, zeigt wie hochgradig giftig und erstickend, der Mensch für diese Erde ist. “Sie nicht mehr essen”, das ist für mich etwa das gleiche wie “lasst keine Asylanten mehr rein” oder “lasst Sie alle rein, die brauchen hilfe”. Was ich damit sagen möchte? Keiner sieht (möchte sehen) oder versucht es zumindest, einen MITTELWEG zu finden. Nein ich rede hier nicht vom “Artgerechten töten” wie es viele nennen würden. Ich rede von einheitlichen Preisen, massive Preiserhöhungen, regelmäßige Kontrollen mit harten Strafen und genormten Richtlinien/Vorschriften (EU ?). Vorschriften die Jahresproduktionslimits setzen, Altersnachweise bei Kontrollen usw. Was das bringen würde? Fleisch, Tierische Produkte, Produkte in denen (ohne unser Wissen “Tier” mit drin ist), sind für die meisten längst selbstverständlich und für die meisten unabdingbar. Der Mensch ist ein “Fleischfresser” das ist nun einmal so. Aber muss es jeden Tag das Salamibrot seit? Jeden Tag beide Kinder morgens 2 Schüsseln Müsli mit Milch? Am WE jedes mal Eier mit Speck oder Weißwürstchen? Wie viele schreien, aber schaffen es nicht einmal ein WENIG zurück zu stecken, sich Gedanken zu machen WAS kaufe ich. Mir ist klar das eine Milchkuh… eine Milchkuh ist und auch bleiben wird. Aber es macht für mich und sicher auch für das Tier, einen Unterschied ob es ohne Schmerz, Angst, Verletzungen, o.ä. zur Schlachterei gebracht wird, oder ob z.B. der Kuh die Hinterläufe weggezerrt werden und sie mit einem Bulli über einen gepflasterten Hof zur Schlachtbank geschleppt wird. Ferkel denen man mit einem stumpfen Gegenstand den Schädel eindrischt ohne zu wissen ob das Tier WIRKLICH tot ist. Noch besser, an den Hinterläufen packen und auf den Boden klatschen. DAS ist der Unterschied. Es geht nicht darum alle Tiere zu retten. Dafür ist es bereits seit Jahrtausenden zu spät. Es geht darum das selbst ein Tier in Gefangenschaft (auch wenn es ein Tier ist), ein wenig Würde und ein so gut als möglich schmerzloses Leben verdient hat. Danke
