I’m No Animal-Freak, But…..

I’m the farthest thing from an animal-freak, but I recently saw this disturbing and heartbreaking video about the meat industry; how animals are tortured and slaughtered and it made me glad I’m a vegetarian; I mean, of course I KNEW the animals were killed for meat(that’s obvious) but I wasn’t aware how brutal and cruel it actually WAS; I had assumed they were killed in a quick and humane manner but this is not the case; it showed how cute baby piglets were mercilessly slammed to the ground, heads stomped on, and male chicks(who are discarded as they cannot lay eggs) were separated and sorted and put alive  into grinding machines,chickens were grasped by the feet upside down and  scalded into boiling water to remove feathers while they were still alive,  baby calves were punched in the head until dead and cows had some electrical thing zapped into the top of their head and into their brain and then their throats were slit,and some animals were even skinned alive and left to die slow painful deaths. It made me glad I no longer eat meat, and I’m not an animal-freak by any means, but I AM human and I DO have feelings and compassion and this video was just sad and left a lasting impression.It was just wanton, senseless, unnecessary cruelty and it was heartbreaking.
