I'm an avid anti animal cruelty person, BUT I'm not a vegan or vegetarian by choice. If other people wish to be either, that's entirely their business, so long as they don't try to foist their views on others.

We are not trying here Rick to impose our views at all.. :( Seriously - its up to anyone of our members to watch and share. Their choice and what you do after you watch it, is your business alone . J

I disagree. Too many people won't come out and tell the truth. If you eat animals you're not really against cruelty. You're only against looking like you're cruel, trying to fool yourself and other people. If you really care about animals you wouldn't contribute to 200 billion+ animals being tortured to death every year.

I watched the first 5 minutes on May 26th, 2011, and have been vegetarian ever since. Very powerful...I hope more people watch it. You can't watch it, and not be affected.

Most humans are hypocrites! People go on about abortion, and life being precious at inception, but no on say animals who are born should get a fair chance of life. A male calf is born, yearning for his mother's love and milk, but humans want the milk. So at 4-5 days of age he's taken away and crammed into a box to become food. This happens all the time with every animal. Wolves are tortured and slaughtered. Right now in Seoul Korea, they have their 2-month long dog meat (bokday) festival....

In a blazing heat, the dogs' snout is taped, they are tied, crammed in cages & when it's time to kill one they do it in front of others. The are electrocute, boil, BBQ, skin these animals alive because the distress makes the meat taste better. Cats are treated the same. This will go on in July & August. China, Korea, Indonesia, Taiwan, Thailand, Bali kill dogs & cats alive. Humans can be Godless, it's all in the name of greed and gluttony. There are days that I wish earth would self-destruct!

The Cruelty and Killing is Worldwide Rosalba not just in America, People in China and Korea eat Dogs and Cats which is bad enough but they torture them first. Apparently they believe the more the poor soul suffers and is afraid the better the meat tastes. Really? Really sickening.

@ Rosalba: When you say "killing for no reason," I wish this were limited to those that have no regard for animals, but sadly, even those claiming to care, have such sad results: http://www.nathanwinograd.com/?p=12153

I am now a 57 year old man who until 2 years ago was a committed meat eater, my wife was a veggie & I made fun of her all the time. 2 years ago I had a divine revelation & I gave up meat, I am now a vegan & still I cannot even begin to apologise enough to these poor animals for what I have done. I hang my head in shame as I am not as good an earthling as they are.

I understand how you feel about not being able to apologize enough for what was done in the past. Try to let go of the shame you feel Andy. Fight for Animal rights as much as you can. Spread the word about "Going Vegan" as much as you can as a way to make amends. That is what I am doing fighting for Animal rights (trying to anyway, seems like an uphill battle at the moment) and trying to spread the word about Veganism The Important thing is you changed Andy! Now the rest of Mankind has to. May love and peace be with you Andy.

If you are against animal cruelty you have to stop eating them, or else you are only paying lip service Rick!

@ LesleyDove: Okay, but by this statement, you conclude that there is no way to have humane processing of meat (which perhaps is true). But if true (which is the argument of PETA, HSUS and others), then couldn't one make this argument for humans even having companions animals altogether - as there are always possibilities of abuse there, too? So, the real question is, can humane standards be (better) regulated to avoid any abuse? That hasn't worked with companion animals. PETA has even...

So, the real question is, can humane standards be (better) regulated to avoid any abuse? That hasn't worked with companion animals. PETA has even heralded the killing shelters. They openly claim they "do not advocate the right to life for animals." http://www.nathanwinograd.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/postcard_0001.jpg

I would rather starve to death than have to do some of these jobs. This film has made me more convinced that I really don't like the human race but love animals. We are not here for the longterm so why do we feel we have the right to destroy another soul? sickening
