I have spent a lot of years not paying attention. I mean sure I've always loved animals but I guess in a selfish way . I am a 53 year old woman and have stopped eating meat and am working on the rest

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

I forced myself to watch the entire thing and became extremely upset, it just justified me being a vegetarian and doing everything I can to help animals. There's a part in this video where they experiment on monkeys, that really got to me. You're right though, human beings are disgusting.

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.

Don't waste you precious energy on guilt feeling. You came out of the darkness, that all that matters. Moving forward, fight for animals till the end! Blessings heap upon you both <3

" animals pay a dear price simply forbling born into a world where humans see them as 'property'. these beings are not 'resources'. they are living, breathing, hurting members of our global family " (Anthony Damiano).

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 have see video where dogs and cats are killed with gas or with injection, I was shock when I see that video. Is no reason to kill animals, animals have the rights to live a life like humans, perhaps on this planet are so many asshole who abuse of them because they can t talk or defend theyself .I feel sorry for animals who are treated or killed for humans stupidity.

@ Colin Wright: To expound, when you say (accurately) that "Livestock can be phased out over the course of their natural lifespans," do you also realize that at one time PETA did not favor companion animals (dogs, cats, birds, etc.) either, and wanted the practice stamped out? Their thinking (noble) was to minimize the possibility of animal suffering. They cite No-Kill modality examples of underfunded shelters / poor caretaking, etc., being cases of neglect, which sadly happens. But is this...

But is this plain incompetence or mismanagement of an otherwise capably humane system? If so, then meat-eating animal advocates could use the same argument. Humane treatment is the goal - the methods are the debate. Finally, do those with the approach that "karma's a bitch, or what comes around goes around, or god will get these abusers," etc., get a pass (to simply standby and rationalize justice coming from something / someone else instead of making a difference themselves) from you?
