JUST BECAUSE WE SEE THEM OFTEN AS FOOD, JUST BECAUSE WE EAT THEM, DOESN`T MEAN THEY DONT FEEL EMOTIONS, AND IN SAME CASES:LIKE PIGS, DUCKS AND SHEEP: COMPLEX EMTIONS, DUE TO THE FACT THAT THEY ARE INTELIGENT ANIMALS (SPECIALY THE PIG: SMARTE THAN A DOG!).
Imagine what animals with such profile suffer treted as mere objects, merchandise: placed in small cages loooking at the wall for hours, listening to the screams seeing their next cage partner go insane over the stress and boredom, and going himself insane, sort of realizing that the kind of treatment he his getting cannot lead to anything good or pleasent: death, that is what he feared, now, just wants it to come without pain or suffering, but...no such luck...
No other animal is as cruel as man, no other animal puts his victims to the cruel things I saw on pages and pages on the web and on youtube that made me sick and disapointed at the human race. That is of course, if you can call this mob humans...a well formed, good character human beeing would look into the animals eyes and see fear, panic, sadness, insanity, boredom: just as he would see in a human. It is notourious: THEY DO SCREAM! THEY DO GET RIGID MUSCLES AND EYES WIDE OPEN ON FEAR AND PAIN! THEY GET STEREOTYPED BEHAVIORS; THEY THEREFORE GET INSANE ASWELL. NOT HAVING EMPATHY TOWARDS FEELINGS IS CALLED PSYCHOPATHY...WELL, I WOULDNT GO SO FAR, BUT IIT IS LACK OF GOOD HEART, A GOOD PERSON WOULDNT BE ABLE TO BE AS COLD TO ANIAMALS AS SOME POULTRY OWNERS!
This videos below show how cold hearted and mean to do this to animals:
"...This is how a veal calf spends his first 4-5 months, before taking his first walk to the truck that will take him to the slaughter house -- if he's able to stand up or walk at all by then. Veal calves are deprived of their mothers and their mothers milk, so we can drink it instead. They are fed an anemic substitute, laced with antibiotics because they're sickly, and deprived of exercise to keep their meat tender and white. They are the by-product of the dairy industry, whose brief lives from confinement to slaughter represents the highest hidden cost of milk. (photo courtesy of Ohio U, SETA)..."
IN MANY COUNTRIES PEOPLE EAT TOO MUCH VEAL, THIS IS THE WAY THEY FOUND OF KEEPING IT TENDER...NOT LETTING BABY ANIMAL MOOVE AND LIVE, IN A STAGE OF LIFE WHERE THAT IS ESSENTIAL...BUT HEY...THEY ARE NOT GOING TO LIVE AT ALL ARE THEY? IT IS FROM HELL TO DEATH!
"...To produce %u201CPersian Lamb%u201D the mother sheep is killed just before giving birth and the fetus is extracted for it%u2019s pelt..." o.k...this is the horror of horrors: before giving birth to the lamb the mother is killed and her cub is taken from her womb alive but dying afterwords violently...they call it "PERSIAN LAMB" DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT EVER EAT IT!
AWAY FROM MOM, AFFECTION: FROM LIFE....BORN TO SUFFER...
PIGS IN CELLS AND CONFINED PLACES...
Pigs are highly intelligent, social animals capable of living up to 20 years. Today, over 95 percent of pigs are raised in automated confinement buildings spending their entire lives indoors. They are slaughtered at only six months of age. Their short lives are filled with misery.
The 'breeding stock' - female pigs kept to produce the piglets who are killed for meat - are kept in gestation crates while they are pregnant. Here they are unable to walk or turn around. Some of the larger sows barely fit in the crate. They are forced to live on cold, bare cement floors in their own excrement during their 4 month pregnancy. The European Commission%u2019s Scientific Veterinary Committee condemned gestation crates in a 1997 report because of the serious health and welfare problems. It stated sows in stalls have weaker bones and muscles, heart problems and more urinary tract infections. Crating pigs can also send them mad. Many pigs show 'stereotyped behavior', moving their heads backwards and forwards in an exact and constantly repeated motion, gnawing on their bars with the precision of a metronome. It is the same syndrome which causes zoo animals to pace relentlesssly, and as the UK government supported research states: 'this behavior resembles in many respects the development in humans of chronic psychiatric disorders..." http://www.vivausa.org/activistresources/guides/murdershewrote1.htm Remember: highly inteligent...
FOIE GRAS TERROR: STUCK THEM IN FOOD UNTIL THEIR LIVER SWELLS TO TWICE IS NORMAL SIZE. THEY FORCE THE ANIMALS TO EAT EVEN WHEN THEY ARE FAR TO FULL...
DONT EVER, EVER, EVER, EAT FOIGRAS!!! "...
Foie gras (translated literally from French as "fatty liver" and pronounced 'fwah grah') is produced by cruel and inhumane farming practices. At just a few months old, ducks are confined inside dark sheds and force-fed enormous amounts of food several times a day. A farm worker grabs each duck and, one by one, thrusts a metal pipe down their throats so that a mixture of corn can be forced directly into their gullets. In just a matter of weeks, the ducks become grossly overweight and their livers expand up to 10 times their normal size. .."(http://www.nofoiegras.org/) FILL HIM UNTIL HEBURSTS OR VOMIT: NO WAY TO SAY NO... PGLETS BARBACUE/ NEVER EAT LEIT%uFFFDO EM PORTUGAL OR PIGLET ANYWHERE...
Piglets get apart from their mom that ears him scream in pain while they cut of his teeth. She ears him but is jailed and just have to listen in stress. The poor animal barely gets the chance to see the world, to live at all...
OTHER SAD EXAMPLES:
CATTLE TRANSPORTATION AND SLAUGHTER
AGRESSION AND COLDNESS TOWARDS ANIMAL WELFARE
ANIMALS ARE TRETAED AS MERE OBJECTS
NUTRITION IS POOR AND IMPROPER
Respect for these 5 elements above: proper lodging: no pilled animals, no calls, no veal cells, no live to eat and die: AFTER ALL IT IS OUR HEALTH THAT IS IN CASE! H1N1 VIRUS, BSE and other ailments are caused by such unhuman way of breading animals.
Respect for animals in their transportation and slaughter (the less stress possible and merciful ways of slaughter)
formation courses for people working with animals and psychological tests aswell: no more bullies)
economical incentives to more natural and human ways to bread animals: like the biological method
campaigns to reduce meat consumption: it is bad for the health to exagerate and bad for the breading of animals (becomes mass breading)
A discipline on vegetarian food and cooking in schools: vegetarianism is the future.
Provide supermarkets good conditions to trade on biological meat and others bio. products.
