How to Reduce/Eliminate Animal Slaughter
Dec 31, 2011

Basically, this is about finding solutions to the problem of animals being brought to life simply to be put to death brutally for the benefit of the the human society (meat-eating, or any other use of animals). Yes, I understand that it's the food chain we're talking about here, but we're going against nature by doing intentionally giving birth to animals. And also, keeping them in huge quantities in a small space, locked up is something that should be considered equal to human torture. On the other hand we try to help animals in different aspects, but we seem to ignore these things. I always believe in equality. However, I understand due to current global economy, it is mandatory to be practicing this or else there will be a shortage of food, at least for a while. That's the point of this thread; to find out what you think.

Hey, I completely agree with you. I'm a vegetarian by-choice so I don't really buy their products, but I sure would like to do much more to try to put an end. Is there anything I can do?

I agree. If we stop supporting companies that produce meat by doing inhumane things to animals then they won't be financially stable enough to keep going. To do this would be a great challenge, more than just a few people would have to commit to this or it wouldn't really make a difference all. A shift towards vegan or even vegetarianism would be a great step forward.

Feeding the world hunger is always the common excuse used to justify all the killings. The only way I see it with a solution is still by converting to vegan diet. Again the question is whether we want to commit ourselves to it or just stop by with only words.

Basically, how I see is that as human beings, we are also considered animals. although being a vegetarian, I still believe eating meat, or other plants shouldn't be considered 'immoral', since animals eat each other or other plants in order to survive. But what I see wrong with the picture is that animals are brought to life only to be killed to feed us. The way they're being treated is like they're not living things, but just another product of the global trade. I don't think there's anything moral with that.

I feel that people need to think about all animals on the same level.

How would a meat-eater feel if someone killed their dog and ate it? it would be horrible.
If a dog is an animal and a pig is an animal, shouldn't the response be the same? it should all be considered the same. If you wouldn't eat a dog someone killed you shouldn't feel any better about eating a chicken, pig, or cow.

I guess it's a catch 22 situation with regards to feeding pets pat food that has animal by-products in it.

One easy solution is to go veggie or vegan!

check out Forks over Knives! a really great documentary on the negative effects of eating meat and animal products

http://www.forksoverknives.com/

some of my friends watched this doc and went vegan. it's that good!

Hi,
I agree that we need to do something about it. I'm actually interested in the slaughtering of horses and how to stop it. It is delicacy in Europe and they have no cares about the horrible way they are killed! Although it is illegal in the United States to kill horses, it isn't in Canada and Mexico. Any thoughts about this issue?

Referring to the most of guidance and recommendations either from the religious teachings or experts findings, eating and consuming too much meat (as is consumed by most people) are not witnessed. Looking at the life styles of prophets of God and great thinkers and scholars, almost the same results are witnessed.
On the other-hand, overweight is one of the most health problems of the contemporary man. We are converting lots of food and specially meat to making ourselves overweight.
It seems we can solve it by
1- eating less meat which will cut down the consumption and killing of animals in general and killing of horse and whale in particular.
2- when some of us eat less meat, hopefully those who are not able to purchase and eat a little meat find a chance to eat some.

Something that may help is buying "free-run" eggs and chicken.

There's also the option to buy wild fish.

We need to change our ways. Cows and pigs probably wouldn't be able to survive in the wild.

An alternate would be wild hog and buffalo.

So... does anyone here eat A LOT of meat?

The worlds meatpacking industry is dominated by a handful of corporations that process massive quantities of meat in huge plants. As a result of inadequate food safety standards and lax inspection practices by the USDA, these corporations are able to operate unsanitary facilities and send out meat contaminated with dangerous bacteria. These facilities are also extremely dangerous, and meat-packing is among the most hazardous jobs in the nation.

It is almost sometime no one has answered your question.
Using wild fish is one good choice but currently world wide fishing is not sustainable. A new order and perhaps international agreements are needed for sustainable fishing. In that order, fishing will be done on proper times and not when female fish is carrying lots of eggs in the body.
