So a girl throws puppies in a river to drown,

and everyone is so shocked at how unbelievably cruel that is.
But you will gladly eat these adorable animals for dinner? In east Asia it is acceptable to eat cats and dogs, just as it is acceptable to eat lamb here.

If you can’t kill it yourself, you’re a coward for eating it. Just because they’re not household pets, does not therefore mean you have any more right to slaughter and eat them. Don’t give some ill thought out excuse like  “Dogs are smart, pigs etcetera are stupid and gross, so it’s okay for me to eat them” – Pigs are the third most intelligent animals on the planet after human beings, does that make eating a dog okay?

What this girl did to the puppies is horrible, but if you buy and consume meat you can hardly judge.  The way animals are treated as they are brought up for slaughter is not ‘humane’, and the way this girl left these puppies to drown isn’t much worse. How so? Well, they certainly do not  give cows, pigs, sheep, fish, chicken, turkey or any other regularly consumed animal a pain-free, ‘humane’, never-ending-sleep educing injection. They make their lives a living hell as they are forced into painfully living cramp conditions, where they will be fattened up, before they are beaten, electrocuted and have their throats slit and are left to bleed to death.  Cows, before being turned into a fancy leather jacket or a pair of boots, are starved before D-day so that their skin is loose enough to be ripped off of them, sometimes before they’ve even died. Suddenly a few minutes if drowning doesn’t look so bad; I know what option I would choose, if I’m ever given the ultimatum.

If you deem what that girl did to those cute and innocent puppies as wrong, cruel, and uncalled for, then take a closer look at your plate during your next meal time. No matter how it might be served up,  it’s a dead carcass all the same. Our attitudes towards meat isn’t biological, it is determined by the societies we live in. It’s not hard to change once you face up to, and accept,  the truth.

    Remember that criticism is more credible when it’s given in a composed manner, don’t just shout ‘YOU’RE A SILLY CUNT AND HERE’S WHY’.
    But other than that, good points, haha
