Animal Lovers Don’t Eat Animals

I really wish that humans would be kind to us.

The indifference, callousness, and contempt that so many people exhibit toward animals is evil first because it results in great suffering towards animals, and second because it results in an incalculably great impoverishment of human spirit.
( Ashley Montagu )

We generally accept that it’s natural for carnivorous wild animals to kill other animals in order to live. But people don’t often think (or even know) about the extraordinary and unnatural suffering that humans inflict on the animals that we freely harvest for food, with the help of modern high technology and the animal food sciences.
( Marc Bekoff )

If the millions of caged animals in the world could speak, what might they say.

If you eat animals, you don’t love animals. You love to eat them.
( Andrew Kirschner )

Each soul taken by violence, violates all humanity.
( Anthony Douglas Williams )

Crying is the only way animals can speak when they are unable to explain the pain they are suffering.

Our treatment of animals, in every department, is deeply and systematically immoral. Becoming a vegetarian is only the most minimal ethical response to the magnitude of the evil.
( Colin McGinn )

I have no doubt that it is a part of the destiny of the human race, in its gradual improvement, to leave off eating animals, as surely as the savage tribes have left off eating each other when they came in contact with the more civilised.
( Henry David Thoreau )

How can we possibly behave in a ‘humane’ way when we rape a cow, steal her children, steal her childrens’ milk, and when she can no longer give enough milk and becomes ‘uneconomical’, we brutally kill her and mutilate her body.

When I look into the eyes of animals, I can feel their pain, I see the sadness in their heart, their spirit broken, their freedom lost. Their souls touch my soul.
( Rose Winfold )

When advocating for animals, we need to win hearts and minds, not arguments and debates.
( John Oberg )

Farmers, creatures with no conscience or compassion who profit from enslaving, abusing, hurting, and killing vulnerable animals.

Without close and reciprocal relationships with other animal beings, we’re alienated from the rich, diverse, and magnificent world in which we live.
( Marc Bekoff )

Dog lovers don’t eat dogs.
Cat lovers don’t eat cats.
Animal lovers don’t eat animals.

I think it’s immoral to harm them. And that seems to me to provide a very strong moral reason to be vegetarian. It seems to me that our treatment of animals is morally appalling, and that we ought to radically revise the way we live, precisely because they feel pain, they can be hurt, and we’re constantly hurting these creatures.
( Shelly Kagan )

I don’t understand the mentality of this, who sees a magnificent creature in its natural habitat and thinks to themselves they want to kill it ? The culture of ‘hunting’ is sick and twisted. I don’t understand why this sociopathic practise is legal.
( John Smith )

What really annoys me ?
Those who say they love animals and yet pay simpletons to kill and mutilate baby cows, baby sheep and baby pigs just so they can cook and feast on pieces of their little bodies.

Our interactions with animals tell us a good deal about how we perceive ourselves, who we are as animals. Our interactions with animals run deep, and in very pragmatic ways, these interactions affect both ourselves and the animals involved. Simply put, when we harm other animals we hurt ourselves, and when we protect and nurture other animals, we heal ourselves. 
( Marc Bekoff )

Whenever you’re feeling stupid, just remember..
There’s still people who believe that having blunt canine teeth makes them a natural meat eater.

I remember looking at the fear in her eyes. How could someone be so cruel ?
I thought as the hens cried. When will people realise that other animals have just as much the right as we do.
( Zoe Rosenberg )

The human body has no more need for cows’ milk than it does for dogs’ milk, horses’ milk, or giraffes’ milk.
( Dr Michael Klaper )

Real men protect the innocent, the weak, the helpless and the vulnerable.

Emotions are the gifts of our ancestors. We have them and so do other animals.
We must never forget this. 

( Marc Bekoff )

The hardest part about being a vegan is getting up at 3 am to milk the almonds.

Beyond the economics of production efficiency, animal welfare laws that require ‘humane’ treatment are really not about animals. They’re about humans and making humans feel better about using animals. We can comfort ourselves with the idea that we are acting in a ‘humane’ way.
( Gary Francione )

The purpose of cows’ milk is to turn a 65 pound calf into a 400 pound cow as rapidly as possible. Cows’ milk is baby cows’ growth fluid. Everything in that white liquid – the hormones, the lipids, the proteins, the sodium, the growth factors, the IGF, every one of those is meant to blow that cow up to a great big cow or it wouldn’t be there.
( Dr Michael Klaper )

Why is it that blood, rather than peace, sells ?
( Marc Bekoff )

If you want to eat animal products, then animals have to die.
You may not be holding the gun or the knife yourself, but you are complicit in their death.

Our treatment of animals and our attitude toward them are crucial not only to any pretensions we have to ethical behaviour but the humankind’s intellectual and moral evolution. Which is how the human animal is meant to evolve, isn’t it ?
( Joy Williams )

The single most important step an individual can take to reduce global warming is to adopt a meat and dairy-free diet.
( The United Nations )

When we say to someone, “Oh you’re behaving like an animal,” it’s actually a compliment rather than an insult. We need to work for a science of peace and build a culture of empathy, and emphasize the positive, pro-social side of the character of other animals and ourselves. It’s truly who we and other animals are.
( Marc Bekoff )

Animals should not require our permission to live on Earth.
Animals were given the right to be here long before humans arrived.

Is it possible, I ask myself, that all of them are participants in a crime of stupefying proportions ? Am I fantasising it all ? I must be mad. Yet every day I see the evidences. The very people I suspect produce the evidence, exhibit it, offer it to me. Corpses. Fragments of corpses that they have bought for money.
( J.M. Coetzee )

It’s amazing how many cruel, unnecessary and ignorant things are accepted because of so-called ‘tradition’. I’m not sure why this barbaric ‘tradition’ continues, they look so stupid dressed up like that.
( John Smith on ‘hunting’ wildlife animals in the UK )

Surely it is our animal nature that recognizes the divinity of the natural world in all its mystery and beauty, despite the distressing habits and limited perception that afflict our species. So perhaps our hope of redemption lies in the fact that we are animals, not that we are people.
( Elizabeth Marshall Thomas )

Just in case you didn’t know.
Veal is a by-product of the dairy industry.

Especially when it comes to animals used for food, humanity’s reasoning power and concern about fairness plummets.
( Karen Davis )

There was a time when man could communicate with all animals, but we have since forgotten their language.
( Anthony Douglas Williams )

I encourage everyone to go where their hearts take them, with love, not fear. If we all travel this road, the world will be a better place for all beings. Kinder and more humane choices will be made when we let our hearts lead the way. Compassion begets compassion and caring for and loving animals spills over into compassion and caring for humans. The umbrella of compassion is very important to share freely and widely.
( Marc Bekoff )

Pay for unhealthy animal proteins.
Then pay more for medical treatment.
Then die ignorant.

I return one last time to the places of death all around us, the places of slaughter to which, in a huge communal effort, we close our hearts. Each day a fresh holocaust, yet, as far as I can see, our moral being is untouched. We do not feel tainted. We can do anything, it seems, and come away clean.
( J.M. Coetzee )

For some time the monotheistic religions (Christianity, Islam, Judaism & Humanism) have been busy persuading us that humans are superior than anything else in the Universe and nothing else matters. The industrialism is an embodiment of this faith. Soon we will learn we have been wrong.
( Ann Must )

Some folks insist that believing in animal rights is like a religion.
But religion asks followers to believe in things nobody can see, while animal rights advocates ask followers to see things nobody can believe. 
( Craig Burton )

Pay towards the brutal murder of animals.
Ignore their pain and suffering.
Be cruel. Be selfish. Be stupid. Be sick.

Those who are incapable of pitying animals are, as a matter of fact, incapable of pitying men. A physician who would cut a living rabbit in pieces, laying bare the nerves, denuding them with knives, pulling them out with forceps, would not hesitate to try experiments with men and women for the gratification of his curiosity.
( Robert Ingersoll )

She looks into the eyes of the slaughter-man seeking help and compassion but sees only darkness and ignorance.

It’s incredible that there can exist a culture on this earth that sees this as an acceptable thing to do and incredible to think the world allows it to happen.
( John Smith on ‘hunting’ )

Until we consider animal life to be worthy of the consideration and reverence we bestow upon old books and pictures and historic monuments, there will always be the animal refugee living a precarious life on the edge of extermination, dependent for existence on the charity of a few human beings.
( Gerald Durrell )

The Feeling Of Power

Social psychologist Rob Alpha explains how researchers with the Genetic Economic Analytics Group found the neurophysiological link between sex and a man’s desire to hunt.. It turns out the same regions of the brain that are activated in the sex drive and orgasm are also activated by the compulsion to hunt and harvest animals.

Sadism may take a socially acceptable form (such as deer hunting and deer stalking) and other varieties of so-called ‘sport’.. These all represent the destructive and cruel energies of man directed toward more helpless creatures.
Perhaps more directly relevant are experiences in which individual infliction of pain on an animal or another person has given rise to sexual excitement.. We have noted elsewhere the connection between strong emotional and sexual stimulation.
( Dr. Karl Menninger, renowned psychiatrist, 1893-1990 )

Hunting may reflect a profound yet subtle psychosexual inadequacy.
( Dr. Joel R. Saper, University of Michigan )

Hunters are seeking reassurance of their sexuality.. The feeling of power that hunting brings temporarily relieves this sexual uneasiness.
( Margaret Brooke-Williams, clinical psychologist )

During the fall season across North America hunters reach peak ‘buck fever’, and clinicians report that incidences of domestic violence and wife-beating always peak the day before each species of hunting season opens.. If we could peer inside the unconscious mind of the hunter, we would find a Pandora’s Box of repressed sexual issues.. Whether or not hunters shoot deer to demonstrate sexual potency or out of sexual frustration, in symbolic lieu of raping and killing women, there can be little doubt that as a social ritual, much hunting is all about killing the feminine in the hunter’s own self.. Of course, if you ask any hunter why they love to hunt, there will never be a discussion of sexual repression, or the ‘killing of the feminine in the hunter’s own self’.. Most won’t even be able to explain their motivation at all.. A few of them will, however, make the case for hunting-for-food.
( Merritt Clifton, author )

If you have a sadistic desire to go hunting and kill, do it on a one-to-one basis armed only with the tools that you were born with.
I wonder how many of the morons would be brave enough ?
( Rose Winfold )

Proven Link Between Hunting And Small Penis Size ..
Diminutive male genitalia disorder (DMGD) has been considered only a theory in the scientific world, but now the long-suspected link between hunting and unusually small penis size has been established as scientific fact by the Diminutive Male Genitalia Disorder Research Organisation (DMGDRO).. The DMGDRO has conducted an extensive two-year study on men with diminutive male genitalia disorder.. Lead by Mike Streams and Brian Upchurch, who began their collaboration on human sexuality research while undergraduate students at Johns Hopkins University, DMGDRO is a team of New Orleans, Louisiana-based scientists interested in the study of male sexual disorders and dysfunction.. Having identified the genetic disorder linking small male reproductive organs and the ability to derive pleasurable sensations from killing in a controlled environment without fear of personal harm (as differentiated from war or fighting back in an attack by a human being), also known as “controlled victim” aggression manifestation.. “It’s really quite interesting,” Dr. Streams says.. “Like much folklore, it appears that, certainly in this case, there is a foundation in fact.. This is the first time that research has been conducted on men who hunt, and it shows quite definitively that the link between what we are calling ‘the thrill of the kill’ and a smaller-than-average penis is statistically significant.”.. Initial tests conducted on mice and rabbits proved inconclusive, but subsequent human test subjects showed what Dr. Upchurch calls “staggering results.”.. The subjects ranged from having a slight abnormality in penis size to a “pubis innyus” or inverted male pubic region.. As data were gathered, the numbers revealed a discrepancy so great that it seemed to suggest a genetic mutation.. By tracing what has been identified as the “DMGD gene”, an abnormality was discovered on the 21st chromosome.. Further investigation proved that this abnormality is consistently linked to two traits:  abnormally small reproductive organs and “controlled victim” aggression manifestation.
( DMGD Research Organisation, April 2005 )

The animals whose lives have been so cold-heartedly snuffed out have precisely the same capacity to feel pain and suffer as we do.
All leave family members or mates behind when they are killed, and none is exempt from grief.. We know that we should protect the most vulnerable and helpless in society, not destroy them, much less derive pleasure from doing so.
( Sir Roger Moore )

Hunters ? .. Sexually inadequate cowards with a high-powered rifle trying to see if they can kill a frightened creature that can’t shoot back.
( Rose Winfold )

Beware of those among us who do harm to animals, for they will do the same to infants, the weak, and the defenceless.
( Dion Felsrow )

In darkened forest, scared and afraid
The smug-faced coward fired a bullet through his brain
For the evil, perverted scum, a job well done.
( Rose Winfold )

The mouth of a kangaroo can be blown off and the kangaroo can escape to die of shock and starvation.. Forearms can be blown off, as can ears, eyes and noses.. Stomachs can be hit expelling the contents with the kangaroo still alive.. Backbones can be pulverised to an unrecognisable state.. Hind legs can be shattered with the kangaroo desperately trying to get away on the other or without the use of either.. To deny that this goes on is just an exercise in attempting to fool the public.
( David Nicholls, former commercial kangaroo shooter )

An ego boost for a small mind, as ‘hunters’ savour the flavour of murder.
( Dion Felsrow )

Animals have a similar intellect to young children.
They are innocent. They crave attention. They want to play.
They can’t speak. They don’t understand.
Abusing and mistreating animals is on the same level as abusing and mistreating children.
( Rose Winfold )

Adopt The Pace Of Nature

Are Badgers Being Made A Scapegoat ?..
An independent report by researchers at the University of Edinburgh revealed that 97 dogs were euthanised following an outbreak of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) at Kimblewink hunting kennels. This confirms that hunts are a major biosecurity risk.
The report also contains information which suggests both the hunt and Defra kept quiet about key aspects of the outbreak – such as claiming only 25 dogs were affected, rather than the actual total of 97.
Government statements about the outbreak gave the impression that there was no real threat of disease spread by hunting hounds – while at the same time they amended regulations to restrict the feeding of offal to hunting hounds.
If there was no threat – why change the regulations ?
The condition of the Kimblewick kennels – a typical hunt – is described as ‘suboptimal’, with dogs being kept in dirty, unhygienic conditions which are a breeding ground for disease. Some biosecurity measures were introduced at the kennels once the infection had been confirmed. However this backs up evidence that basic biosecurity measures at hunting kennels are generally low or non-existent.

Is The UK Government Turning A Blind Eye To Protect Fox Hunters ?..
The 97 dogs which were destroyed because of bTB are just the tip of a diseased iceberg. This story isn’t about one kennel infected with bTB, it’s about the way hunts routinely avoid even basic biosecurity and animal welfare measures, meaning their poor dogs are often living disease carriers.

There’s a simple truth here. When livestock dies, potentially of disease, it is given to hunts to feed raw to their hounds. These hounds are often in poor health due to kennelling conditions and lack of care, and pick up the disease. They then spread the disease back into the countryside – and the cycle continues. The government knows this is a huge risk but is either turning a blind eye or not giving people the full picture, both of which are unacceptable.
If farmers are concerned about disease on their farms, be it bTB or anything else, then they need to take a close look at any hunts in their area. There is stacks of evidence showing that disease can spread between livestock and hunting hounds, but the government seem intent on playing this down with misleading or disingenuous statements which deflect from the truth.
They brought in new regulations last year while pretending there was no problem when clearly there was. And those regulations won’t make any significant difference – it’s a clear case of shutting the kennel door after the hounds have bolted.
If this country wants to take disease control seriously and protect livestock, then proper biosecurity is vital – and that means stopping hunts from galloping all over farm land.
( Chris Pitt, Deputy Director of Campaigns at the League Against Cruel Sports )

Adopt the pace of Nature.. Her secret is patience.
( Ralph Waldo Emerson )

Eating Dogs In China Has Nothing To Do With Culture ..
Few people know that the dog-eating trade in China has absolutely nothing to do with culture.. While Ancient China condoned the consumption of dogs, the spread of Buddhism in the 10th Century saw a massive decline in dog meat, and from 1644 to 1912 when the Qing Dynasty reigned, dog meat was banned.. The Qing (Manchus) considered killing and consuming a dog to be barbaric.. This stemmed from the legend of the first Manchu leader, Nurhachi, whose life was saved by a dog.. He told his followers: “In the mountains, there are so many kinds of animals which you can hunt for food, but from now on, no one is allowed to eat dogs, nor wear dog skin. When dogs die, they should be buried because dogs can read man’s emotion and can rescue their masters. Dogs are loyal.”
For almost three hundred years, dogs were revered and beloved by rulers of China who considered the slaughter and consumption of them to be so heinous that they outlawed it.. Only in the south did they continue to defy this rule.. It all changed drastically in 1912 when the Kuomintang (KMT) Nationalist Party got to power.. As a symbol of their hatred towards the Manchu, they would boil dogs alive simply to spite them.. This was only the beginning of the dogs’ descent into hell, for when the communists subsequently took power a few decades later, Chairman Mao ordered the mass execution of dogs, declaring them filthy, unclean and representative of the elite.. This led to the annihilation of millions of dogs, perpetuating a widespread hatred of them which continues to this day.. So, let’s acknowledge China’s dog meat trade for what it truly is.. Not culture, but a political perversion that manifested in the last century and was the result of one political government hating the previous rulers.
( Sarah Brownlee )

China, A Country With Zero Animal Welfare Laws ..
Both international governments and citizens alike do not dare criticise another’s ‘culture’ for fear of being deemed racist.. The result ?.. A country with zero animal welfare laws, countless dogs being burned, boiled and skinned alive on a daily basis, and millions of grieving, weeping dog-lovers and owners throughout the country who have had their dogs snatched and killed for the trade, and are utterly powerless to act, because they have a government that simply will not listen to them.. For it is true that the majority of these dogs are stolen pets – and why ?.. Because if the dog is under-nourished, this could cause a potential health hazard for the consumer, and if a dog trader wants to ensure his meat is plump and well-fed, he only needs to look to the beloved pet of a family home where the dog has been cared for and looked after.. This adds a whole new layer of sickening depravity to the trade.. And even if it was in the name of culture, in what world is it morally or remotely acceptable to steal a person’s pet dog before hauling it off to the slaughterhouse ?
( Sarah Brownlee )

Hell On Earth For Chickens ..
McDonald’s chickens come from farms described as hell on earth’.
Bred to grow too big, too fast, they can barely walk from the weight of their own oversized bodies.. These birds live in conditions so cramped they only have space the size of an A4 sheet of paper each.. Their legs burn from the toxic fumes of their own waste.

The stress that fish experience when they are pulled from the water into an environment in which they cannot breathe is exactly the same as a person drowning.
( Dr Culum Brown )

I like animals, all animals.
I wouldn’t hurt a cat or a dog, or a chicken or a cow, and I wouldn’t ask someone else to hurt them for me.
That’s why I’m a vegan.
( Peter Dinklage )

Without reservation I support the Australian groups fighting to save the kangaroo. The killing is a disgrace, cruel, and entirely profit motivated. The kangaroo is one of Australia’s original inhabitants, deserving both respect and compassion.
( Sir Paul McCartney )

Vivisection is a social evil because if it advances human knowledge, it does so at the expense of human character.
( George Bernard Shaw )

No Animal Is So Cruel As Man

Until we allow all living creatures their place in the sun, we can never call ourselves civilised.

The vegan considers the abolition of the slaughter-house as a reform of the first importance in the reconstruction of human society.. For as long as it remains, society has no morality.
( Donald Watson )

Members of the UK Government and their wealthy mates on horses should have progressed beyond chasing innocent foxes around the countryside and having their dogs tear the poor souls to pieces.

The only time I saw pigs were the dead piglets on display in Spanish butchers, or legs of ham in restaurants and bars. But you’re so disengaged it doesn’t shock you to see their pale soft skin on the counter. Now I think about it, it shocks me that it didn’t shock me before.
( Dr Pía Spry-Marqués )

They try and hide their cowardly actions by calling it ‘sport’ or ‘hunting’..
When in fact it’s cold-blooded murder.

People speak sometimes about the ‘bestial’ cruelty of man.
But that is terribly unjust and offensive to beasts.
No animal could ever be so cruel as a man, so artfully, so artistically cruel.
( Fyodor Dostoyevsky )

Who will be the first supermarket or store to show mercy and compassion, decency and morality, and have the guts to stop selling animal products – and put an end to enslavement, misery, fear, terror, torture, unimaginable pain, suffering, and brutal death ?

Many people are wholly unconnected to what is on their plate.
They see meat but do not see the slaughter.
( Ruth Owen )

The complete character, the true human, are those who see and hear and feel the most.. Who have the deep sympathy of understanding and compassion for all creatures on our earth.

As we talked of freedom and justice one day for all, we sat down to steaks.
I am eating misery, I thought, as I took the first bite.. And spit it out.
( Alice Walker )

All animals are here with us, none are here for us.

The Earth was made for all beings, not just human beings.
Many animals show more kindness and compassion than do many humans.

The vegan lifestyle is a compassionate way to live that supports life, supports fairness and equality, and promotes freedom.
( Robert Cheeke )

It’s very disturbing when you have a prime minister and government who have a perverted desire to not only kill wildlife animals for fun but to cheer and celebrate when a pack of frenzied dogs tear the poor souls to pieces.

Veganism is not about giving anything up or losing anything.
It is about gaining the peace within yourself that comes from embracing non-violence and refusing to participate in the exploitation of the vulnerable.
( Gary Francione )

Animals do not give their life to us.. We take their lives..
They struggle and fight to the last breath..
Just as you would if you were in their place.

When they are gone.. When every last life has been stolen..
How will we remember them ?
Extinction is forever.

The arrogant delusion of superiority and the belief we have a God-given right to decide who lives and who dies.
( Rose Winfold )

Behind every fur, behind every piece of fur trim, there is a story of life, fear, horror and suffering.

The commonly held notion that punching and kicking an animal is cruelty but shooting them in the skull and slitting their throat is not, is so utterly ridiculous that it sounds like satire.

Surely wine is vegan, it’s just grapes. It’s not. Wine has animal-derived additives from eggs, fish bladders.. And pig trypsin, which is banned in the EU but used in the US, is secreted by the pancreas and used to break down the proteins in wine and clarify the drink.. The less meat we consume overall the less we have for byproducts used in some other way. We use every little part of the animal and if we’re going to be killing them we might as well. But if the consumption of meat decreases then we’ll need to find alternatives.
( Dr Pía Spry-Marqués )

We must always remember that our world leaders and politicians are also responsible for the misery and the suffering of animals.. They have the power and the resources to end both animal and human suffering.. But they choose not to.

When I read of the possible annihilation of the elephant or the whale, or the pouring of oven cleaner or cosmetics into the eyes of live kittens, or the close confinement of pigs and calves in lightless pens, I feel myself confronted by human stupidity, which I recognise as an enemy.
The connection between stupidity and cruelty is a close one.
( Christopher Hitchens, 1949-2011 )

Several studies now confirm that pigs are more intelligent than the despicable creatures who abuse and slaughter them.

When you describe an action as being ‘humane’, it is an action you are prepared to have done to yourself.. If you are not, it’s not humane.

Once the facts have been presented, you’d have to be wilfully ignorant to continue eating animal products.
( Stephen Hawking, 1942-2018 )

We can judge the character and the hearts of people by the way they treat animals.

We share this planet with wonderful and amazing animals and creatures.
If you can’t show them kindness and compassion..
Then at least do them no harm.

To say that a being who is sentient has no interest in continuing to live is like saying that a being with eyes has no interest in continuing to see.. Death, however ‘humane’, is a harm for humans and non-humans.
( Gary Francione )

People saying that vegans are weak clearly have no idea of how much strength it takes to stand up for what you believe in.

The small number of folk who truly care must educate the arrogant many that all life is as precious as their own.

The systematic torture of sentient beings, whatever the pretext and in whatever form, cannot achieve anything more than it already has.. To show us what is the lowest point of debasement man can reach.
( Joaquin Phoenix )

The Dairy Industry.. The only place where rape victims, who cry for days over their stolen babies, are depicted as being happy.

Those who put their ‘taste’ above unimaginable pain and suffering tells us everything about them.

In one week, more farmed animals are killed than the total number of people killed in all wars throughout history.
( Melanie Joy )

Vegan is not extreme.
What’s extreme is that we say we love animals yet pay people to torture, abuse and kill them just because we like the taste of their dead bodies.. Now that is extreme.

Eating meat isn’t something humans inherently do. Isn’t it strange that in the UK we happily scoff pulled pork but not pulled dog ?.. We’re conditioned by an invisible belief system that encourages us to eat animals which is shared by all meat-eating cultures. If you think about the millions of different animals out there, we’ve only chosen a few that we class as edible. The others are seen as disgusting. Just imagine eating a rat.
( Dr Pía Spry-Marqués )

The truth has long been met with anger before acceptance.
Soon we’ll see eating animal flesh and drinking animal milk as another barbaric relic in our history.

As long as people will shed the blood of innocent creatures there can be no peace, no liberty, no harmony between people.. Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together.
( Isaac Bashevis Singer )

Saying the flesh of animals tastes good as a justification for killing them is pretty much the same argument as saying rape is okay since it feels good to the rapist.. Civilised people require more than sensory pleasure to justify behaviours.

So I started thinking to myself, jeez, I’ve always been told nothing but ‘milk does a body good’.. It’s a fundamental thing.
So from there it was like, what else are they lying about ?.. I just started realising there are all these things we’re brought up to believe that are just a total hoax, just bullshit advertising, you know ?
( Woody Harrelson )

Few people see the beauty that surrounds them and the wealth of love and warm affection in the soul of animals.

Not a single creature on our planet has been free from the exploitation and the persecution of man.

Unlike any other animal, you have a choice.
You can choose to kill and destroy, or you can choose to save and create.
I chose the latter.
( Edward Sanchez )

If you kill a dog you are a psychopath.
If you kill a pig you are normal.
If you don’t kill anything but protest at the killings you are an extremist.

In the USA alone, three times as many animals await to be slaughtered as there are people on the entire Earth.

Fox ‘Hunting’ Is Cruelty Dressed Up As Sport ..
The pompous, posturing, red-jacketed oafs and the sick cronies who follow them don’t have the dignity of the animals they are chasing.. The barbaric activities of these gangs of posh, rural thugs is unnatural and very disturbing.. It’s cruelty dressed up as sport.. They seem to have a driven, blood-thirsty need and desire to inflict fear and pain on innocent, defenceless animals.. They are, without exception, among the cruellest, most thoughtless, most evil members of our community.
Male ‘hunters’ are invariably impotent and women who ‘hunt’ climb on horses purely for the clitoral stimulation.
( Rose Winfold )

We Claim To Be Civilised

A License To Kill ..
Natural England has issued a license for someone to kill up to ten buzzards ‘to prevent serious damage to young pheasants’.. Pheasants are not a native species to the UK, and are bred solely for rich assholes to shoot for sport.. According to 2011 figures, over 50 MILLION non-native gamebirds (pheasants, red-legged partridge) are released into the countryside EVERY YEAR, so that those in the ‘game-shooting’ industry can shoot them for fun.. We also know that the buzzard is a native, protected species, still recovering (in some areas) from decades of illegal persecution.

The holocaust never ended – it switched species.
( Sean Watson )

Brought into the world by humans, so-called ‘farm’ animals spend their entire life trembling with fear, many in constant pain after being abused and tortured, before being brutally murdered.

It’s easy to understand but impossible to justify.
They just don’t consider what’s on their plate have been a living, feeling animal.
That’s a disconnect and it’s one most of us managed perfectly well until we saw the light.
( Mark McKay, 29.11.2017 )

No intelligent species would destroy their own environment.
No intelligent species would cause the extinction of other species.

No mother willingly hands over her own child’s milk at that child’s fatal expense.
( Sabrina Lee )

We act every day in a cruel, treacherous, barbaric way towards innocent animals, and we claim to be civilised.

The real struggle in being vegan doesn’t involve food.
It’s coming face-to-face with the darker side of humanity and trying to remain hopeful.
( Nick Bean )

When the spineless shits in Government allow fur ‘farms’ to operate and allow the sale of fur to continue, they are equally responsible as the worthless scum who torture and kill the animals and the ugly mugs who buy and wear the cruelty and suffering.

Being vegan is not the key to immortality.. We are all going to get sick and die.
But to know you’re living without harming.. That’s the loveliest feeling.
( Victoria Moran )

The Cruel, Shameful Treatment Of Monkeys ..
In 2014, as evidence mounted about the harmful effects of diesel exhaust on human health, scientists in an Albuquerque laboratory conducted an unusual experiment.. Ten monkeys squatted in airtight chambers, watching cartoons for entertainment as they inhaled fumes from a diesel Volkswagen Beetle.
German automakers had financed the experiment in an attempt to prove that diesel vehicles with the latest technology were cleaner than the smoky models of old.. But the American scientists conducting the test were unaware of one critical fact: The Beetle provided by Volkswagen had been rigged to produce pollution levels that were far less harmful in the lab than they were on the road.. The results were being deliberately manipulated.
The Albuquerque monkey research, which has not been previously reported, is a new dimension in a global emissions scandal that has already forced Volkswagen to plead guilty to federal fraud and conspiracy charges in the United States and to pay more than $26 billion in fines.
( Jack Ewing, 25.01.2018 )

The only people the ‘meat’ industry are able to employ to wilfully kill animals are psychopaths, perverts, cowards, and others with mental disorders and sadistic tendencies.

Eat the goodness of the garden.
Not the sickness and suppuration of the slaughterhouse.
( Mark Thomas White )

ALL animals once roamed wild and free, until humans decided to domesticate the most gentle creatures for exploitation and slaughter.

It’s been months since an animal has had to die so that I could eat a meal and I feel smug as shit about it to be honest.
( Mark Hoppus )

We kill animals simply because we have the ‘power’ to do so, and they can’t stop us.. Just how cowards and bullies behave.. Perhaps one day, flesh-eating Aliens will land on Earth, more intelligent and stronger than us, and will like the taste of human flesh.

I Cannot Justify Exploiting Another Female ..
I am a mother against dairy because as someone who identifies as female and a mother, I cannot justify exploiting another female, forcibly impregnating her, and then stealing her child, whom she carried for nine months, just as I carried my son, in order to satisfy a taste bud pleasure.. Our bodies produce milk to feed our babies and every mother, human or otherwise, should have the freedom to birth, feed and raise her child in peace.. If you wouldn’t use my breast milk for coffee or cereal, then please stop using theirs.
( Syl Morello )

The excitement they experience, these worthless lumps of shit who call themselves ‘hunters’, when they murder a defenceless animal is due to their deep feelings of inadequacy and impotence in ordinary life.

Don’t talk to me about peace and non-violence when there’s a dead animal on your dinner plate.
( Colleen Polito )

I will be an Angel when I die.. But for now, I’m just a frightened soul, being abused and in constant pain, enslaved in a land ruled by cruel, evil humans.

Sixty (60) per cent of the world’s biodiversity loss is due to ‘meat’ consumption.
( WWF report, October 2017 )

Ugly lumps of useless human nothingness infest our planet.
They call themselves ‘hunters’.

Millions Of Animals Murdered For The Fur Industry ..
More than 50 million animals a year are killed for the fur industry, including foxes, seals, mink, squirrels, rabbits, and even dogs and cats.. It’s not a by-product of the meat trade, most animals are killed just for their fur.
The fur-trim fashion is as great (if not a greater) threat to animals as fur coats.
Trim for accessories, keyrings, bobble hats and edging is in huge demand, so it’s not ‘leftover’ fur used for trim, the animals are killed specifically for it.
Just because the label says it’s faux, it doesn’t mean you should believe it.
Research by Humane Society International found real fur labelled as faux, or unlabelled, for sale on the high street in 2017.
( Sunday Mirror Magazine, 07.01.2018 )

They call it ‘hunting’.. How sad little creeps make themselves feel like big men.

Verily, there is heavenly reward for every act of kindness done to a living animal.
( Prophet Muhammad )

The blood-soaked ‘meat’ industry relies on the mutilation of baby animals, where life for these little souls is short and filled with pain, disease and fear.

Vegan, because the strong always protect the weak.

Fear Allah in your treatment of animals.
( Abu Dawood )

Masked Men Murdering Badgers ..
In Pembrokeshire, UK, on the 18th May 2010, more that 24 police officers, in what was called ‘operation cascade’, descended on a smallholding.
The land owners were given ten minutes notice.
With the police were contractors, there to prepare for the killing.
The contractors were wearing balaclavas, which they refused to remove.
This means that masked, armed men are being allowed to invade our homes.
That morning, as police left HQ for their sortie, they were told to be prepared, because they would be arresting ‘normal, law-abiding citizens’.
An eight-hour stand-off ensued.
Adrian Stallwood, an emergency room doctor, who was there, said:  “Rational people oppose this cull.. Never mind the threatening nature of the raid, can you imagine what this stand-off cost the taxpayer ?”
“As a physician, I understand vaccination as opposed to extermination.. A cull makes the problem worse.. The objective is to cull 80% of badgers in Pembrokeshire, which is 1500 to 2000 badgers, maybe more.. What happens when you cull is that the animals disperse, which spreads the disease further.. The new population – and the badger population will recover in a few years – is sicker.. If you vaccinate every year, the population becomes healthier”.

When you have no respect for one species you have no respect for any species.
( Rose Winfold )

The Real Victims ..
Animals are the real victims on this earth.
They don’t have wars, they don’t have weapons.
They don’t argue, or fight over, or impose religion.
They don’t kill other animals for amusement.
Their only crime is that they exist.

Going vegetarian can prevent, and sometimes reverse, our nation’s biggest killers, such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease, cancer, and strokes.. Muscle your way to better health.
( Michael Clarke Duncan )

The flesh on your plate isn’t a product of farming.
It’s a product of oppression, violence and murder.

Being vegan only takes three things..
A heart, a brain, and the willingness to use them both.

We Are Eating Cruelty ..
When we eat animal products, we are directly consuming high blood pressure, stress, and adrenaline.. We are eating fear, grief, and rage.. We are eating suffering, horror, and murder.. We are eating cruelty.. If you don’t like animals being hurt and killed.. Stop paying people to hurt and kill them.
Deceiving the ignorant masses that we have animal welfare and that ‘farm’ animals are treated ‘humanely’ is simply a ploy by the blood-soaked ‘meat’ industry and its wealthy shareholders to continue making money from the simple-minded, meat-eating population.

I picked her up and ran to the shelter of nearby trees, applied a tourniquet to her injured leg and called the medics.. I stayed with her constantly.. She had saved my life on so many occasions, I had to make sure that I was there for her.
( Corporal Juan Rodriquez on saving VC war dog Lucca after a roadside bomb )

Cows do think and have emotions.
I worked in the largest slaughterhouse on the planet, Iowa Beef, now Tyson Foods.
We killed 200 cattle an hour.
They would weep, crying with big tears, trembling with fear.
Cows have emotions, just like your dog or cat.
( Ex-slaughterhouse worker )

An Obese American Shooting An African Elephant ..
The excitement they experience when they murder an unarmed animal is entirely due to their deep feelings of inadequacy and impotence in ordinary life.. So they try to compensate for this sense of inferiority by shooting something much stronger and braver than they are.. I once watched a documentary about an obese American shooting an African elephant.. As the elephant sank slowly to the ground, the American announced that it was ‘the most gratifying moment of my life’.. We all felt nothing but contempt.. Since the reason to bring a trophy back is to show off to other people how ‘manly’ and ‘exciting’ you are, banning trophies would immediately remove this disgusting motive.
( John Cleese )

Animals don’t perform tricks because they want to, they do it because they’re afraid of what happens if they don’t.

Lamb Is What It Sounds Like – A Baby Or Juvenile Sheep ..
Lamb in the UK is called lamb if it’s killed and marketed in the year of its birth (or in the year following its birth if the lamb is born after 30 September).
Over 15 million sheep are slaughtered every year in the UK – around half are lambs.
Sheep have a natural lifespan of between 10-12 years.

The world is not a factory and animals are not products for our use.
( Arthur Schopenhauer )

Veganism is not a diet.
It’s a choice your heart makes.

Fishing is when you want a relaxing day, but still want to murder someone.

You call me vermin, destructive and dangerous.
Yet you humans have managed to destroy entire eco-systems, pollute the ocean, and hunted other species into extinction.
( Sally the Fox )

Some people genuinely have no idea what eating meat involves.
But ignorance can no longer be an excuse.. The horror is out there.

A Bloody Stain On Our Civilisation ..
There may only be 20,000 lions left in the whole of Africa.. Almost 2,000 rhino were poached in South Arica in 2015.. Yet it is possible for a tiny, wealthy elite to travel to Africa and kill hundreds of elephants, lions and rhinos, the world’s rarest and most iconic wild animals, legally and for fun.. Trophy hunters rob the rest of us of our shared wildlife heritage.. It is time for a practise that leaves a bloody stain on our civilisation to end.
( Will Travers, President of Born Free, April 2016 )
