So some of those videos don't show any cruelty? We're not treating them as prey, to me, it seems like torture. Last I checked, a lion didn't torture a buffalo before it ate it. Sure there is some suffering, but not as much as slaughterhouses. Some of those animals were whining and crying. They aren't people, but their crying sounds the same as ours. Even though we can't tell if they mind or not, it's pretty obvious to see their pain.

The majority of people eat and will always eat meat. But is there a reason why they must suffer? Does it taste better when a pig or cow is whipped? Are there more nutrients if they cried or tried to run away? Would it be less or more satisfying knowing that the animal was shot so it wouldn't suffer?

Yes people need meat, but this isn't the way to do it. In my opinion anyway...

So you repeat my own point to me? We don't know how an animal feels even if we whip them. Just because we, as humans, see it as horrible doesn't mean an animal feels the same way.

A pig likes to eat and roll around its own feces. I don't. Should we prevent pigs from eating their own feces because we don't? No! We don't know how an animal feels when we put it through a slaughterhouse. So why assume anything?

A lion mangles its prey and even cripples it in order to capture and kill its prey look at the planet earth killing of the elephant by ganging up on it and literally clawing at it until it couldn't walk anymore. Whats the difference between us whipping some cows forward into a slaughterhouse? Bears will beat the living hell out of their prey before actually killing it. Whats your point? At least they ate their prey once they are done.

A pig whines for multiple reasons same thing with other animals and you don't know if that's a cry of ecstasy or terrible pain or something completely different. They may run because they are excited. You never know. Its not obvious because no one here has been a cow or feel what a cow feels so there is no way of telling why an animal does what it does besides the fact that it wants to survive.

So yes it's your opinion that they feel pain. And that opinion fuels your choice to follow them. I can respect that. But it is still based on assumption which makes it in no way factual until a person can literally be a cow through a slaughterhouse.
