I hope to make people realize how totally helpless animals are, how dependent on us, trusting as a child must that we will be kind and take care of their needs…they are an obligation put on us, a responsibility we have no right to neglect, nor to violate by cruelty.  James Herriot 1916-1995

It may be suggested by some books that it is not a sin to kill an animal, but it is written in our own hearts - more clearly than in any book - that we should take pity on animals in the same way as we do on humans. ~ Leo Tolstoy

It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society. Krishnamurti  

There is a higher court than courts of justice and that is the court of conscience. It supercedes all other courts. Mahatma Gandhi

"In fact, if one person is unkind to an animal it is considered to be cruelty, but where a lot of people are unkind to animals, especially in the name of commerce, the cruelty is condoned and, once large sums of money are at stake, will be defended to the last by otherwise intelligent people." Ruth Harrison

Using trespass as an act of civil disobedience. Civil disobedience involves intentional violation of the law to achieve a result the law-breakers believe is in the public interest. It is a form of protest intended to draw attention to a wrong or injustice which the protesters believe is sufficiently serious to morally justify violation of the law.

"For all our ideals & morality, those of us who eat meat are undeniably mass killers, even if we hire hit men to do the job, & others to carve the bodies up, & yet others to transport the chunks around in refrigerated trucks. It’s like a snuff flick. No one makes one if there are no buyers. Everyone involved is guilty." Bob Hunter, "Strictly Personal" Vancouver Sun, 1941-2005.

They Die Piece by Piece

Tuesday, April 10, 2001 - Excerpted from an article by Joby Warrick, Washington Post Staff Writer 

It takes 25 minutes to turn a live steer into steak at the modern slaughterhouse where Ramon Moreno works. For 20 years, his post was “second-legger,” a job that entails cutting hocks off carcasses as they whirl past at a rate of 309 an hour.

The cattle were supposed to be dead before they got to Moreno. But too often they weren’t. “They blink. They make noises,” he said softly. “The head moves, the eyes are wide and looking around.” Still Moreno would cut. On bad days, he says, dozens of animals reached his station clearly alive and conscious. Some would survive as far as the tail cutter, the belly ripper, the hide puller. “They die,” said Moreno, “piece by piece.”

Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals.  George Orwell

“But for the sake of some little mouthful of flesh, we deprive a soul of the sun and light, and of that proportion of life and time it had been born into the world to enjoy. And then we fancy that the voices it utters and screams forth to us are nothing else but uncertain inarticulate sounds and noises, and not the several deprecations, entreaties, and pleadings of each of them.” (Plutarch, “Of Eating of Flesh,” in Plutarch’s Morals, translated from the Greek)

As the saying goes: "There's a reason you take your children to pick apples but don't take them to a slaughterhouse."

Heartbreaking videos of animals at the slaughterhouse: This helpless calf is terrified since he knows what lies ahead. He can hear screams, and more importantly, he can smell the blood since cows have an excellent sense of smell. https://www.kinderworld.org/videos/meat-industry/calf-begging-abattoir-worker-not-to-kill/   Kinder World

Ban Live Export - Animals International Every day, right across the world, vulnerable animals are enduring dangerous journeys on trucks and on ships, just to be killed for their meat — often horrifically — at their destination. It’s a horrific, immoral, & corrupt industry. Truly unconscionable.
