Mercy For Animals presents Farm to Fridge. Narrated by Oscar-nominated James Cromwell, this powerful film takes viewers on an eye-opening exploration behind the closed doors of the nation's largest industrial farms, hatcheries, and slaughter plants -- revealing the often-unseen journey that animals make from Farm to Fridge.
98% of the world's animals are slaughtered for food (meat, dairy and eggs). This accounts to more than 65 billion land animals (every year) according to United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. Estimated 100 million to 1 trillion aquatic marine animals are taken from the oceans each year. According to Captain Paul Watson, 90 percent of the fishes are already wiped out.
We get a lot of comments justifying this practise people saying "I love bacon" or "gotta have my cheese", "good thing I slaughter my own animals", or something like "what about humane raised meat?". This is all a scam people. What we are telling ourselves is that it is alright to continue exploiting and killing innocent animals for a few moments of pleasure. Don't forget that our fellow human beings have to slaughter thousands of innocent animals everyday. Slaughterhouses have the highest injury and death rates of any industry in the US (and probably in other western countries as well).
There is no such thing a happy death, or humane slaughter or organically raised meat. All animals no matter how they are slaughtered endure the same brutal death. They are not happy skipping to the slaughterhouse wanting to get their throats slit. They are extremely terrified beings. They don't want to get off the slaughter trucks, they know what awaits them. They are not stupid! They know death approaches them. And it is happening because customers like you want to buy what comes out of their bodies. But enough already, we are not cavemen or cavewomen anymore, stop acting like Neanderthals! This is 2013. Give it up. It is not cute, or funny that animals are being abused and killed! It is not our right to be doing this to them.
If we care about peace, love and caring we must stop all forms of abuse. As Howard Lyman, 4th generation ex-cattleman and author of the book "Mad Cowboy" said in the film 'Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home', "We are here in my opinion as Homo sapiens on the planet to learn one thing. And that one thing is unconditional love. Not unconditional love just for humans, not unconditional love just for the environment. But unconditional love for our entire community on this planet."
No matter how the foods are being produced or where you are getting your meat, milk, cheese, yogurt or eggs from, these animals suffer and die needless painful deaths.
