    *** Link deleted *** This almost turned me vegitarean, it's so awful (and I'm practically a carnivore). I'm wondering if PETA set this up, but I really don't think even they would go to this much trouble to do this. I just hope all pig farms aren't like this. :eek: :crying: :bawl: :( [​IMG]

    Im not going click on this because I can tell by the things you compared it to that I will be grossed out by it.

    Can I ask you a few questions?

    Is that something thats suitable for everyone to see?
    Will people be disturbed by it?

    Do you think you could have described what you saw without posting this?

    I have a feeling this shouldnt have been posted here.

    Peace

    Number one, PETA 10 times of 10 turns political, so don't even bother. Number two, I'm not going to download the vid, not something I care to see. Number three, if it is that horrible, what the HELL are you thinking posting it here? This isn't HC, use some common sense.

    Alright, it's not that bad, but it shows how pigs get abused while they're slaughtered. It left me speechless. :(

    It shows piggies being mistreated, and shizz. If moderators don't think a pig getting it's throat slit is suitable for all ages, I suggest you close the thread.

    Its not like you see gutts or anything. Its just realy sad. Ive been to pig farms before and know other people who have raised pig and hogs. They raise them in large pins with access to shelter and open range. As far as I know, this type of farm like in this video, only happens in the east coast states. This is wrong.

    I'll leave it up to them to decide whether it's suitable, and they can close it.

    OK, I watched it. I have never seen any of the PETA stuff, so I thought maybe I should inform myself where my bacon/sausage/pork chops come from.

    That video ticked me off. I hope I never see those worthless punks who seemed to get their kicks abusing animals. Man, I am upset right now. No more pork for me, ever.

    In all honesty, thank you for the link Ox, it opened my eyes.

    Is it something that should be left up?

    If not, could you just describe it. Im not watching it but I would like to know.

    Peace

    My friend described it to me...it sounds like a bunch of sadists torturing pigs until they die (sawing heads off while they are alive etc).

    What I want to know is what does this have to do with normal farms? It didn't sound like one, nor did it apparently claim to be footage of one.

    Don't think I will be watching it.

    Nick..........It is not gross as far as graphic violence goes. They do show a pig with a slit throat bleeding on the ground. They show another guy slitting a pigs throat and watching it bleed. The same guy starts skinning the pig a few minutes later, which is gross, but there are not blood and guts flying around the screen. The video is shown from several feet away, so it isn't like a blood and guts video.

    Jared.....there is no video of pigs getting their heads sawed off. Whoever told you that was trying to scare you.

    What is disturbing to me is the brutality of these morons. One guy throws a cinder block on a pigs head twice. They are shown ruthlessly beating lame pigs with HUGE pipe wrenches, and metal poles.

    I would not call this video "gross". I would call it disturbing, and shocking. It evoked this rage inside of me as I watched these grown men laughing while they beat disabled/lame pigs in the head until they died. I am very mad, and also very upset/sad that animals are treated this way. Up until today, I ate them.

    Seriously, I am thinking of giving up meat. I don't know if I can eat any more meat knowing what I do now.

    Don't get me started on the puppy mill video. I nearly cried as I viewed that one....seriously, and I am a grown man.

    I know what you mean, MJ. I'm just worried that i'm going to have nightmares from this, like getting my throat slit and then having a cinderblock thrown on my head. :eek: :( :bawl: :help:
