Protection 4 Animals Vegetarian
Protection 4 Animals Vegetarian are for people that really care about Animals and its this compassion for animals is one of the main reasons why people become Vegetarians.
In the UK alone, over two million land Animals are Slaughtered Daily and almost 600,000 tonnes of fish are KILLED each year, just so that people can eat their flesh or wear their skins.
Appalling Cruelty To Chickens, Turkey’s, Pigs, Pigglets, Cattle, Cows, Calfs, Fish and Dolphins.
Sir Paul McCartney Talks About “If Slaughter Houses Had Glass Walls We Would All Be – Vegetarian”
Paul McCartney narrates and describes the appauling cruelty carried out on Animals on Farms and in Slaughter Houses. These are the Animals we get our meat from and you will find in any Supermarket, Fast Food Outlet or Farm Shop.
It is widely thought by the majority of people that they are happy to eat meat but don’t actually want to see the animal they are going to eat actually being killed.
When you sit down for your meal which includes meat or fish you don’t begin to think, I wonder how this animal was killed. If we did though, we would probably rightly assume, it was killed humanly. So we are all clear, when we say humanly, we mean killed by a human in the most painless way possible. Which should mean in these times, by adhering to working within the stricktists Guidlines that must be in place including clear rules, regulations on Animal Welfare, the technology, facilities and equipment available, be instant and painless.
The Unthinkable Cruelty is Happening To Animals
But let’s say you knew in order to eat what was in front of you an Animal whether it was a Chicken, Turkey, Pig, Cattle, Cow, Fish or Dolphin had been Terribly Beaten, Horrendously Abused, Unbelievable Pain Inflicted, Housed and Transported in Appalling Conditions, Intolerable Acts of Brutality and if all that was not enough to be Tortured and left for Dead at the point of Slaughter (Being Killed in a Slaughter House).
On farms Animals Suffer the most terrible conditions from birth in which they live, are treated and handled. In the Slaughter House Animals prior to Killing are tortured, abused and handled in the most cruel ways imaginable. At the time of Killing, Animals are not Killed Properly and are left for dead, in other words where the Animal should be Dead it is not. It is left with the most unthinkable, appalling and sickening injuries. These same Animals with Heads hanging off, Guts hanging out they are still Alive in Severley Wounded Writhing in Agony. Animals on Hooks that should be stunned are still freely moving around as their throats are cut and left screaming as they Bleed to Death.
Society Turning a Blind Eye To Animal Cruelty!
Why the people that carry out these acts are not behind bars. Why these Farms are not shut down and farmers prosecuted and Abbatoirs closed the Agriculture Departments, Police, Vets and other Workers are turning a blind eye because many people don’t care, don’t want to know or just don’t know.
If you are one of those people, you have now been given a small insight into what really happens to Animals. This Article began with the words glass walls, well if all farms and slaughter houses had glass walls two things would happen. The first, Animals would not be treated in such unthinkable ways. The second, we would be, we would all be Vegaterians.
But these places don’t have glass walls and this is your opportunity to see past these walls and face up to what is going on.

WARNING: The Following Video Shows Extreme Cruelty To Animals
70% of pigs reared in the UK are farmed intensively.
- These intelligent and inquisitive animals are forced to live entirely indoors, in over-crowded sheds that do not allow them to express natural behaviours such as foraging and nest-building.
Intensively-reared sows give birth and raise their young in farrowing crates. These metal crates are so small that sows cannot turn around or suckle their piglets.
Birds factory farmed today grow three times as fast as they did 50 years ago.
- Broiler chickens have been selectively bred and reared for their meat. The majority live in large, crowded, windowless sheds with tens of thousands of other birds.
Most sheep are not farmed intensively, but they still suffer.
- Diseases such as lameness, mastitis, Sheep Scab, pneumonia and hypothermia are common.
- Sheep may be transported considerable distances to slaughter; some journeys last 24 hours or more.
Over 2.7 million cattle were slaughtered in the UK in 2010.
- Calves have to endure castration, disbudding and dehorning.
- Increasing numbers of beef cattle are housed in pens on concrete or slats without bedding.
Fish do feel pain.
- Almost half of the fish we consume today are reared intensively on fish farms, where they suffer increased stress and disease.
- When wild fish are caught and hauled to the surface, decompression can cause their eyes to pop out and their stomachs to be pushed out through their mouths.
Can slaughter ever be humane?
- Most land animals killed for food in the UK are stunned before bleeding to death. We have some of the most stringent regulations in the world, but still many animals die in fear and pain. For many vegetarians, no form of slaughter can ever be considered humane
Millions of people around the world live without meat or fish and they probably each have their own reasons for doing so.
However, most vegetarians would agree that:
It’s better for animals. Around two million land animals are slaughtered every day in the UK alone, just so that people can eat their flesh.
It’s more sustainable. Growing grains and pulses to feed to animals is much less efficient than eating them ourselves. The livestock industry uses huge amounts of land, water and fossil fuels, while producing 18% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions and all sorts of other pollution.
It’s a healthy option. A balanced vegetarian diet is one of the healthiest diets around.
Many religions and faiths recommend vegetarianism and some people turn away from eating animal flesh because of broader ethical issues. A vegetarian diet can also be one of the cheapest ways to eat well.
Whatever your reasons, going – and staying – vegetarian is a positive life choice.

Vegetarianism encompasses the practice of following plant-based diets (fruits, vegetables, etc.), with or without the inclusion of dairy products or eggs, and with the exclusion of meat (red meat, poultry, and seafood). Abstention from by-products of animal slaughter, such as animal-derived rennet and gelatin, may also be practiced.
Vegetarianism can be adopted for different reasons. Many object to eating meat out of respect for sentient life. Such ethical motivations have been codified under various religious beliefs, along with the concept of animal rights. Other motivations for vegetarianism include health, political, environmental, cultural, aesthetic or economic. There are varieties of the diet as well: an ovo-vegetarian diet includes eggs but not dairy products, a lacto-vegetarian diet includes dairy products but not eggs, and an ovo-lacto vegetarian diet includes both eggs and dairy products. A vegan diet excludes all animal products, including eggs, dairy, and honey.
Various packaged or processed foods, including cake, cookies, chocolate, and marshmallows, often contain unfamiliar animal ingredients, and may be a special concern for vegetarians due to the likelihood of such additions. Vegetarians vary in their feelings regarding these ingredients, however. For example, while some vegetarians may be unaware of animal-derived rennet’s role in the usual production of cheese and may therefore unknowingly consume the product, other vegetarians may not be bothered by its consumption. The results of a 2009 International survey suggest the standard definition of vegetarianism is different in different nations. Vegetarians in some nations consume more animal products than those in others. Often, products are scrutinized by vegetarians for animal-derived ingredients prior to purchase or consumption.
Semi-vegetarian diets consist largely of vegetarian foods, but may include fish or poultry, or sometimes other meats on an infrequent basis. Those with diets containing fish or poultry may define “meat” only as mammalian flesh and may identify with vegetarianism. A pescetarian diet, for example, includes “fish but no meat”. The common use association between such diets and vegetarianism has led vegetarian groups such as the Vegetarian Society to state that diets containing these ingredients are not vegetarian, due to fish and birds being animals.
