Meat Eater Breaks Down After Seeing the Truth


So we’re here bearing witness with South Wales Animal Save; and behind me is a truck full of sheep And all the way down the road we have another truck and a trailer lined up This is the life that we give them, these sentient beings that feel pain, want to live just like we do. This is how we treat them. -I can’t.
-It’s bad isn’t it ? No, I’m gonna watch it, I’m gonna watch it Yeah? Yeah Did you get to the very end? Yes Well done. Oh my god. Thank you for watching. Thank you for showing. It’s okay. *exhales* I’m not eating meat. No way. Don’t look at me like that! Is it why you expected, or was it worse, or… It is what I expected but it’s not the same knowing and seeing… Yeah, it is, that’s right, you’re absolutely right. It’s different when you see it first hand. Thank you for watching. Wow. Thank you. No, it’s okay, obviously the footage is horrible, but do you think there’s a humane way to kill an animal that doesn’t want to die? No, you can’t. How do we morally justify doing these things to animals? You can’t. We can’t. Do you think it’s humane, what we do? It’s difficult isn’t it ? I think it’s a matter of perspective. Yeah, how do we morally justify doing these things to animals, do you think? Good question hey, a hard one. We’ve doing it for years.. Does that make it moral ? I mean, we’ve been killing each other for years as well, haven’t we? Yeah, but I think … I dunno, because obviously I’m a meat eater, I don’t really have much built up opinion … on animals and such Yeah, but what about dogs, is it moral to eat dogs, is that ok? No, because they’re seen as a pet. But what’s the difference? But… would you have a cow as a pet? You just close your eyes, pretend you don’t know. Yeah. That’s right. Wow …. *sighs* Thank you so much. It’s okay, you’re welcome. What I was saying to your friend is that the only reason these things happen is because we pay for them to happen, which means if we find it upsetting, we have the power to make it end, and The way that.. this is how we treat over 90 percent of the pigs in this country, in these horrible farms and Even if they raised a nice open green pastures and they they’re organic or whatever they still end up in the same slaughterhouses with the same knife across their throat and that’s just the sad reality of of what happens when we exploit animals for our own personal gain, but when you see it and as you say, you experienced it, it changes You know you can’t hide from anymore. And it was so easy for us, we can go into a supermarket and we can buy steak wraps and plastic and not think about the cow, or buy bacon and not think about the pig. When you see it you start to connect all the dots, and you start to see the product coming from the animal It’s a very powerful thing to do, so to do it, do it for yourself, and then it will change so much about you. I think it’s amazing that you’ve watched it, and I’m so grateful. You should be proud of yourself. Thank you. Thank you so much for doing this. Honestly, it’s our pleasure. We love some animals, like my mum for example, loves dogs But she doesn’t understand why I would love a pig or a cow, you know Maybe it is just enough, maybe not to go fully vegan but just reduce the meat consumption ? What you’ve got to remember by that is this– that the animals are still dying and there’s still a victim involved even if we only eat, like, bacon once a month that’s still an animal paying the price for that. I mean, how do we morally justify taking a life of an animal? You can’t really can you ? Right, it doesn’t matter if we do it every day or once a month. We still can’t morally justify it. Should we allow culture to dictate morality? Maybe not but… I don’t.. I don’t think… I don’t think… No… I’ve gotta look at it selfishly, and like I don’t.. vegetables are – and things like that aren’t really my diet. I just love meat so… -Man, but you can, you can change that like you can…
-I know I can change it but Having, like, chicken…. some beef … But I’m trying… I see where you’re coming from completely. I pushed, I pushed the concept away for ages because I used to get Domino’s like every week I loved KFC more than, more than most things you know and I started to realize that you know Because I couldn’t morally justify it.. I was living in a state of a bit of moral hypocrisy, almost? Where I said, you know I love animals I don’t wish harm on animals, but I was paying for harm be inflicted on animals. Yeah I get that. -It’s not fair
-It’s not fair You wouldn’t kill a bird with your teeth would you ? Life is a life. Yeah. Yeah, good. I’m really happy to hear that have you got have you got some cards ? Fantastic, good for you man. Please, help yourself. Yeah. Yeah, take one of these as it’s the same flyer. Yeah, I went vegan after watching this documentary, Earthlings, it was, um.. It kind of just opened my eyes to so much that I had no idea about and I realized that I preached Loving animals and I hate people that commit cruelty to animals But the same time I was guilty of paying for People to inflict cruelty on animals you know and that’s how I kind of came to the realization of veganism for me was the only way I could morally align my actions actions with my morals There’s a … there’s a 22 day vegan challenge ? We actually have it here, I mean if you want to sign up, you’re more than welcome to. It’s just gonna be it’s just a really great way of just trying it and seeing how you feeling If after 22 days you feel good for it then stick at it, man. You know. Right we’re back in just a second. Thank you … torture, maiming, and eating pigs. One of the methods of slaughter of pigs in the UK is a gas chamber where groups of pigs are herded into metal cages which are then dropped into a chamber that is filled with carbon dioxide. Once inside the chamber, the pigs scream and thrash, fighting for their lives for up to thirty seconds. So basically in Canada, they found recently as a couple years ago that there was a mass shortage of people applying to work in slaughterhouses. They couldn’t fill the spaces, surprise, surprise right. So what they did is they’ve got Syrian refugees that would come into the country and made them work in a slaughterhouse instead to fill up the gaps right how sick is that so you’ve got people escaping War torn Syria, the country that was partially bombed by Canada themself, they’re refugees fleeing war, they say hey come to Canada, live a good life, by the way you’ve got to slaughter animals every day of your life I mean, it’s just sickening, and this is the exploitation I’m referring to. The exploitation is on a mass scale It’s not just, I mean the farmers and workers. Okay fair enough We’d established that maybe not they’re bad people, but the industry officials the people are making all the big money from it They knowingly exploit humans They knowingly exploit animals they knowingly exploit children by putting these hideous labels on things making us go against our innate compassion. Buying products that have these terrible kind of marketing ploys and this. It makes us– We’ve been lied to right That’s the thing we’ve been lied to our entire lives fooled and deceived into Purchasing these products and believing that these things can be done in somewhat of a humane manner I mean these industries have one thing in mind and that’s profit and people say to me, oh, vegan propaganda And I say, go out walk down the street look at every billboard every bus stop every magazine and tell me what you see . You see these pictures glamourizing flesh, glamourizing the murder of animals. And people say that when we show the reality we’re using propaganda But we’re not, we’re not airbrushing this we’re not taking glossy photos This is the candid reality of what goes on and what we have to understand is that we have been lied to and manipulated almost Every single day when we turn our TVs on and a McDonald’s advert comes up think about Happy Meals This is what we’re marketing to children Happy Meals This is what happens to animals We cut them up mutilate them put them into a patty and call it a Happy Meal it’s sick And we have to wake up and understand that you know these industries want to profit from us What’s empowering to know is because these things only happen because we pay for them to happen that means that we have all the power to make it stop It is a simple supply and demand situation. I think what often happens is we look across the world we see for example Syria or famine or whatever it may be and we think god, these problems are huge, far bigger than we are. And for the most part they can be and we rely on our governments to make changes, which they never do and they never will but the problem is, or the good thing is with this– Supply and demand. We pay for it to happen it happens, which means as soon as we stop paying for it to happen It stops happening. Veganism is one of the few times as individuals we have the power to create massive change We’re not relying on government officials or MPs or even CEOs and massive companies We’re relying on each other, the consumers to make that difference and that’s an empowering thought, to know that every choice We make as an individual has a profound effect on the lives of others. Yeah. Please.

  1. I'm not vegan or vegetarian, nor will I try to become fully vegetarian, not because I won't be able too, but because it's too difficult. I like eating some fishes, chicken and some meats, but I do avoid most.

    Ever since I saw cowspiracy, it made me think so much and I'm definitely eating less meat than I used too. I'd rather go for plant based alternatives, but it's hard to do that in a family when we often eat some kind of meat, fish or chicken. I try my very best to help the enviorment as much as possible. I also, just don't like milk, so I drink plant based milk.

    Thank you also, for inspiring people. We need more people like you. 🙂

    Can anyone recommend me any good vegetarian meals, and a substitue for butter?

  2. I think noone should be able to argue, that it would be a bad law to put a warning on meat, just as we put warnings on cigarettes… These happy cows on the milk do not represent anything real, it is in fact a lie intentionally manipulating the customer. Lets have some tidbits like "in egg industry, all male chicks are minced alive" and add a nice picture. Why shouldnt this be on the egg cover? Really, is there any reason why not? you can refute veganism on basis of a different moral philosophy… but you cannot argue against truth… right?

  3. Animal that go to slaughter suffer so appaling . Prior to that the conditions that they are forced to live in and treated by nasty cruel workers is barbaric. Ed is so correct about the facts

  4. I love you ED!!!! Thank you for your tireless actions, watching your videos and speaking out along with you makes me happy! You are a true beautiful human

  5. Just hearing the sounds of the pig whaling was enough to make me want to consider transitioning into a vegan diet. the thought of paying people to do that to something that is clearly in pain just…

  6. For centuries our ancestors have lived on meat. If carnivores were not present then the herbivores would have eaten all the plants. A balance has to be maintained. Wild animals kill humans for food or protection. We humans consume the herbivores. Unprecedented killing shouldn't be there. But complete vegan is not an option. Sorry I don't disrespect your thinking but am only typing what I think is right. The food chain has existed for centuries and will continue existing.

  7. Watch innocent ni mental illness nothing under high voltage shock agony lobotomy shrunk shock burned comas 30x concussions 2nd forced bullshited tortured keft in headless pain not humanly possible after only 2 years existence ouchhh byrn 8n hell bastard psychiatrists burnn

  8. What a beautiful woman! The fact that she is so open hearted and minded to recognize what’s wrong with the “normal” treatment of animals in the industry…is simply amazing.

  9. For the sake of animals, the planet we live on and my health, is the reason I will keep trying to go completely vegan. but man, some of you vegans are, indeed, extremely annoying with your tactics in trying to convert other meat eaters to veganism to the point where it can throw us off. Yes I can agree it's for the better, however don't try and act above everyone else simply because you are a vegan. lets be real… ya'll don't give a crap about our health, so please leave that part out of your argument. genuinely try to influence us, not shame us. Allow us to come to terms with the harm we are contributing to ourselves. I for instance already have. And it is not due to you vegan activist. Some people like myself grew up in a meat eating family and was introduced to it from an early age. it's extremely difficult, yet I try and will continue to try to stay meat free.

  10. As a kid I had an abusive vegan friend who got people online to bully me for eating meat, she was violent sometimes too. It turned me off veganism for a long time, but as an adult I know there’s no way around the truth of factory farming. It just isnt right. If you can’t give up meat yet, at least eat a lot less. There’s no health reason to eat meat every day.

  11. I remember the exact day i realized how horrible eating meat was…that day i swore i’d never eat meat again. i was about 14. horrific.

  12. Ed, please keep doing what you are doing. You are truly amazing!! Thank you thank you thank you !! PS : please come to Ireland!!

  13. Please tell me there is going to be a thing called SaveTheEarthism because we all are going to die but eh, sucks to be everything.

  14. like normally day-to-day people don't think about it like what goes into what they're eating say like you're eating McDonald's so you don't think about what the animal goes through and that's really really sad I've been vegan for like 4 years of my life and it's been like the best decision ever

  15. I'm 13 years old and I am trying to go vegan because what they do is horrible, but it is hard because my family isn't vegan. I am so inspired by Ed, and I am so happy that I found this channel.

  16. I respect Ed so much for saying what so many people choose to ignore: your dollar is so important. The government isn’t gonna do anything, when have they ever? Be the change you want to see.

  17. Honestly I think killing them when they are about to die is ok but honestly it's just the circle of life it's like telling other animals not to eat a animal it's in their nature like ours I'm not saying killing animals when they're healthy is right I'm just saying it's the circle of life and killing animals that are about to die is ok and eating a little meat is ok it's healthy it gives us fats we need in our body.

  18. Killing animals and eating them is just the natural selection the laws of the strongest, a shark will have no shame to eat me in his environment.

    By cons I am to find a way to kill animals more dignified and less painful yes!

    Tuer des animaux et les manger c'es juste la séléction naturelle la lois du plus fort , un requin n'aura aucune vergogne à me manger dans son environnement.

    Par contre je suis pour trouver une façon de tuer les animaux de façon plus digne et moins douloureuse oui !

  19. Yet, You just sit there and watch people get beat up as people, and say thats not my problem. Well Im going to go get me a pork chop, and mash potatoes.

  20. Yeah what about plants. If you start makeing everyone eat plants, Fruits, Or vegies, your going to hear Screaming trees. Cause We will have to cut them down to make space.

  21. El problema es que dotais a los animales de sentimientos y olvidais que somos omniboros, eso significa que comemos carne y eso es asi, evulocionamos gracias a comer carne, un tigre tambien es un asesino??
    Yo entiendo que el sacrificio es desagradable pero somos carnivoros

  22. It just makes every steak for me more tasty …we will kill animals and eat them fuck you and your fucking vegans member

  23. When I was 11 years old I wanted to know how animals were killed for food. I watched the entire earthlings video and went vegetarian that day and I have been for 4 years now, I will become vegan once I am in an environment to do so. I want to thank you sm for what u are doing, in my eyes u are one of the world’s greatest gifts.

  24. Meat eaters want to be convinced Veganism is the answer about as much as Vegans want to be convinced meat-eating is the answer. People are free to choose and nobody wants to be force-fed anything, regardless of conviction levels on either side.

  25. I know this might now be true but what could 1 person do if they stopped eating meat it’s not like he or she could make a difference

  26. I have been lead to the conclusion some humans don’t care as long as their tastebuds are satisfied. Those people will be forever selfish and refuse to wake up and realize the things they love to eat have to suffer by the hands of evil. Stop being such fat asses and stop eating meat for your own selfishness. “But it’s good” that just proves how selfish people are.

  27. If the animals were treated completely humanely then killed painlessly I think it could be largely justified, but we know this isnt the case

  28. Vegans: Don’t eat animals. They have feelings, is bad for your health and they are suffering.
    Carnivorous species: “I’m I a joke to you?”
    Plants that give us oxygen, being the principals to give us and all the animals in the planet life’s : “ i’m I A jOkE tO yOu!?”

  29. If people didn't eat meat in the first place then there would be no point in re-producing animals, so those animals we try to protect in the video, would of never existed in the first place.

  30. DIFFÉRENTS BETWEEN ANIMALS AND US WHO EAT MEAT. THEY DON'T PLAY WITH IT THEY DON'T WEAR FUR OR TORTURE IT AND THEY DON'T HAVE A CHOICE OR CONSCIENCE ABOUT IT. DAMN DUMBS CARNIVORES LOGIC WE HEAR EVERY TIME THINKING THEY ARE SMART

  31. Are you clowns going to turn lions and hyenas in the wild also into vegans to make sure no animal has to die and suffer?

  32. I know how fucking animal dies you idiots, I have killed many of them by my own hands and let me tell you they tatse very delicious.
    The people in the video live under a fucking rock when they are shown lil gore they are like OMGGGGG. Weaklings disgust me.

  33. I've watched "Earthlings" the hardest to watch so far (Joaquin Phoenix as a movie reader) and I've become vegan instantly…. It was yesterday
