"An image is worth a thousand words." The slaughtering of an animal, a barbaric and brutal act no matter how humanely is carried out, is an eye-opening experience that can help people make mindful choices surrounding their diet. However, the article above helps us wonder, why didn’t all the witnesses make the same choice to stop eating meat as the assistant director?
