Animals as Food
Comments by Kathy - 20 Oct 2010

I truly appreciate your photos of the horrific abuse of dogs for their fur and meat. However, I found that I was annoyed by your narrative additions.

I can not, for the life of me, understand your correlation between the Korean dog market and us North Americans eating other critters. I can accept that it might be my belief that pets are not for eating, but that livestock is.

I am truly upset and horrified with all the pictures I have seen on the computer in terms how cows, pigs, chickens and turkeys are slaughtered. It absolutely appalls me, and I feel shame for my ignorance of the topic. But I found it rather irritating that your commentaries on the dog abuse photos made you compare that abuse to the slaughter of domesticated animals.

I am a Christian, and I believe what the Bible says, that domesticated animals were created to sustain humans. I do not agree with the absurd practices of how these critters are raised and harvested. I can not believe that the Government endorses this kind of abuse. I think humans should be allowed to eat meat, as long as the critters are raised and slaughtered humanely.

Your comments during the slide show demonstrated to me your constricted view on the topic. How can we humans survived in a healthy manner without meat? Can we be healthy with a total vegetarian diet?. Instead of being so opinionated, your statements should allow people to reconsider what they consider normal, in terms of eating meat. Provoking thought is the first step towards change.

Thanks for reading
