In most of the PETA information it says that animals are abused and murdered before they are killed. When hearing the PETA stories it almost seems as if the only way to kill an animal is to cut it open while it is still alive so it suffers terribly.
Recently I found out that there laws and regulations in the Netherlands saying that animals must be tranquilized before they are killed. This way the animals don't feel any pain. The tranquilizing usually happens through some gas. And in the biggest slaughterhouse in the Netherlands cows are first tranquilized, and then get shot in the head. This causes an instant death.
Meat is still murder, but it isn't very smart to try and convince someone to give up meat with false arguments. If that person found out about the argument not applying in that specific country it might develop a sort of anti vegan/vegetarian feeling. So, does anyone have any information about in which country's animal slaughter is regulated this way?
And if you are a vegan/vegetarian to reduce the killing/suffering of animals: Why would you drive an extra distance to the veganstore(and kill about 10 flys with your car), and not just buy a piece of meat(suffering free, as desribed above) in the supermarket? This would mean you are responsible for the death of 1 cow, but saved the live of 10 flies. Does anyone have any useable arguments against that(no arguments like, you can walk or cycle to the veggie store).
For me the reason for not eating meat is becouse it is
ing to eat a dead animal. That is the way I felt about it ever since I was about 5 years old.
I am not trying to be anti vegan or something, just interested to know more and maybe a bit anti PETA.
