As a vegan of a couple years, I've built up a lot of friendships with other vegans. I don't know any who are "emaciated." I could just as easily generalize and say that all the meat eaters I know are obese.

lostinkorea: If it's so damn more healthier why is it most every vegan I've seen looks like a starving Ethiopian ?

Eating a bacon double cheeseburger will not kill you, pull the stick out of your ass and live a little instead of torturing yourself.

You know you want those bacon bits on your salad, indulge once in awhile.

I don't know what vegans and vegetarians you know. I have seen some skinny and some big ones (well over 200lbs). I am not super skinny either. I'm in my healthy weight range. Also, it's not torture to not eat meat. My life doesn't revolve around food. Also, I used to eat meat for about the first 20 or so years of my life. I really don't miss it at all. I am much healthier now since not eating meat and most dairy. To each its own though...

And I just checked my a$$ and fortunately, I didn't find a stick but thanks for looking out.

Quick! Someone put those poor, poor piggies out of their mysery!

Pork chops anyone?

Don't eat meat. It's not really hard and much healthier.

I lived out near the country, most of my life. Never seen cows, pigs, sheep, goats or any other place that treats animals like this. There is plenty of land out here, cows graze freely, pigs walk around outdoors, even the chickens get out for fresh air.

So it saddens me to see animals treated like this, because it doesn't have to be that way, kindness and proper care doesn't cost any more.

"YOU'RE going to die anyway so does the same logic apply?"

No, because I'm at the top of the food chain, I have the weapons, I'm the threat. Livestock exists to feed me. As long as nobody is poisoning my beef or creating other inedible scenarios, I don't care how they treat the cow.

"Animals are food and food gets eaten. Who gives a drat how they're treated if they're going to die anyway?"

YOU'RE going to die anyway so does the same logic apply? Karma's a bitch. There's no reason to be cruel to an animal to feed our already bulging bellies.

@faaaaq - Not bothered how much it costs. I can afford it. Happy to take the moral highground by paying it too.

I'm not going to rise to your troll post though.

i always get a kick out of the "cost a little more, but its worth it" folks. no, it costs a LOT more. most people cant afford to live on "oganic," "free range," "blahblahblahhorsepoo" products. seriously, who cares how they are treated? they are FOOD. they are going to be MURDERED so we can EAT THEM. that is their sole reason to exist. why dont you put your angst to good use and use it to better the human race, not bitch about some pigs/cows/chickens/whatever getting mistreated.

Yep, non-nice individuals work everywhere. My cousins worked on a pig farm, it was no where that cramped of conditions, and they weren't pricks, so they were treated decent. The issue is with management not punishing their workers for this crap.

Nothing new, don't buy meat from massive corporate farms! Shop at small and local farms, do a search... they are around.

I get my chicken, beef and eggs from local, organic fed, free roaming farms. Costs a little more, but worth it.

OOPS! Missed the next paragraph.

"Sparkman clarified in a follow-up email: "A company that we own has purchased hogs from the farm. We will not purchase from this farm until we've had a chance to investigate.""

"Tyson Foods spokesman Worth Sparkman emailed a statement to HuffPost, saying the company was "appalled" by the video and denying any connection between the Wyoming farm and the pork processed by Tyson. "Tyson Foods does not buy any of the hogs raised on this farm for our pork processing plants. We do have a small, but separate hog buying business that buys aged sows; however, these animals are subsequently sold to other companies and are not used in Tyson’s pork processing business," the statement said."

Clearly these are people who hate animals, and should be reported for their abuses. I wonder if Tyson will respond to this.

There are thousands of people in the hog business. I'm sure you can find cruel people in any industry. Health care, teachers, dog owners, dolphin trainers, teachers, day-care, and McDonalds managers .... should we close those industries also because of one or two bad people.

I agree completely with Buiadh. I stopped eating meat almost ten years ago because I'm a huge animal lover (no I'm not part of PETA, they can go suck it.)
If I ever were to eat meat again, I would definitely strive to at least buy free range, kosher meat.
I couldn't even watch this video, stuff like this makes me so sad. 'Ethical omnivorism' it's called.

Funny, I was watching Animal Cops the other day, and the cops were going great lengths to save and rehome a chicken that was neglected in someone's house. Meanwhile at factory farms..

Ok. Lasted 1:46. I can't watch this.

I try to buy meat from chosen suppliers that're inspected and allow their animals to roam. I'm happy to pay extra. Obviously you can never know everything that happens from farm to slaughterhouse, but this is absolutely vile.

Link: Animal Cruelty At Tyson Foods Supplier [Rate Link] - Guess we're not supposed to care because they taste good. Bet they taste better when they're treated humanely. Graphic.
