Well; some terrorist organisation with headquarters in the United States!!! Damn terrorists who would have thought of looking in Virginia?...
Yeah, and it certainly has nothing that PETA has supported people who commit crimes in the name of PETA financially or through publicity.
Also, did you not hear about PETA's holocaust/cattle juxtaposition ads? Certainly those were a form of terror - afterall, a terrorist uses fear with
the "intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons."
It’s my own personal observation which I mostly obtained from looking at what people put in their trolleys at the supermarket I work.
Ah, more credible research presented by you! How do you know that they're going to eat the pork? Maybe they're having family over and they
themselves will not actually eat it. I eat a lot of chicken, does that mean that the feathers in my bed are a sign I'm molting, or just that one of
my pillows burst again? Can you come please diagnoze me?
The other reason is that it breaks a formula I hold sacred: I believe battery chickens suffer more in life than they enjoy it.
So chickens can feel emotions now? Do you have some more "credible" and "scientific" research to back that one up?
If an animal enjoys its life more than it doesn’t (in fact some of our cows are probably better of than if they were in the wild) then I reckon
eating them is fine.
So what if chickens were happy to be mankind's dinner? You would be totalloy okay with that? You alluded to the fact you eat beef (when you said you
boycott chicken and pork products), so how do you know that cows are happy to be slaughtered for their meat?
And yes, animals today that are raised on farms are entirely incapable of survival on their own in the wild. If you were to free chickens, cows, pigs,
and other livestock, it will surly die. They lack the neccessary skills for survival in the wild.
Apparently people are meant to eat meat; equally we were not meant by nature (or some grand creator) to eat meat produced through such twisted ways.
Therefore I care at least enough to inform others, and campaign for some very simple changes.
Yes, the fact that we have canine teeth is a very good sign we were meant to eat meat. Also, a lot of very specific proteins and amino acids that are
neccessary for a healthy life can only be found through eating meats. We are also meant to eat vegetables though, which can be pointed out because we
have molars, which aid in the digestion of vegetables.
Though, what do you mean that we are not supposed to eat meat "produced through such twisted ways" because of "nature" or "some grand creator?"
You really have me at a loss of that one as well.

Even if you get sick with e-coli or salmonella, you'll probably get over it...
That's why you cook the meat thoroughly and keep the food area very sanitary. I clean my kicthen four days of the week. So far so good.
Go ahead , enjoy that juicy burger...
Will do! Thanks!

There's only one real way to kill for food etc properly - one I heard about from poachers stories and one was on a TV show about reindeer herders in
Lapland. The former was about people that take a boat out or lie by the side of the river, and basicly vector the fish in in some telepathic way (ie -
they don't use nets or lines). If you know about traditional hunting then all tribal people will explain that they have to ask spirits that govern
the animals for what they can get, I think it is telepathic in that way.
I'll use the example of a herd of sheep and a herddog. The sheep are somewhat afraid of the herddog, so they run away from it. If the herddog is on
the left of the sheep, the sheep will want to go right to get away from it. The converse is true if the herddog is on the right.
Fish are the same way. They go away from what they don't know. If you live near a river, you can try this. Go stand in the shallow water, maybe ankle
deep. If there are any minnows, you entering the water will have probabaly scared them away. Now stand there, keeping your feet stationary for a bit.
If there are minnows, they will come back and swim around your feet. Move one of your feet and they'll scatter.
Now try this with a couple of other people and make a semicircle towards the shore. You can all spook the minnows, and the majority of the ones that
were in the semicircle will go and beech themselves.
Does that mean you just used telepathy to move the fish?
The latter was similar, basicly the herders inside their minds call over one of the herd, and the reindeer walked right over and waited to be killed,
which was done instantly and cleanly. There was hardly any blood at all.
More telepathy, eh? Certainly it wasn't that they just waited for one to be off on its own, or somehow lured it over with scents or noises...
And bull fighters are able to kill the bulls instantly and cleanly, with very little blood. How? They know percisely where to strike on the animal
that will allow that to happen.
