I hear what you are saying about slaughterhouses. One of my early jobs in life was working at a Turkey kill plant for as long as I could stand the
chemicals. Orientation requires a tour of the entire plant....kill room included. I don't care for how that process happens and goodness knows anyone
adding cruelty to an already bad process by the sheer nature of it, needs to be shown the door with a boot to go with it.
How does pointing out the bad side of the production food industry somehow lessen the horror of watching some little psycho in the making feed the
family pet to a snake? I just don't see the connection from point A to point B in that whole line of thinking.

Simple and mainly because of the point you seemed to try to gloss over. I am not even talking about the kill floor. I am talking about the sick things
that happen to the animals during their "lives" in these places. Constant physical abuse and torture. Often death comes long before the kill floor
from sheer abuse. Do you have any idea how badly cows utters are torn up just to make sure you get milk? Do you think they enjoy that?
What is the comparison? Easy.What is more cruel? One animal eating another or people walking around kicking animals to death? Keeping them in cages
too small for their bodies? Filling them with chemicals that cause them to suffer so that they overproduce for us? Is the snake eating the cat really
more cruel than all that crap?
Is it right to sit there eating a burger, knowing that DOMESTICATED animals are being purposely tortured to support that all while getting upset over
one animal eating another animal it is naturally inclined to eat?
The outrage seems severely misplaced. If this is about cruelty to animals, then there is tons of cruelty that can be stopped by destroying the meat
industry. Instead, you are using all that energy up on a video of some person letting one animal eat another animal.
Seem a little skewed at all?
