“If slaughterhouses had glass walls, we’d all be vegetarians.”

The Beatle and decades-long vegetarian, Paul McCartney, has been speaking out for animal rights for many years.

The quote is short but speaks volumes. People don’t want to know the truth.

Most people, even meat eaters, love animals. Aside from fishers and hunters, it will be hard for you to find someone that willingly hurts or kills animals. And even if you ask the biggest meat eater you know whether or not he or she likes animal suffering, they will likely say no.

The disconnect between people and meat is simply astonishing. Urbanization has taken people from the farms and into cities where they have no connection to animals.

Slaughterhouses are kept at a distance and don’t try to attract visitors. While some allow tours, photography and video are generally prohibited.
