No you don’t kill them yourself, you pay other people to do it for you. You know who those people are? Usually migrant workers, who are exploited and often suffer from psychological trauma.
“No officer, I didn’t kill this man. I just paid a hitman to do it.”
Really? Cows aren’t tortured? That’s news to me, I must have imagined these videos then:

“Inadequate stunning occurred in 12.5% (16.7% of bulls, compared with 6.5% other cattle).
Bulls displayed symptoms rated the highest level for inferior stun quality three times more frequently than other cattle. Despite
being shot accurately, 13.6% bulls were inadequately stunned compared with 3.8% other cattle. Twelve percent of cattle were reshot,
and 8% were inaccurately shot. Calves were shot inaccurately more frequently (14%) than other cattle. ”
Let’s do the math on that. Say there’s 89.9 million cows in the US right now. Even if we take the most generous estimate and use the 8% statistic, that’s 7,192,000 cows that are improperly stunned before being killed. If we use the more realistic 12.5%, then 11,237,500 cows are slaughtered when they’re still conscious.
So do me a favor and shut the entire fuck, and reevaluate the dreamworld you live in. Do you think the animals you eat all live on a cloud and gently float down to sleep in your plate? No, they live brutally short, miserable lives that end in blood and pain, because your ignorant ass can’t resist getting a cheeseburger.
Luckily, there’s hope! Not only is being vegan healthier, but there’s tons of delicious food that you can eat without having to contribute to all that horrendous bullshit.
