There is one thing that unites each and every living creature on this planet. One commonality. One certainty. One fixed event.

Regardless of your species or your gender, where you live or what you do for a living. No matter what you eat or who you love. One day, you will die.

[Note: this is very much a visually-based, artistically composed video. The footage above carries great weight, so I recommend viewing rather than just reading. The main portion in the middle cannot be transcribed. I'm still providing the rest of the words here]

When the day comes, we hope that it will be peaceful, quick and painless. We hope this for ourselves, our families, our friends, loved ones, our pets, and for many of us, even the animals we eat.

Even though we’re going to kill them for food, we want to know that the animals on our plates didn’t suffer. Most of us don’t give it much thought day to day. We may assume that those doing the killing for us follow proper procedure.[tweet this]

Maybe we only buy free-range, cage-free and humanely slaughtered animals, trusting that these labels ensure acceptable conditions and painless deaths. Or maybe we don’t think about it at all.

As animal agriculture has increased to monumental proportions, birthing factory farms and mechanized, assembly-line slaughter, we’ve designed more and more efficient methods of killing.

Efficiency is king.

But as consumers become more aware of where their food comes from, and more and more undercover footage exposes outright abuse on farms, the demand has risen for more humane methods of slaughter.

We purchase our ethical meat and feel good about our choice. We’re not supporting animal suffering. Because surely by this day and age, we’ve created for our animals the nicest way to die. [tweet this]

When you purchase meat, dairy, and eggs, you have not only the right, but also the duty to know how the animals killed for you were treated. [tweet this]

Maybe you really don’t know. Perhaps you’ve been lulled into assurance by the images of family farms and rolling hills. But it’s time to know the truth. You at least owe the beings you are eating that much.

If you can’t watch the process, do you really have a right to eat the product? [tweet this]

If this isn’t good enough for your eyes, why is it good enough for your stomach?

The footage in the video above depicts what is touted as the most humane method of slaughtering pigs.

This is the gold standard.

This is how your free-range and humanely slaughtered pigs are killed.

The images you will see are not isolated incidents.

If anything, this is the “best case scenario” of animal slaughter.

This, for an animal in our food system, is the nicest way to die.


—[footage of CO2 stunning, the “most humane method” is in video above]—


It’s time to open your eyes to the truth.

There is no humane meat, humane, dairy or humane eggs.

There is no way to ethically and compassionately end the life of another. [tweet this]

If this video disturbed you, then stop supporting these atrocities. Every time you purchase animal products, you’re condemning another being to life and death ina horror movie. If this is the nicest way to die, just imagine what’s happening in the other slaughterhouses.

Maybe you didn’t know before.

But now you do.

The responsibility lies with you.

What will you do now?

    Humanely slaughtered? There is no such thing. Adults know where their meat comes from but they choose to ignore because they like eating dead, decaying animal flesh.
    This video should be shown continuously at every meat counter.

    Such a difficult video to watch. Had me in tears. Thank you for making this Emily. You are a kind and brave soul.
    We’ve featured one of your quotes from the video on our page.

    Dear Emily,

    Your videos have of course always been great. And then you keep getting even better, even more powerful. Amazing. Thank you so much for your work. This last video has been very hard to sit through, of course, but it is so very much needed. I am still crying as I am writing this. I am still all raw. But that’s how it has to be while these horrors are happening. I will try harder than ever to end this. Thank you. Love from Frid

      Thank you so much Frid! It was very challenging to make and watch time and again. Thank you for watching anyways. Much, much love!

    Very powerful. I’m a new vegan as are my kids and husband (almost but he’ll get there) and can’t believe I didn’t stop eating animal products sooner. Guilt. With all the animal cruelty/farming/slaughter/abuse videos I’ve recently seen, this one, although short had my heart pounding and hands shaking. The terror those pigs endure. It’s extremely saddening and maddening isn’t it? This is the first video I’ve shared on Facebook regarding veganism/animal ethics. People have to see this and others like it. I love your work, keep it up Emily, you’re amazing!

    • Emily Moran Barwick (BiteSizeVegan) on February 24, 2016 at 2:38 am

      Jess, SO glad to hear you’ve all gone vegan! It’s always hard to believe what we used to support! I’m so honored that you shared this too. Thank you so much for doing so and for making the change!

    It’s crazy what we humans do. What were they thinking when they were designing and manufacturing this killing equipment?? …It’s crazy.

    I was interested in becoming a vegan. After reading this plethora of information I am convinced this is what I want to do.
