BE A PART OF THE PETA2 MOVEMENT

"He Frequently Had to Cut the Legs Off Fully Conscious Cows"

I once read an article where Ramon Moreno, a slaughterhouse worker, explained that for as long as seven minutes after their throats have been slit, many cows [on the slaughter line] are still alive and fully conscious.

His job was to cut the legs off the animals, and he frequently had to cut the legs off fully conscious cows. He told the Washington Post, “They blink. They make noises. … The head moves, the eyes are wide and looking around.

I think this piece of artwork, sent in by a Street Teamer, speaks for itself.


“They really do bleed cows out that way, but people still don’t seem to be too traumatized by it, so I decided to step it up a notch and see how people would react to a woman suffering the same death.” The artist, Sam says, “Three people in my class said that it bothered them so much that they would second guess eating meat that day. Not a huge accomplishment, but it’s something anyway.”

That is a huge accomplishment! Every person counts and this is a perfect example of a how your school projects can help save animals. Check out peta2’s guide to class projects here, and let us know if you need help getting started! And make sure you send us any of your animal rights artwork so we can add it to our DeviantArt page!

Stay loud!

    I think that any one that sees this and doesn’t think anything of it is uterly discusing and has no heart! This aplies to the slaughter houses too. How could a man, as little as we are in this uncivilized world, go in there, slit a cows throwt and walk away with that on his hands and not feel a thing from it. Its decusting and sick. A man so little would kill a tree and an even littler man would kill a animal. This aplies to the fur stuff too. We have a little thing called faux now and we don’t want dead animal fur! How could a person skin an animal while it is still alive then trow it in to a ben with other dead cacuses? and not feel a thing about it! How could you stand in front of thousands of dead skelletons and think ‘some one may be warm from the animals I kiiled and i dont think or feel a thing about it. I may only be 12 years old but i know that this is wrong on so many leavels that it is unjustice and crule!

    Born and bred in Britain. I've always lived with animals and loved finding out new information/ caring about them. I currently do eat meat although I am not a huge lover and I do intend on going vegetarian when I'm older. I've always wanted to support charities and I am the head fund raiser at my school. I am looking forward to supporting Peta and becoming a member of their Street Team!
