    good point. did you watch the video? there is just something wrong to me, and i'm not pushing this on anyone else at all, with raising commercial animals and walking them over to the kill area, and slaughtering them.

    i feel like this actually about beef and chicken and mutton too, but i only chose pork for this thread. i eventually hope to only eat venison or other wild game, but i am still weak and spoiled, and not quite ready to give up my commercial chicken from costco.

    how about this? eat pork if you hunt and kill it in the wild. i can see that as more humane.

    thanks for the input.

    I didn't watch the video- I don't need convincing that commercial farming (of any food animal, not just pigs) is inhumane. I don't see a problem with humane, small-scale farming, though. We sometimes get pork from a local farm where my daughter went to summer camp last year, where I happen to know the pigs are treated very well and killed as close to painlessly as possible.

    I don't hunt and I don't plan on taking it up. I don't see that as more humane than responsible farming.

    yes, besides ethical hunting, i think local meat is the only way to go if you're gonna eat meat too.

    Well, head on down to the funeral home and see what they've got that's fresh.

    If it's a quick highway accident death on a winter day, then straight to the hospital morgue, then to the funeral home, it would be fresher than most of the meat in your supermarket cold case.
