30 Bananas a Day!

I'm not planning on turning into an eco-terrorist ; although I am not completely against it. My question is whether animals that make great pets , such as pigs , can be rescued from their live of torture in factory farms and become pets before they are slaughtered  . Or is it better to put them out of their misery like they did with Micheal Vick's dogs?

IMO, this is like trading one set of problems of the imprisonment and exploitation of animals for human benefit and pleasure, for another, the pet industry. 

If you have a pet pig, then sally down the street will want one too and so on.  That in turn might mean another problem in the manufacturing of their pet food.

IMO, a compromise to the situation would be to make sure they are neutered and unable to reproduce, try to recreate their natural life settings, and then let them live out their natural lives.  Some animals like pigs might be able to be released into the wild again in wild bore populations.

Not all the Michael Vick dogs were euthanized.  47 of 51 were saved.

The people that do this to animals are terrorists. By trying to save them, you are not an "eco-terrorist." You are a good person, a patriot, a samaritan, etc.

brilliantly expressed, peter!

@Peter,

Like Prad...I too share and respect your sentiments.

That being said, if you steal a pig from a slaughterhouse (good luck with that) they'll just get another. It won't do anything to stop the demand for dead pigs on the dinner plate.


This is one reason I also encourage people to continue to look towards the root of the problems.  While I applaud and support animal rights activists work, and or saving what animals we can, the problem will continue in one form or another until our cultural paradigm is totally changed towards our diets, our views of animals, and even the pet industry. 

Slaughterhouses are a symptom of a problem. If that is what people want, that is what they will get.  And for many people, money truly is the root of all evil, for even if they do not consume the animals themselves, they will kill them for profit. 

If we steal one animal...they will replace it.  If we burn the slaughterhouse, they will build another one.  If we make it illegal, they will bootleg. If we arrest these people, and cut off the head of the snake, another will grow in its place. 

So we have to go to the sources of the streams here.  Educate people that these habits are not ethical and or healthy.  Provide alternative jobs to slaughterhouse workers. Change laws and or monetary channels of support. 

Actually, everyone should be required to read the following book

The World Peace Diet by Will Tuttle

Exactly. We should treat them like children. Imagine if we started doing that to babies. Like "A Modest Proposal "
