Oh, I agree. Absolutely. It’s obvious to me that animals are capable of empathy. I also feel that far more humans would choose not to eat meat if they were required to witness the animal being slaughtered prior to it being cooked for their meal. If they were given non-meat alternatives, I believe most people would choose them. The problem, as I see it, is that people are so far removed from where their food actually comes from that they don’t experience the desire to choose something more humane.
