These people that considered themselves vegetarian and vegan strongly believe that killing animals is unethical because of the pain that the animals have to endure. However, these people who refuse to eat meat are unaware that there are animals being harmed during the process of harvesting crops. For instance, in Barbara Kingsolver’s “Animal, Vegetable Miracle,” she describes of how the harvest of crops kills animals as well, both directly and indirectly (Source B). To prevent crops from being destroyed by insects, they are sprayed with pesticides, these toxic gases are harmful to other animals as well such as birds, killing approximately 67 million a year. Likewise, machines used to harvest these crops like the sickle mower harms the environment of small animals such as rabbits and foxes by demolishing their homes, causing a disturbance in their way of life.
The battery cage chickens that escape are left to walk around on the ground covered in other chickens waste, and breath in the harmful gasses that are related from the waste that often cause respiratory diseases that 80% of the time leads to death . these chickens have no chance to live in these conditions but some manage to survive the torture just to encounter even more
Ever since the beginning of time, meat has been a staple of the human diet. People have many reasons why they chose not to consume meat.

The meat industry likes to portray to the consumers happy farm animals grazing in fields, having happy lives, and long futures: however, nothing could be further from the truth. Every second innocent animals are being sent to slaughterhouses to be killed in such cruel and inhumane ways. The torture that goes down in slaughterhouses is something the meat industry does not want the consumers to find out. Farm animals that go to slaughterhouses are beaten, broiled, and dismembered alive by impatient, careless workers. Employees at slaughterhouses need to be immediately stopped.
All it is saying is that that are going to get these helpless animals and these people at BSI are going to gas them with chemicals, inject them with diseases, and risk of killing them.

Animals lives are just as important and valuable as humans. One website called SIRS Issues Researcher says “Supporters of animal rights believe that animals have an inherent worth a value completely separate from their usefulness to humans. We believe that every creature with a will to live has a right to live free from pain and suffering” Website evidence also states “If you wouldn’t eat a dog, why eat a pig? Dogs and pigs have the same capacity to feel pain, but it is prejudice based on species that allows us to think of one animal as a companion and the other as dinner” This evidence supports the claim in three ways.

For instance, Jeffrey Dahmer is one of the many notorious psychopathic serial killers who torture animals for satisfaction.
We need to stop makeup, cleaning products, medicine and all other chemical based products being tested on animals not only because it is horrendously cruel but there is also a huge amount of money that is wasted in the process of testing. According to most statistics, human results only agree 5-25 percent of the time which means that the process of animal testing is practically pointless as the results hardly ever benefit our knowledge of how to improve the products
