In the multimedia package I produced for my master’s, there’s a video of me killing a pig. It’s too long and pretty anticlimactic, but what’s interesting to me is, while I stand behind what I wrote, how different it is from the text about the same incident (which originally appeared on this blog). I wrote the piece as soon as I got home but didn’t edit the video for a few weeks.
On another note, it’s disappointing — though not surprising — that lots of meat eaters refuse to watch the slaughter. If you have issues watching a video, which you can start and stop at your leisure, in the privacy of your own home, you should probably rethink the whole eating dead animals thing.
I know some might find it vomit-inducing, but death is part of the bargain, right?
