Two years ago I got up before dawn to witness one of my bulls being taken through the abattoir. I made a video of the spectacle, an extract from which was put on Youtube with the title “A Kiss Before Dying”. The title alludes to a moment when the bull appears to share a kiss with a cow a few moments before it’s taken to its fate.
It wasn’t a pleasant experience watching the bull being killed and then its blood being let and its innards removed. It wasn’t pleasant either seeing how desensitised that abattoir staff had become; how they appeared to enjoy the killing, how they cheered when its throat was cut. None of the gruesome bits were included in my video, but my PA, who did the editing, found the spectacle so appalling that she was put off eating meat for a year.
To my surprise the short Youtube version of “A Kiss Before Dying” has recently become a Youtube hit, with 62,000 views and pages of comments. I’ve also been surprised by how vicious some of the comments from vegetarians have been. These have been received in the last few days:
Awwwwahh :'( YOU FUCKING BASTARDS -.- i hate animal slaughter. if you want to eat meat, slaughter the people in prison, the ones who have slaughtered other people, they are the ones who deserve it, what have animals done to deserve this cruelty?

I thought the abattoir staff were a little bit brutal, but it seems they’ve got nothing on the veggies. It must be all that red meat they’re not eating.
Postscript 12th December: In the three weeks since this was posted the number of views of this video has risen to 126,079 and the comments from the veggies get better and better. Here’s the latest:
When I see people doing this to animals, I look forward to The End of This World. Whatever befalls mankind, he brought it upon himself.
