There is no difference of the animal cruelty in Romania, compared to Sweden or any other country.
"In this country alone [USA], we kill over ten billion land animals
annually for food. The animals we eat—even those supposedly raised
as much as the dogs that are used in dog fighting. There is no “need”
for us to eat meat, dairy, or eggs. Indeed, these foods are increasingly
linked to various human diseases and animal agriculture is an
environmental disaster for the planet. We impose pain, suffering, and
death on these billions of sentient nonhumans because we enjoy eating
their flesh and the products that we make from them.
is something positively bizarre about condemning Michael Vick for using
dogs in a hideous form of entertainment when 99% of us also use animals
that are every bit as sentient as dogs in another hideous form of
entertainment that is no more justifiable than fighting dogs: eating
animals and animal products."
Veganism is our moral obligation; and if we are not vegans we are paying for animal cruelty by each non-vegan choice.
think it is very hard to compare animal cruelty in different countries.
A big reason to this is that we are not exposed to e.g. what goes on in
the slaughter houses in Sweden. We are aware of the intensity of only a
tiny amount of all the animal cruelty that takes place in different
countries. All enslavement, all use, all killing of animals for food,
clothes, amusement or any other reason, is animal cruelty. And usually
this against animal cruelty-campaigns disregards the daily cruelty
caused by all of our society's daily non-vegan choices.
people say that Chinese people in general are more cruel to animals
compared to people in e.g. USA. This is not true. US enslaves, kills and
hurts many more animals per person compared to China. There are more
individuals killed in China, but the China population is 4 times the
population of US.: http://bloganders.blogspot.no/2013/04/there-is-not-more-animal-cruelty-in.html
focusing on incidents of animal cruelty, an erroneous picture is
created. Billions of people are opposed to animal cruelty in this world,
yet they daily support it by their daily meals and other choices that
they partake in.
cruelty will never end until our society stop killing and hurting
animals at our daily meals by consuming animal products: http://bloganders.blogspot.no/2013/05/why-does-many-people-abuse-humans-dogs.html
