Yesterday afternoon I watched Earthlings a film so devastatingly honest in its depiction of mans cruelty that I literally wept through the first 30 minutes. To take up a lifestyle but not explore the impact it may have on other living creatures seemed irresponsible to me. I had read so much about this film I put it in my queue. On the other hand to continue down a path of exploitation is even more irresponsible so I finally sat down to view after having this movie on my shelf for over a month now. I had to stop watching after about 40 minutes because it was so raw and disturbing. Since it was a Netflix rental I stuck it in the mail but then this morning I ordered a copy for myself determined to watch the entire thing. Even companion animals can be exploited if we don’t have the means or the time to give them what they need. I can’t imagine anyone not being impacted by this documentary.
