Life expectancy verses age of death of "Livestock"
"Animals aren't kept around longer than they have to be, because farmers' paychecks increase the more animals that die. Feeding these animals costs a lot and they look at these animals like products. So the second that they hit "weight" to slaughter, which is usually when they are still a baby, they are shipped off to die. If we did any of these things to dogs, it would be ILLEGAL"

60 Billion Land Animals Killed Per Year; 3,000 per Second
"There are 7.2 Billion People on this planet. Each year we kill more animals than 9x the human population. Let's unravel this a bit and think about this for a second in regards to birthing them. We breed 9x the human population into existence EVERY YEAR, take these baby animals and start their 1st day in a life of hell, completely unnatural to them and by no crime of their own, year in and year out." -- Vegan BatGirl
We are animal lovers. We know animals are innocent and beautiful. None of us really made a decision about hurting them purposely, but we were born into a system that fed their body parts to us, without us getting a chance to decide if we were even OK with what happens to them before they land on our dinner plates.

Vegan Batgirl is here to reconnect you to the person that you always wanted to be. The person that truly loves animals and knows that we are here to protect them, not dominate them and definitely not participate in this horrific process.
Because whether you have desensitized yourself to their pain or ignore their suffering, animals are suffering tremendously to eat them. I have witnessed animals come into slaughterhouses, and through their perspective, they are begging for our mercy and do not volunteer themselves to suffer. More than 60 billion (9x the human population) are bred into existence every year, only to be killed before they are 8 months old.
THIS IS NOT A JUDGEMENT, THIS IS AN AWAKENING!
