From the smallest of insects, to tigers, to humans, to the largest whale in the sea.  We all have one thing in common.  We are all Eartlings, each and everyone one of us. 

IF you have a Netflix Account, please add the Movie "Earthlings" to your queue and watch it.  I can almost guarantee this movie will change the way you feel about animals in every single way possible.  It covers animal abuse in every single way possible, whether it be pets, the food supply, the fur industry, and animals used for both science and entertainment (circuses, zoos, etc).  I can't guarantee that it will change anyone's mind, but it is nothing short of shocking and heartbreaking.   The movie is understandably gruesome and I wouldn't recommend it for younger viewers, but this is a movie that simply needs to be seen by everyone.   I watch movies like this and get nothing short of angry for the way we treat animals in our society. This movie pulls no punches and shows graphic footage to prove the point that we are all earthlings and no resident of Earth is more dangerous than mankind.  Animal Abuse is wrong, whether it's done for food, entertainment, or for science.  We as a society have allowed all these abuses to happen, and it's time for it to stop.
