* CruelAndUnusualDeath

to:

* CruelAndUnusualDeathCruelAndUnusualDeath: The documentary uses real footage of shelters, slaughterhouses, and similar to illustrate what animals go through. Some highlights:
** A stray dog gets tied up and tossed into the back of a garbage truck where it gets crushed to death. We don't see any gore, but the moment you understand what's about to happen is dreadful.
** The film notes that when a cow gets its [[SlashedThroat throat slit]] while upside down, it essentially drowns in its own blood.
** The animals that are killed for fur are killed by [[AssShove getting an electric rod in an unpleasant place]].
