Watched 'Earthlings" last night.
Was not thrilled with the presentation of this material in a regurgitated fashion.
Perhaps I am not giving credit to the time frame when the documentary was produced.
Although a most important concept, there could have been a greater impact by acknowledging that other Earthlings besides humans hunt and kill, not always in a "humane" fashion.
Interesting point. Since the central concept is that humans and other animals are
all Earthlings, I see your point about including how earthlings other than humans
also kill their prey, often violently.
Been a year since I watched it and pretty much I just remember that it showed some very nasty things being done to animals. Also seem to recall that it didn't have really high "production value" but was okay. Produced ≈ 2005, so it's not that old. ~ Even tough it said at the beginning that these were not isolated incidents, I was left wondering if maybe they had found and filmed the worst offences and that it wasn't really representative of the norm. ~ Since then through other reading and watching I've come to believe it is the norm that many animals are not treated well, though I'm not sure it's as bad as in Earthlings.
