A post to anyone who cares about or loves animals and want them to have a good life:
We all agree that “unnecessary” animal suffering and death are morally wrong.
I think you all would agree that a Loving and Compassionate Creator wouldn't endorse “unnecessary” animal suffering and death.
that means anything at all, it must mean that we cannot justify animal
suffering and death by reasons of pleasure or convenience. But what is

have the right to be free and not to be enslaved, confined, inflicted
with suffering and pain and killed just because of "tradition", "taste",
"enjoyment" or "convenience". I really recommend this article:
you are not a vegan, you are participating directly in animal
exploitation. Being a vegan is easy, better for your health, and the
most powerful way that you, as an individual, can say “no” to animal
