Mercy for Animals have recently posted a must watch video of five young children reacting to photos of animals raised on factory farms.

It’s not hard for children to see the inherent problems of industrial scale animal farming. As you’ll see in this video, children immediately recognise when an animal is being mistreated. They understand that all animals must be treated with compassion, respect and moral consideration.

Humane education is more than teaching children to be kind, compassionate and respectful individuals. It is about nurturing the natural sense of kindness and compassion that already exists in all young children, to ensure that it never become lost, dismissed and devalued.

We owe it to our children to empower them with the knowledge and skills they need to make a real change and create real solutions for the great moral problems they will inherit in the future. This video is a reminder of how possible our mission is.
