This was recently brought to my attention by one of my fellow FB friends and animal rescuers Miranda Wells.  This is a documentary series about, and I quote it’s description given:

EARTHLINGS  is a feature length documentary about humanity’s absolute dependence on animals (for pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and scientific research) but also illustrates our complete disrespect for these so-called “non-human providers.” The film is narrated by Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix (GLADIATOR) and features music by the critically acclaimed platinum artist Moby .

The series makes some very awesome points that competely hit home.  In it’s examination of the term “earthling” it describes how this term is applicable to all of us living on this planet, not just us humans and our complete disregard and lack of respect for the other “earthlings” we share the planet with. 

Some images are graphic, but it brings to awareness how completely barbaric and vulgar, not to mention how widespread, the cruel treatment of animals are intertwined with our cultures. 

Watch and be educated!
