More Than 52 Billion Land Animals Slaughtered Every Year.

These are the numbers of animals killed worldwide by the meat, egg, and dairy industries since you opened this webpage. These numbers do NOT include the many millions of animals killed each year in vivisection laboratories. They do NOT include the millions of dogs and cats killed in animal shelters every year. This counter does not include the estimated 90 billion marine animals slaughtered yearly. They do NOT include the animals who died while held captive in the animal-slavery enterprises of circuses, rodeos, zoos, and marine parks. They do NOT include the animals killed while pressed into such blood sports as bullfighting, cockfighting, dog fighting, and bear-baiting, nor do they include horses and greyhounds who were exterminated after they were no longer deemed suitable for racing.

Data for the Kill Counter are based on worldwide animal slaughter statistics culled from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations for the year 2003. According to these statistics, about 53 billion land animals are slaughtered annually worldwide. (It should be noted that at the time the numbers were compiled, they were the minimum numbers of animals killed each year. The actual numbers may be significantly greater insofar as some countries or territories either did not report, or deliberately excluded, some statistics.) Of the more than 200 countries researched, the top three—the United States, China, and Brazil—consume a staggering 46 percent of these animals as food. The United States alone consumes roughly 20 percent of all animals slaughtered for food even though it contains less than five percent of the world's population.

Global Slaughter Statistics for 2003 (estimates are much higher for 2011):
  • 45,895,000,000 (45.9 billion) chickens
  • 2,262,000,000 (2.3 billion) ducks
  • 1,244,000,000 (1.2 billion) pigs
  • 857,000,000 (857 million) rabbits
  • 691,000,000 (691 million) turkeys
  • 533,000,000 (533 million) geese
  • 515,000,000 (515 million) sheep
  • 345,000,000 (345 million) goats
  • 292,000,000 (292 million) cows and calves
  • 65,000,000 (65 million) other rodents
  • 63,000,000 (63 million) pigeons and other birds
  • 23,000,000 (23 million) buffaloes
  • 4,000,000 (4 million) horses
  • 3,000,000 (3 million) donkeys and mules
  • 2,000,000 (2 million) camels and other camelids.

TOTAL: 52,794,000,000 land animals
United States: 9,116,248,000
