This girl knows the truth: Animals are our friends.

A recent video shows the touching moment a little Irish girl discovers where meat comes from - and swears it off forever.

Five-year-old Indie-Rose had asked to help prepare dinner, but when she saw the turkey she was supposed to help cook she quickly put two and two together.

In the video, she sobs at the kitchen table as her mother's partner attempts to soothe her. "I don't like when people eat animals," Indie-Rose says. "I don't want them to be chopped up."

She then tearfully explains, "I don't want to kill a horsey." When her mother's partner says that they don't eat horse, she sadly responds: "But pigs are nice. And chicks are nice. And cows are nice."

"I don't like when they chop animal-people up," she adds.

This girl might be young, but she's wise beyond her years. And according to her mother, Indie-Rose has been vegetarian ever since the incident.

"She's always had a soft heart towards animals," her mother told The Independent. "She wouldn't even let me kill a fly or a spider."
