The main point is that industrial animal Ag has huge emissions. Even if the true contribution of greenhouse gas is only 10% , reducing consumption of factory farmed meat can move the needle. This isn't being talked about widely, which was the main point of the movie

Most people eat cows and pigs. Is that what you are talking about? Historically, what large predators kept pig and cow populations in check?
If you are talking about deer, elk, and other animals that people hunt to feed themselves, that has nothing to do with the movie being discussed.
