On Saturday February 4th, Australia sent a LIVE EXPORT ship from a port in Victoria, with 1200 cattle aboard to China to be slaughtered. They were aged between 18-24 months and were mainly Black Angus as pictured below. They will spend over a week on a ship, in treacherous waters, with extreme temperatures. Unable to lie down at the same time, they are trapped in small pens with extremely hard and abrasive decking where they suffer from lameness due to hoof and leg injuries because of the flooring. They are put on these ships because of money. Plain and simple. But we MUST remember they are someone, not something. And we must keep on speaking out about how cruel this really is. Animals should not be used and abused. Please choose compassion and not cruelty. #melbournecowsave#thesavemovement#banliveexport
With such fragile mental health, it's hard not to be broken when looking through my camera roll at photos taken of sweet animals who had their lives cruelly taken away for unacceptable reasons. However, then I come across photos like this where I am reminded of the sweet souls I have met, who are lucky enough to live out their lives free from harm, smothered with unconditional love. This is Sarabi, and I absolutely adore her. She is so affectionate and will follow you no matter where you go. (Kovu's booty in the background is cute too.) The hardest part of being vegan is watching your friends be devoured for selfish consumption. veganeasy.org | challenge22.com --------------------------------------------------- #animalliberation#cowsofinstagram#govegan#crueltyfree#vegan#vegansofig#veganforthem#veganforher#veganforhim#animalrights#animalrescue#melbournecowsave#thesavemovement
Yesterday in Melbourne, at the back of a slaughterhouse, 3 Angus Bulls stood in a paddock with no shelter. It was 34 degrees Celsius and extremely hot. There's no law in Victoria that says farmers have to legally provide shelter for Cows. It's just "recommended". These 3 Bulls are directly next to a large slaughterhouse that kills Cows every day. Did you know Cows can smell blood from up to 8kms away? So it's extremely likely these darlings can smell death every single day they are there. How scared would they be not knowing if they are next? It's so sad :( Please choose compassion and not cruelty. Please go Vegan. www.veganeasy.org #melbournecowsave#veganactivism#thesavemovement
What a day. Incredibly moving speeches, hundreds of compassionate people. Was really proud to be walking with these fine people, for animals. Stay strong. All the love. For change. For what's right. We're on the right side of history. Hold fast.
At the MELBOURNE March to Close All Slaughterhouses.
I've been thinking about you a lot lately. The fact that you never did anything wrong, that you just wanted to live a peaceful life and share love with your herd. The fact that you were tortured, impregnated against your will and had your baby stolen from you repeatedly, until you couldn't give any more. The fact that you're no longer here, and while I take solace in the fact you're no longer suffering, knowing your death would have been terrifying, unnecessary and unjust - it haunts me. I'll never let you be forgotten. I will stand for you always. You and all the others like you, I will share your stories. I will show people that you deserve justice, love, and compassion. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I see you. I'm trying. I'm sorry. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ veganeasy.org | cowtruth.com | ditchdairy.com.au --------------------------------------------- #animalrights#animalliberation#crueltyfree#vegan#melbournepigsave#melbournegoatsave#melbournecowsave#stoptheslaughter#melbournesheepsave#melbournechickensave#thesavemovement#veganrevolution#stoptheslaughter#endtheviolence
