Did you know?
Cows can smell blood from up to 8kms away and can hear low and high frequency sounds much better than humans can.
Now, imagine being loaded onto a truck and sent to your death, imagine being able to sense that death long before you reach your final destination.
This is the final moments of a cows life. #melbournecowsave #thesavemovement #melbournevegan #bearingwitness #vegansinaustralia

Pre Easter rally with Melbourne Cow Save and Melbourne Eggs Exposed. This time of the year can be just as cruelty free as any other time. www.veganeasy.org #melbournecowsave #vegan #crueltyfree

*Meet the Victims of Animal Agriculture*

Meeting the victims of animal agriculture changes you. Seeing photos online or watching videos educates and helps break the disconnect.
But when you come face to face with the victims, when you look them in the eyes and see their absolute fear, their absolute desire to live, that is when the horror of the animal holocaust becomes real.
So meet the victims. ๐Ÿ’š *All these animals have now had their throats slit.๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ’” **These 4 beautiful loving animals were killed at a slaughterhouse in Melbourne in the last 4 months** Words by Toronto Cow Save.
But the eyes are specifically of Melbourne Cattle who have been on trucks to slaughter. #melbournecowsave #thesavemovement #animalactivism #animalrights #cattle #cows #vegansofinstagram #vegansinaustralia

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.

More photos to come.

A very Happy Easter to all our Vegan friends on the other side of the globe that are celebrating right now! Much love from all your animal-loving pals here in Melbourne, Australia โค๏ธ

So one of the reasons I haven't been very active on Instagram lately is my phone has been a bit of a pain in the butt. It's 4 years old and doesn't have much battery life so I've not been putting much priority on using it to get awesome photos. If you're wanting to know what I've been up to, you can keep up on YouTube and my other social media however.
Speaking of, today I attended The Truth About Dairy event in Bourke Street Mall. There were so many lovely people there all sharing the truth about what cows and calves go through. So keep an eye out for the vlog of today coming soon. ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ’•

Earth Hour is on tonight from 8:30pm to 9:30pm.
It was launched ten years ago and the general public is urged to switch off their lights and electronic equipment for one hour to help bring awareness to global warming and climate change.
Unfortunately there's no education around Earth Hour that promotes a plant based diet, even though we all know that being Vegan is one of the best things you can do to help with climate change!

And heartbreakingly, it also encourages people to buy their cookbook....which is FULL of animal products.
To help the planet, the best thing you can do is give up meat/dairy and all animal products and choose veganism. It's so easy in this day and age!

Ok guys, there is seriously SO MUCH VEGAN CHOCOLATE out there. This brand, Loving Earth, is particularly delicious but there are soooo many other yummy ones too. Especially around Easter time, which we've just had, there are so many varieties of vegan chocolate, it's astounding.
My friend Nat at @melbournecowsave has put together an extensive list of brands of vegan chocolate that are available in Victoria Australia. If you live elsewhere I'm sure you will be able to find a similar list in your neck of the woods too. ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿช

This legitimately makes me miserable. These poor souls shipped off and murdered. And for what? #Repost @animalactivistsforum with @repostapp

*Did you know more Cows were killed in World War 1 than people?* Because it's Anzac Day here in Australia, we wanted to give you a bit of information about how Cows were used in World War 1.

During World War 1, there was a bombing campaign orchestrated over England. The only aircraft at that time capable of carrying the bombs the necessary distance were airships.
Unfortunately, they decided that the best material available for holding hydrogen was a calfโ€™s intestines, and it took upward of 250,000 young cows to make one aircraft. Germany built 140 of them.
So that's roughly 35 million Cows that were killed in World War 1, just for the airships :( To read more:

Less than 2 weeks away until our Mother's Day Rally! Will you be there?
Saturday May 6th, Bourke Street Mall, 12pm-2pm.

Our guest speaker is Penny, one the amazing Co-Founders of Big Sky Sanctuary! And we'll be collecting much needed donations for Big Sky Sanctuary on the day.
They are located an hour and a half from Melbourne and currently have 18 cows living at Big Sky, ranging in ages from 11 months to approx. 5 years. All up they have 99 residents (not including humans, of which there are 3). They are sheep (31), cows (18), roosters (28), ducks (2), geese (6), pigs (6), dogs (2) and cats (6). They are fully self funded so let's all come together and help them out :) #melbournecowsave #thesavemovement #cowspiracy #bearwitness #veganlife #crueltyfree #someonenotsomething #friendsnotfood #activism #animalequality #choosecompassion #choosevegan #earthlings #emptythecages #bethechange #stopeatinganimals #animalsarefriends #animalsarenotfood #animalactivism #melbournevegans #vegansofmelbourne #vegansofaustralia #animalliberation #visitmelbourne #savemovement #pigtrial #animalrights #livestock #mothersday #bigskysanctuary

This is half of an Ear Tag we found on the footpath near the entrance to Diamond Valley Pork during this weeks Pig Save Vigil.
It most likely was still attached to the Cows skin as they were dropped off at the Tannery on the corner, and had drifted down the road to us.
The Cow that had this ear tag in their ear is now dead. They were killed for their flesh, for their skin, for their insides.
Can you imagine the terror and the fear this Cow went through as they were loaded onto a truck, driven for many hours, and arrived at the slaughterhouse?
How absolutely heartbreaking that their entire life is now remembered only by this ear tag :( Please choose compassion and not cruelty.
Please go Vegan.
They need you to.

@Regrann from @melbournecowsave - *Melbourne Cow Save - Mother's Day Rally*

On Saturday May 6th, from 12pm-2pm, please join us in Bourke Street Mall for our Mother's Day Rally.

We'll be focusing on the Mother/Baby bond of all Cows. All of them used and abused. Showing the public that these mothers don't deserve to go through this, and either do their babies.
We want the general public to learn about the reality of dairy and the meat/leather/pet food industry and what kinder options they can choose. We'll also have our Dairy-Free Shopping Guide available.

This kind of event is perfect to start your animal activism journey and it's family friendly too :) We'll be having signs available for you to hold, people can also hand out leaflets and others experienced in outreach can do that too.
You really just need to bring yourself and we'll have everything for you :) Let's all come together for the Cows on Mothers Day and stand in solidarity and be a human voice for them.
Thanks everyone! See you there :) Note: Mother's Day is actually May 14th this year but we are having this rally a week earlier on May 6th.

Pre Easter rally with Melbourne Cow Save and Melbourne Eggs Exposed. This time of the year can be just as cruelty free as any other time. www.veganeasy.org #melbournecowsave #vegan #crueltyfree

Easter Eggs: not all they're cracked up to be. Are you free to join me today (12th April) in the Melbourne CBD (Australia) for at least 30 minutes to hand out some Vegan Easter Eggs & flyers? We'll be meeting 12pm onwards at the Bourke St Mall (outside Myer) standing up for the billions of bobby calves & baby chicks that are killed worldwide in the dairy & egg industries. Please repost this if you have time! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป ๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿค

Thank you to everyone who was there for them ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ™(((๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ‘)))~ @Regrann from @melbournecowsave - Today Melbourne Cow Save and Melbourne Sheep Save held their joint City Vigil.

In 2 hours, we had 1 Cow truck and 3 Sheep trucks go past. The first Sheep truck we witnessed was really bad. So many down Sheep, legs sticking out and ones not standing. Faeces and Urine were covering the floor. We don't know how long they'd been traveling for, but it was definitely many many hours.
The Cow truck we witnessed was full of Black Angus steers. They were peering out the slit where they could see and made eye contact with us. They were mooing as they were going through the city. It was so heartbreaking.
Thank you to everyone who came today. We had 13 activists all up. Including a beautiful animal activist couple from Canada!
We welcome everyone and if you're visiting Melbourne for a short time, please let us know and we can give you details of any events during the time you're here :) #melbournecowsave #thesavemovement #cowspiracy #bearwitness #veganlife #crueltyfree #someonenotsomething #friendsnotfood #activism #animalequality #choosecompassion #choosevegan #earthlings #emptythecages #bethechange #stopeatinganimals #animalsarefriends #animalsarenotfood #animalactivism #melbournevegans #vegansofmelbourne #vegansofaustralia #animalliberation #visitmelbourne #savemovement #pigtrial #animalrights #livestock #liamhemsworth

She's a Dairy Cow.
She's someone.
She's not "number 1137". She was bred so every part of her could be used, abused and exploited by humans.
Every 12 months she is forcibly impregnated and then gives birth to a baby who is stolen from her.

If she gives birth to a male. He will be killed within one week of age. OR he may live for a few more weeks, tied up in a pen, barely able to move, and then killed for "Veal". If she gives birth to a female. The calf will either be sent to slaughter within a week. OR raised in another paddock away from her mum so she can replace her mum as part of the milking herd when her mum is "spent" and sent to slaughter in 4 years and then her cycle of being forcibly impregnated and milked for humans begins.
You don't have to contribute to this anymore.
You can choose compassion and not cruelty.

I apologize for saying it like this but Fuck you # dairylovers #Repost @melbournecowsave This cute little guy is a Bobby Calf. He's only a few days old.

He was stolen from his mum within a few hours of being born so his mothers milk can be used for humans instead of him.
Because he's a male who was born to a Dairy Cow, he's classified as a "waste product" to the dairy industry because he can't produce milk.
So he was moved to another paddock away from his mum and is now tied up with a chain around his neck until the truck comes to pick him up and take him to a slaughterhouse.
This is the dairy industry.
If you consume dairy, you're contributing to the suffering and killing of so many male calves.
Estimates in Australia are around 700,000 calves a year that are killed within 1 week of being born because they are of no use to the dairy industry.
You don't have to contribute to this anymore.
It's really so easy to cut out dairy.
