Can you look into their eyes and honestly say your tastebuds, convenience and habit is worth more than the life of these beautiful, loving and intelligent creatures?
Pigs are just as intelligent and loving/caring as our pet dogs are, if not more.
The way we humans treat the most vulnerable of the planet, is a disgrace. Most pigs spend their entire lives cramped into factory farms, confined into metal crates, living amongst their own feces, never seeing the light of day until they are crammed onto trucks taken to be slaughtered, often having to endure watching their friends be killed right before their eyes, awaiting the same fate. Pigs are protective and loving, feel fear and pain just like humans do.
All animals, whether cow, pig, dog, chicken, fish, horse, giraffe, whale, sheep, etc, are sentient, desire to be free, and flee from pain. Fish are being pulled out of the oceans by the millions of tons each year. And on an environmental level, fishing and animal agriculture are destroying the ecosystem. For very 1 pound of fish caught in the ocean, up to 5 pounds of unintended marine species are caught and discarded as by-kill. Animal poop from livestock farms run off into our rivers and lakes, polluting the earth. Animal agriculture is the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution and habitat destruction.
This photo was taken by @sfisherx . Their mother was rescued and she gave birth to them at @thehappyherd farm sanctuary. They will never be exposed to the cruelty almost all pigs face at the hands of humans. And as she put so well, “The reality of these industries, like pig farming, is devastating…Change begins with you. The animals + the planet, your children + future generations depends on YOU to care. To make changes, no matter if you start with baby steps. Please stop covering your ears and eyes and become a part of the solution. It’s never been easier.” #bevegan
