Flynn is a gentle giant and absolutely loves to be rubbed and cuddled ❤️ The fact that he is even alive today is a complete miracle because he was born in a factory farm where from the day he was born his life and death were already mapped out for him. At just two months old he was loaded up into a truck with hundreds of other frightened piglets and was on his way to the fattening farm where he would live in extreme confinement, without any daylight or natural earth under his feet, until at 6 months of age he would have been sent to the slaughterhouse. In a bizarre twist of fate the truck carrying them to the farm crashed. Many of the pigs died from the impact, others were shot on site because of the severity of their injuries, others were stolen by local people as they took the opportunity to grab some 'free meat', and all remaining piglets that could still stand up were rounded up and loaded onto another truck to continue their journey to the fattening farm. Luckily for Flynn (and 13 other piglets) some activists rushed to the crash site to try and help the survivors, and he was collected and brought to the sanctuary to start a new life. Without a doubt, if he had not been involved in that crash he would already have been slaughtered by now and once his body was chopped up, little pieces of him would have ended up on supermarket shelves wrapped in plastic or pre cooked into a ready meal waiting for someone to thoughtlessly pick up and eat, without a moments thought as the WHO that meat used to be. It sounds horrifying but unfortunately reality can be a scary thing to face when we strip away all the bs and lay out the bare facts of the food industry. Flynn was the lucky one, but each one of the billions of animals slaughtered for food each year is just as much of an individual as Flynn- equally as capable of feeling pain, suffering, love, and joy. All life is precious, including those who have been labeled 'food animals.' You only have to look at this video to see that they enjoy life as much as the dogs and cats we share our homes with. It's not our right to take their lives away from them, especially when there is no need for us to eat meat.
