We spoke for probably close to half an hour with the truck driver who was picking up the pigs heads at F A Gills. He especially scooted over in his seat to speak to us from the passenger side. When we asked why he said “well you’ve got to be friendly haven’t ya?”. He came across as a good person and as we spoke we could almost see the cogs turning in his mind. He has worked 43 years in the meat industry yet even he seemed to believe in ‘humane slaughter’ and ‘free range’. Towards the end of our conversation he asked if we witnessed chickens. He said it was horrible how they have no space to move in the cages. This all came from a man who transports severed pigs heads overseas. The disconnect is real and we can only hope to guide people into making that connection by never giving up; whether it be at the slaughterhouse or on the streets, we cannot give up talking. We have days where the sadness and anger gets to us and we don’t want to talk to those involved in this madness but when we do manage to have conversations like this it gives us hope, because if we can get somewhere with talking to someone who has spent almost half a century in the industry, we have a chance at educating those who already feel bad for the animals they eat (which is why they don’t want to think about them).
