Nothing can prepare you for the sensory assault of 10,000 pigs in close quarters: the stench of their shit, piled three feet high in the slanted trenches below; the blood on sows’ snouts cut by cages so tight they can’t turn around or lie sideways; the racking cries of broken-legged pigs, hauled into alleys by dead-eyed workers and left there to die of exposure.
That hour before her end is usually the only time a pig sees a government rep; from the moment she’s born, she’s on her own, spending four or five years in a tiny crate and kept perpetually pregnant and made sick from breathing in her own waste while fed food packed with growth-promoting drugs, and sometimes even garbage. (The word “garbage” isn’t proverbial: Mixed in with the grain can be an assortment of trash, including ground glass from light bulbs, used syringes and the crushed testicles of their young. Very little on a factory farm is ever discarded.) Save the occasional staffer who becomes disgruntled and uploads pictures of farm crimes on #Facebook
Animals raised for food are not viewed as living beings, but commodities to be exploited. Many are abused so severely that they can no longer walk, at which point workers callously drag them to their death
.Animals desperately want to live, and they struggle until their last breath. Like us, farmed animals have an innate desire to survive, feel happiness and joy, and experience the comfort and love of family and friends. Farmed animals do not give their lives to us—their lives are taken from them, violently and unnecessarily.
Stop paying for this!
