I've Lost All Hope For Humanity...


There is no excuse for this. They were all babies—less than 6 months old. It doesn’t have to be this way. This is not an isolated incident of rare cruelty. This is a rare incident of systematic cruelty being thrust into the open.

On Wednesday October 5, 2016 a truck full of pigs overturned in front of Fearmans Pork in Burlington, Ontario. Pigs were trapped inside, screaming. Some escaped and wandered the streets, outside for the first time in their life. Those able to move on their own were walked through the parking lot of the slaughterhouse to their death. Injured pigs were not “fit” to be “processed” They waited in the grass for hours. Activists begged to give them sanctuary—they had homes waiting for them. Fearmans refused to show mercy and executed them, trying to hide their barbarity with flimsy cardboard.

THIS is what you pay for when you eat meat, dairy, eggs. YOU can change this. See the information below. There is no excuse.

I cried that day, what these animals go through at human hands is unimaginable. Thank you so much for being a voice for them.

I have, too. :/

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

That's very close to where I live (Like, less than half hour drive). Sadly, I get the feeling the only people who cared about it happening were vegans/vegetarians.

Edit: Just saw a Brazilian animal rights page I follow post about this. That's how much the news have travelled already.

It's all over now. Which is should be. Ever single death should be in the news.
