Pigs are raised indoors- with no access to sunlight,  grass or soil to stand on.  Instead they stand & lie down on concrete floor with no bedding or room to move freely about. IT'S ALL ABOUT RAISING THE ANIMALS AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE TO SEND TO SLAUGHTER. IT'S AN INDUSTRY THAT IS DRIVEN BY MONEY- WITH NO CONCERN THAT THEY ARE DEALING WITH LIVING BEINGS WHO FEEL FEAR & PHYSICAL PAIN & WHO WANT TO LIVE.

SLAUGHTER HOUSE:

  • Killing.
  • Violence.
  • Abuse.
  • Fear.
  • Suffering.
  • Animals want to live.
  • They can smell/sense the fear, blood & death of the animals before them.
Pigs being gassed- this causes confusion, fear & panic- they squeal trying desperately to escape Final journey to slaughterhouse. Cow with head in "kill box"- a bolt will be put into the cow's brain. You can see the fear on the cow's face- it doesn't want to die.  The white of cow's eyes are only visible when they are stressed or scared.   Animals are treated as objects or commodities. Terms such as LIVESTOCK, BEEF, POULTRY, PORK & CATTLE reflect this & to desensitize us to what we are eating was once a LIVING & FEELING ANIMAL.    

WHAT IS SPECIESISM?

Is the human-held belief that all other non-human animals are inferior. We've all heard the saying "dumb/stupid animal." It is similar to SEXISM OR RACISM. For example most people wouldn't treat their cat or dog the way cow's or chickens are treated.

Currently under the LAW (which reflects society's morals) animals are PROPERTY so can be BOUGHT, SOLD & KILLED.

Cows & pigs are MAMMALS JUST LIKE US- they have a NERVOUS SYSTEM so they feel physical PAIN & they FEEL FEAR/PANIC &  they get sad, happy/excited- if you doubt this look at a dog or cat who are also mammals.
