Here are a few images from last night at Farmer John slaughterhouse in Vernon, CA. These pigs are starving and dehydrated to the point that many are panting heavily, having had no food or water for days. They are covered in sores and deep lacerations, from having no space to move around. There are pools of blood and pus everywhere. They have been laying in their own waste for days, and many are too weak and sickly to move.
We are privileged and empowered by our knowledge of what is systematically happening to these poor animals, but nothing will change unless we change our behavior and stop supporting this violence.
