If I were a pig, I would rather die like that than live like this

Photobucket


Line up all the pigs killed in the U.S. per year single file along a highway, and the pig line will stretch from L.A. to New York 35 times.

If I were unfortunate enough to be born as a pig, I would rather die by arrow than to live in a crate, while dreaming of a sip of Cappuccino.

Catherine Garneau Co-VP of the Global Anti-Hunting Coalition:
"A truckload of pigs destined for slaughter pulled over at a truckstop in Maryland...full of bruised, cut, scraped and overcrowded pigs. I'm sure they never expected two animal rights activists, me and Anthony Marr, to be at the truckstop at that time. We were able to get up to the truck for photos when the driver went inside to eat.These photos exemplify the abusive and horrendous conditions that animals endure in transport within the 'factory farm system'."
