Instead of being free animals, these animals are forced to sit in their cage and wait in fear of the next vivisector to pull them out of their cage to preform the next round of painful experiments. In most cases, the pain, stress, and boredom drive these animals to develop neurotic behaviors such as spinning in circles, rocking their bodies back and fourth and even biting and gnawing on their own limbs. They frantically shake, and try to hide in fear when a human approaches or even walks by their cage. After a life full of horrible pain, torture, fear and loneliness, most research animals end up being killed at the very same lab they were held captive.
To get the terrified pigs on to the vehicles for transport the animals may be hit on their highly sensitive noses or prodded with electric rods. There is no law regulating the maximum voltage usable.
The animals are then packed so tightly into the vehicles that as one former transporter observed, their intestines are actually forced out of their anus’.
Millions of pigs die in transport each year. The pigs may be moved over long distances for three days or more. During transport, the pigs usually are not provided with food or water.
Traveling through extreme climatic conditions from burning hot to freezing cold, pigs have been found frozen to the sides of the vehicle. These animals are then just left to die as they can not be sold for meat. Workers then drag and kick the remaining pigs to remove them from the truck.
sometimes i feel like the only thing i do right in my life is making awesome vegan food with my friends.
waffles for dinner with coconut spread and an agave/maple mixture for syrup. sweet potatoes& kale. also, coconut/ plantain tea (its the fucking truth).
I absolutely agree that this is depressing and heartbreaking. Those who watch this come out much more aware. It took me days to finish Earthlings. The Holocaust comes to mind. No one wanted to look. I challenge you to look and have compassion. Imagine if you were the one being treated in this way. You would hope that someone would care enough to take a little time out of their wonderful life to understand your pain.
