🌼DAISY IN SOME DAISIES🌼
Before Daisy was at @happy_hen_animal_sanctuary she was collapsed on the floor of a factory farm with server arthritis.
Since Daisy needed medical attention, she would have been “thumped” as the industry calls it. Thumping is when humans grab infant baby pigs, and slam their heads against a concrete floor. They do this repeatedly until their skulls are smashed in and they are dead. This is what happens to every baby pig who is not “healthy and strong” enough to make it into the growing pins or to become a mother sow.
Those who make it past infancy will either be killed at 6 months old, or they will be held in a gestation crate their whole lives. Being impregnated over and over, having litter after litter taken away from you, to repeat this cycle.
This is a women rights issue. This is a ethical issue. This is a climate issue. This is a spiciest issue. This is racial issue. This is a life threatening issue for everyone born into the body of an animal who is exploited for “food”, “clothing”, and “testing”. Everyday we have the choice to vote with our dollar and our fork. By choosing to leave animals, their secretions, skin, and products experimented on animals, we are choosing to put life first. We are choosing compassion for all.
Everyday, I am grateful to have friends like Daisy. Daisy inspires me to continue speaking up for people like her.
Until every animal is free, I will never be silent. at Happy Hen Animal Sanctuary
