"Sympathy at Slaughter"

My Most Heartfelt Moment

A moment I will never forget.

This pig came right up to me and pressed his snout outside the grate. I leaned in slightly not to scare her and she didn't back away. 

We got closer and closer until our noses finally met. 

I'll forever remember the feeling of her wet snout pressed against my own tear covered nose.

Our similarities in this photo bring me to tears. 

A desperate plea for help from both sides of that metal grate. The pig's plea for freedom, my own plea for her deliverance.
