"Sympathy at Slaughter"

Slaughter-Truck Crash and Reactions

A horrifying scene this morning when a truck carrying 150 pigs over-turned outside Fearman's Pork Inc. slaughterhouse in Burlington, Ontario. I could feel my heart pounding as I approached what was happening. I've never heard pigs scream like this before.

Activists pleaded for some pigs to be released to a nearby sanctuary as the firemen gently removed a portion of the slaughter-truck grate.
"Ready?" one shouts as they are about to expose on of the most heartbreaking events.

Battered, bruised, and bleeding; pigs who survived the accident stumbled out one by one. "Downed" pigs were stunned and carried out by forklift.

My heart sank watching these pigs stumble around the parking lot; forcefully marching onward to the kill floor. Pigs who suffered this severe traffic accident were detained and denied freedom being offered by nearby farm sanctuaries.

Words can't capture what it was like to bear this experience this morning. As hard as it was for me and as hard as it is for you to watch; Can you imagine what it was like to be them?
