My incredible friend Amanda Fortino snapped this shot today at Farm Sanctuary, and I couldn’t help but share. This pig and cow were bred to end up on someone’s plate or body, but fortunately were rescued by the heroic Farm Sanctuary team. Billions of others just like them are massacred annually to satisfy human greed and selfishness.
These magnificent animals express tenderness and curiosity just like our beloved cats & dogs. They are intelligent, social, and just as capable of fear, loneliness, and misery as any other being.
