There is no excuse for this. They were all babies—less than 6 months old. It doesn’t have to be this way.
On Wednesday October 5, 2016, a truck full of pigs overturned in front of Fearmans Pork in Burlington, Ontario. Pigs were trapped inside, screaming. Some escaped and wandered the streets, outside for the first time in their life.
Those able to move on their own were walked through the parking lot of the slaughterhouse to their death. Injured pigs were not “fit” to be “processed”.
They waited in the grass for hours. Activists begged to give them sanctuary—they had homes waiting for them. Fearmans refused to show mercy and executed them, trying to hide their barbarity with flimsy cardboard.
This is not an isolated incident of rare cruelty. This is a rare incident of systematic cruelty being thrust into the open.
YOU can change this.
There is no excuse
