The Tale of Five Little Pigs

Update: My comments mention that if people interacted closely with the animals destined for human food, these people would probably realize that farmed animals have feelings. However, it seems obvious that people involved in the raising of farmed animals choose to ignore this fact and instead participate in their abuse.

The fate of five little pigs that fell off a livestock truck on Interstate 540 (North Carolina) about 6 weeks ago will be decided by the highest bidder at public auction on May 27. The story of these piglets has been followed closely by animal advocates, the pork industry and the public at large. The pigs are currently being cared for at Durham shelter where they are enjoying a life free of suffering. "They have personality. They have feelings. They're fun to watch" said Shafonda Price, shelter manager for the Animal Protection Society of Durham, and added "We haven't been able to look at meat the same way."

Most people are far removed from the way their food is produced and don't think twice about its origins or the suffering it might have involved. I believe that if people had the chance to interact with farmed animals and realize that they, too, have feelings, most people would reject eating them or their products. It is our privilege and responsibility as stewards of God's animals to do our best to inform and educate people about the inherent cruelty of animal agriculture.
