Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
The Last Pig

This piece raises an issue inescapable of slaughtering pigs that most people are unaware of: the last pig remaining in the pen after all the other pigs have been slaughtered. The author describes how pigs deeply enjoy and need other pigs around, and that when they find themselves alone they go through a state of severe emotional turmoil, many times injuring themselves.

Please visit  What Humane Slaughterhouses Don't Solve: The Last Pig Problem and have a tissue ready.

Pigs are incredibly sensitive animals who thrive in the companion of other pigs and who form lasting relationships. What we do to them in order to raise them for food is atrocious. We should all ask ourselves: is the very transient enjoyment of the taste of their flesh so important that we are willing to pay others to cause them much pain and misery?
