" Animal abuse is a wretched, disgusting thing.
Abusers of any living creature are wretched, disgusting people.
Just because it isn’t human doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt.
Just because it isn’t human doesn’t justify using it as a toy, or object of abuse.
Open your eyes.”
She’s such a great artist and a wonderful person. I highly recommend checking out the rest of her gallery.
These are animals that will never see the light of day.
These are animals that will never breath fresh air.
These are animals that are de-beaked without anesthesia within their first few minutes of life.
These are animals that will be kept in cramped cages until they the day they die.
These are animals that may be brutally beaten or gassed to death if their egg-production slows.
These are animals that will be boiled alive, their throats sliced while still conscious.
These are animals that can feel pain like any other.
It is not the act of killing and eating animals that is the injustice. It is the way these animals are kept and killed. The cruelty is disgusting.
I am not asking you to become a vegetarian. I’m not one myself. All I’m asking you to do is be aware of where your food comes from.
Our chickens need a chance to live before they are killed. Living in damp, disgusting cages, so cramped that they can’t even stand properly is not living.
They need to be allowed to run, experience life, and live healthily until the day they are killed humanely, and eaten.
Spread the message. Buy free-range chickens and turkeys if you can, although even free-range does not always mean they are treated humanely.
They may not be furry with for legs, but they are just as conscious, curious, and deserving of an abuse-free life as your pet cats and dogs.
This is my contribution to the Gaia Vim Naturae charity book to help Colombia’s flood disaster.
Many great artists are part of this project organized by Leaglem, and their works are absolutely amazing! You can take a look at the some of the previews and order the charity book *here* and of course all profits will be donated to help Colombians in need.
Thank you! <3
If you do not believe that this is one of the best self-discovery stories then you need to re-evaluate how you perceive things.
