@Regranned from @crisveganfit - #Metoo ... and if you have also posted a caption or Facebook status saying the same but drink cow milk ... guess what. You are paying for the rape of hundreds of thousands of these animals. In order to produce milk, cows and other animals used for dairy production must be impregnated each year because their milk production stops at around the time their calves would naturally stop nursing.
To maximize the amount of milk available for human consumption, babies are typically taken away from their mothers within 24 hours of birth, causing profound distress to both the mother and her newborn. Mother cows bellow and call to their babies for days following the separation. Some of the babies are sent directly to the slaughterhouse, to veal farms, or to feedlots; the rest become dairy cows like their mothers. Over the years, the term “rape rack” has gradually disappeared from the dairy industry’s vernacular. It used to be common parlance in dairy farming. Today, farmers are far more savvy about terminology—as are other industries that use animals. As a result, that term has vanished from the farmers’ vocabulary in the same way that ‘iron maidens’ and ‘restraint chairs’ have been renamed ‘sow stalls’ and ‘gentling devices.’ The industry now prefers to use euphemisms such as ‘breeding boxes’ to describe the boxes or chutes where female cows are restrained while a worker forcibly inseminates them.... I don’t know how you expect the men of our species to stop raping us when most of the human race are turning a blind eye to the rape of millions of animals. The most innocent... the ones with no voice at all.... you can’t even show compassion to the most vulnerable. #dairyIsRape - #regrann

This beautiful blue eyed, six month old baby was killed minutes after this photo was taken as we held vigil at the gates of a slaughterhouse in Iowa. Please read the beautiful testimony below

Today, I attended my very first vigil with @thesavemovement. We stood outside a pig slaughterhouse and held signs, and beared witness to truckload after truckload of pigs that were killed minutes after we saw them. They arrived beaten, bruised, and bloody. I openly wept many times, just from seeing their bodies after transport
I listened to them scream as they died in gas chambers for 3 hours. I looked in windows and saw giant hooks with pieces of their bodies, going along a converter belt. I lifted a flap in a fence and saw countless barrels of blood, their innards, and more I will spare you from right now
This place is literally hell on earth. The stench alone made me sick, I’ve never been so close to so much blood and death
I will never forget today, it has fueled my activism and changed me forever. Although this was one of the toughest, most heartbreaking days of my life, I will not stop attending these vigils. We have to stop these horrific practices, we have to wake people up
The slaughterhouse we visited is in Des Moines, I’ve lived 20 minutes away from it almost my entire life and have smelled it many times in the distance, without knowing what it was. Our state has more pig slaughterhouses than any other. It’s been so normalized to us all— we’ve truly been brainwashed
Does your diet contribute to this horror? Please consider how meat and animal products make it to your plate. I promise your stomach will churn and your heart will break when you learn the full truth. The awesome part of all of this is that you can stop contributing to this cruelty today, right now! I’m 100% always willing to chat with you- from a completely nonjudgmental, loving place. I was not vegan just a few years ago
I will be posting more photos and videos in the coming days, when I’ve found the strength. Thank you to all who stood beside me today. We won’t stop until this hell ends. ✊🏼 Support @desmoine
😢@Regranned from @worldanimalnews - Sadly, after the initial news that the annual bear hunt in #NewJersey began with a substantial decrease in deaths on the first day, the tally of innocent animals that have been hunted has risen to 241.-
While the number is far lower than the 562 killed during last year’s hunt, animal rights advocates remain outraged at the barbaric and inhumane “sport.” 😡😓😡 -

@Regranned from @moby - I had the honor of attending an @laanimalsave vigil last night, to give water and a moment of kindness to pigs before they're led to slaughter. It's unspeakably powerful, and I highly recommend attending if you're able to. But it also reminded me that there is absolutely no place for pettiness and in-fighting in the #animalrights movement. We work for the animals, not our egos. Our work is too important to be compromised by gossip, slander, malice, or in-fighting. The animals need us and our unity, not our egos. #animalrights#animalliberation picture @chefitophoto - #regrann
🛇Sorry for the graphic images but this needs to be stopped. 🛇The dolphin hunt in Taiji Japan is real and happening now. Please #repost & #follow @dolphin_project and @bluecovedays and watch #THECOVE 🐬😢 we can stop this. Keep spreading awareness for these dolphins. I have hope it will end soon. Places like #miamiseaquarium use the dolphins captured here so if you buy a ticket you are paying for this. Also follow @alejandro_ariel_dintino organizer and activist for Lolita and the animals in prison at the seaquarium. Protest every Sunday 12-2pm in front of the Miami Seaprison. #FREELOLITA#STOPTAIJI#BOYCOTTMIAMISEAQUARIUM#STOPDOLPHINHUNT#TAIJI#DOLPHINS @Regranned from @deyanirapaz.vegan - Ayer 1 de septiembre empezó la matanza anual de delfines. Hasta el 1 de marzo, miles de delfines sufrirán del pánico y dolor jamás esperado. Con la desgracia de nacer con una sonrisa, los delfines siguen siendo explotados y llevados lejos de sus hábitats naturales para convertirse en entretenimiento de los humanos y hasta en alimento en el caso de los japoneses. Ayer, estuvimos frente a la embajada de Japón en Brickell, Miami, educando a los espectadores y gritándole a la embajada que como ciudadanos del mundo estamos en contra de las atrocidades que este gobierno ignora. *** Y HOY, Te quiero invitar una vez más a que alces tu voz por aquellos que no se pueden defender. Los animales en cautiverio sufren, emocional y físicamente, está comprobado en las diferentes especies. Y en el caso de los delfines, por cada delfín que ves en un acuario, 17mil murieron. Hay sangre detrás de esa dulce sonrisa! Desliza las fotos hacia la izquierda y mira lo qué pasa cada vez que un delfín es capturado para entretenerte a ti, para que puedas tomarte fotos y nadar con el!... en serio vale la pena?... yo llamo a eso egoísmo.
BUSCA EL DOCUMENTAL, GANADOR DE OSCAR "THE COVE" no te vas a arrepentir. .

Interesting encounter at the #Vegan info table today with a #SlaughterhouseWorker who approached the stall.
When asked what it was like working in an #Abattoir he had such a look of #Sadness on his face and said it was “a very tough job.” He said the #Animals know exactly what’s happening as soon as they arrive and that’s it’s “terrible what we are doing to them.” He has worked in the Kildare slaughterhouse for 23 years and suffers with #Depression .
He admitted that the #BoltGun doesn’t always render the animals #unconscious and that sometimes when the #Cattle are shackled and hoisted upside down they can fall down again “slowing down” the production line.
He said the animals go down a chute and there’s a machine that clamps around their heads to try to keep them still while they are getting the bolt gun through their skull.
The oddest part was that he ended up buying 4 badges off us. One which said “#JusticeForAll ,” two that said “ #NotYourMomNotYourMilk ,” and the final one he bought said “ #MeatIsMurder .” I asked him if he thought that statement was true, he said it was. - #regrann - #regrann

Miami model caught stomping on her dog in an elevator. The video footage is so horrible I was crying and I'm so glad she is locked up!!! Shame on her and I hope she gets the worst treatment after this. Sad excuse for a human. Beauty can only go so far and is only skin deep with some. This is proof. #repost @ohkathy_____ @Regranned from @jklamlam - PLEASE SHARE THIS UGLY C
This is a VERY, VERY BAD person!! Mommy & I could not watch the video, but we read the article and want to SHARE this so people far & wide know what a terrible thing this person did! Please SHARE!!! #animalsbuser#keevonnacantewilson#keevonnawilson#badperson#miami#miamimodel#animalcruelty
