Pigs deserve much more respect than we give them. We lock them up in factory farms, then haul them long distances without water. On top of that, we use them to symbolize greed, prejudice, etc.

The dumbest case ever+persecution of a good woman. Ridiculous. So relieved it's over. Hopefully this case as dumb as it was opened a few eyes to the horrors of factory farming/transport/slaughter. Overall the horrors of meat/bacon. thx Lone

They transport them over vast distances in freezing winters and sweltering summers for the horror of slaughter. They sometimes carry them for hundreds, if not thousands of miles, often by land and sea and they starve them and deny them water because the animals so often suffer terribly from travel sickness. and so the drivers invest nothing that may induce actual vomiting or urinating or defecating in the trucks. The only way to stop their suffering is for ALL live transportations, everywhere, to be completely and forever banned. So many 'religious' groups find pigs conveniently 'unclean' that they seem to delight in meting out top torture for these highly intelligent, sensitive and social beings. In fact, pigs are, left to themselves, very clean creatures indeed - hence, well cared for very pink piglets, courtesy of mother.
