We can’t thank Santuario Compasión Animal enough for sharing this ridiculously adorable video from Yo Animal! It shows a piglet playing ferociously with his mama’s tail without a care in the world. This sweet little pig is having so much fun, there’s no way it won’t bring a smile to your face! The reason is that there is no denying the similarity the piglet has to our own children. Sadly, for a pig, being able to enjoy life — especially with your mother by your side, is a rarity in today’s society.
As you can clearly see from the video, pigs are not as different from us or our pets at home as the factory farming industry would have us think. The reality is that they feel joy, pain, fear, and heartbreak the same as you and I do. Factory farmed pigs are often beaten, kicked, and stabbed only to then be sentenced to a horrific death. The worst part is that all of this is for the simple and unnecessary pleasure it brings to people’s dinner plates. It doesn’t have to be this way, though. If we all started to see these animals as someones instead of somethings, the world would be a much more compassionate place!
Please share this video to help open eyes and hearts to what pigs are really like, not what the factory farming industry wants us to believe.
