Meet Lucas! He was just a piglet when he jumped off a transport truck to save his own life from the horrific meat industry. This brave baby was born into a life that was no life at all and decided to take control and change his fate.

“When sweet baby Lucas jumped from the transport truck he really got some intense road rash, on top of his wounds from his castration & tail docking,” said the rescue in an update. It’s hard to imagine leaping from a vehicle going 50 plus mph, however, despite his injuries and complications, he is in great spirits and is so lucky and grateful for his escape.

“There is only one way to make this stop. Humans have to stop the demand for these animals. We have to stop eating them. Only then will piglets like Lucas’ siblings be spared their cruel fate. Support sanctuaries, not slaughterhouses. And take a stand,” said Kanda Farm Sanctuary.

Piglets born into the cycle of the meat industry have the most unpleasant existences. They are separated from their parents at an early age, then forcibly fattened up and slaughtered. This is no life for such a beautiful, intelligent, loving animal.
