Johnstown, Pennsylvania. “In honor of a pig that stood, bled and cried for nearly 20 minutes after being shot eight times in the head at the Alex Froehlich Packing Company, PETA plans to place a billboard next to the slaughterhouse stating who is to blame for its torment. and long-term death: everyone who has not yet become a vegan.
“This crying pig went through explosion after headshot to get on someone’s plate,” says PETA executive vice president Tracy Reiman. “The PETA billboard will enable people to go vegan and fight slaughterhouse violence with kindness while eating.”
According to federal documents, the pig was shot four times by the worker and the owner of the slaughterhouse shot it again before it fell. They pulled her out of the stun gun she was in, but she got up and kept screaming, so they made her come back and fired four more times, finally losing consciousness.
PETA notes that unsuccessful slaughterhouses are frequent, including in Cambria County, where nearby Pudliner Packing has been named for numerous egregious violations of humane treatment that have not been prosecuted by the authorities, prompting PETA to reach out to consumers directly. Pigs, cows, sheep, chickens and other animals feel pain and fear and value their lives, just like humans, and the best way to prevent them from getting hurt, hurt, cut and bleeding in slaughterhouses is not to eat them.
PETA, whose motto is in part that “the animals are not ours to eat,” is opposed to arrogance, a worldview focused on human excellence. For more information please visit PETA.org or subscribe to the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram…
