“I think it is nice seeing animals that are mostly thought of as food products showing that they do have personalities and such. We are so conditioned to seeing these guys in pens waiting to be butchered and you forget that they are not that different from your dog or any other 4 legged mammal.”
If you eat meat, boycott factory farms. It’s better for you, too.
