Oodles of grit, that is what this amazing individual has. Not only have they saved 91 lives, but they have given up so much of their own to ensure 91 individuals have the best life they possibly can.
Oodles of compassion, that is what this individual has. Not only do they spend 18 hours a day 7 days a week, caring for these 91 lives, but they do it with love and a smile on their face
Oodles of energy, that is what this individual has, feeding, clearing up, spreading bedding, coaxing, and growing trust, 120 hours a week.

This great big pig (the one on the right! ๐Ÿ˜‚) is Gandalf ๐Ÿ˜

He is huge! A few metres long and over a metre in height.

He's one of the #53pigs entire boars.

He was rescued from an illegal slaughterhouse in Wales.

Where he was starved and treated brutally.

To survive.....๐Ÿ‘‡
To survive he ate the entrails of others, cannibalised, ate bits of cars...all to stay alive! (he's in the picture below, can you see him?)

The slaughterhouse was raided by authorities, all of the animals removed. But the #53pigs were taken to a Defra Isolation Unit....๐Ÿ‘‡
They were instantly condemned, a court order was served on them.

The order was a destruction order. They were a 'public health' risk, unfit for human consumption. They were labled as diseased due to eating other beings, causing a zoonotic disease...TSE, a swine version of BSE๐Ÿ‘‡

As vegans we want to liberate non humans
But do we even think about the responsibility that entails and for how long?
Are we the type of person who pats someone else on the back says well done and wanders off to the next "good cause" without a backward glance
We don't believe our image is more important to us than the non humans we have encouraged others to rescue or have rescued ourselves
Or that EGO is our driving force not compassion?
As vegans, could we abandon anyone, human or non, who needed our help, most especially someone we had encouraged in a venture.
Nor should we talk about people, make up half truths and lies to benefit ourselves to the detriment of others

A brave lady called Sasha rescued 53 pigs from an illegal slaughter house in Wales.

These rescued pigs now number 91 because some have had babies.

But they can all live out their lives without fear of harm because of Sasha
Sasha has done the hard work. We now need to try to support her by paying to feed them as #Vegans we must be prepared to do this if we want to rescue them. Please read their story then become a #Pigoneerโ€ฆ
It costs less than a coffee per month, as vegans, committed to ending non human abuse, don't we have a responsibility to help with ongoing care? I think we do and this is a fantastic way of doing that
Many of us coming together to make it a small burden on each of us

STOP PRESS!! Some rare original lyrics & images have been found. ๐Ÿ“ข

An exclusive from @kirthurgan

Imagine there's no slaughter house
No piggies have to die
No gas chamber below us
Above us only skyโ€ฆ
Imagine all the piggies
Living for today
Imagine there's no animal farm
No reason to do harm ๐Ÿท๐Ÿทโ€ฆ
No selfish humans to die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the earthlings
Living life in peaceโ€ฆ

Squidgy is a #slaughterhouse survivor.

He was terrified of human contact. He'd run, screaming in anticipation of pain if I got too close.

He is a #victim, we must support the #victims of animal agriculture.

We took 91 abused pigs from this cruelty case.

Become a #pigoneer ๐Ÿท
Squidgy lived here ๐Ÿ‘‡

He walked amongst the dead, eating what he could find to survive.

His friends and family violently slaughtered in front of him.

But now he and the other 90 pigs are safe.

To keep him safe we need you! We need you and your friends to become #pigoneers!
To become a #pigoneer is simple and a small gesture of ยฃ2.50 per month. Many #pigoneers can feed this whole herd of what were abused pigs. Every pig in the image above, 91 in total is safe here @BTWsanctuary

Join today to keep their future safe -โ€ฆ

A thread for vegans. Please read.

What is her life worth?

What if we could rescue her and all the others trapped alongside her?

We fight every day telling others to #govegan
But what will this mean for the animals trapped in this system?

We say to the carnists... They will all go to sanctuaries in vegan world.

Do we think about how that will work?
After being rescued.

Do you think about what each individual has witnessed?

The PTSDs they experienced?

The cost of feeding each one?

Or do you scroll by and think, they are safe now without thought?

Can I ask if you can think about these questions?

Morning! it's Snouty Saturday! ๐Ÿฝ

One of the #53pigs having a lazy morning in his special piggy barn.

He's safe, loved, warm and cosy which is simply what we all need and want. No matter what species we are.

This little guy was just a piglet when ๐Ÿ‘‡โ€ฆ
he was seized from the illegal slaughterhouse at Bramble Hall Farm.

He then spent the first 9 months of his life in a Defra Isolation Unit under a court disease destruction order.

But after a legal battle he was allowed to come and live here at the sanctuary along with ๐Ÿ‘‡
all the other #53pigs and #53piglets under a special disease restriction license.

We have nearly 100 pigs at the sanctuary. And like many we have had a very difficult year.

Please help us to create a safe, reliable feed fund to help pay the ยฃ1000 per week pig feed costs ๐Ÿ‘‡

This is 30 of the #53pigs. These pigs are so incredibly lucky! They have made it through the following challenges on their lives -
๐Ÿ–Starvation in an illegal slaughterhouse
๐Ÿ–Avoiding slaughter in a illegal slaughterhouse
๐Ÿ–Defra Disease Destruction Order
๐Ÿ–Too aggressive ๐Ÿ‘‡
๐Ÿ– Too aggressive, unsafe to live
๐Ÿ– In agreement with Defra, pigs must not be moved again.
๐Ÿ– Land & facility we use withdrawn and our notice given.
๐Ÿ– A risk Defra would insist on slaughter rather than allowing us to relocate them.
๐Ÿ– The only option acceptable to Defra is ๐Ÿ‘‡
๐Ÿ– for them to be relocated to our own land. But we have only a little land & no facilities.
๐Ÿ– Urgent large scale fencing, temporary set up & start of ground works & barn build!
๐Ÿท Defra sign off temporary set up! The pigs come home to the sanctuaries own land! ๐Ÿ’–
๐Ÿ– Boars ๐Ÿ‘‡

There's no requirement that we consume the products of animal suffering in order to meet our nutritional needs

Get creative

You can do this

#BeVegan #Justice ๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ
When you 1st open your eyes to the perspective of the victims you're shocked to learn how many products contribute to animal suffering

But there are alternatives to everything you're used to, because animals don't deserve to be commodified

They deserve compassion

Make plant based versions of the meals you're used to without the sentient victims โœŒ๐Ÿผ
