Soul Crushing! Viral Video Shows Activist Singing Lullaby to Pig on Way to Slaughter

A crushing viral video posted by Boxtel Pig Save shows a compassionate animal rights activist singing a lullaby to a pig on a transport truck en route to a slaughterhouse.

In the video you can see the activist gently stroking the exhausted and scared animal while she sings.

The heart-wrenching video garnered comments from those who watched. One person wrote, “Crying here—just like a baby.” Another commenter said, “This darling knows and responds to touch and love—and to think this baby will just be tortured and all for someone to have bacon—so so terribly sad.”

Sadly, millions of farmed animals are transported each day from farms to slaughterhouses. These journeys can take several days, which means that animals are trapped for extended periods in overcrowded, filthy trucks.

Many times, factory-farmed animals see the sun only on the transport truck to slaughter.

During the trip, animals are subjected to extremes of temperature and weather, enduring scorching heat or freezing cold. And as if this weren’t terrible enough, these animals are often forced to go days without food, water, or rest. Many animals arrive at slaughterhouses injured, sick, or dead.

Multiple Mercy For Animals investigations have documented firsthand the cruel conditions farmed animals endure in transport.

An investigation of Western Hog Exchange in Alberta, for instance, showed frightened animals being transported hundreds of kilometers in sweltering heat, suffering from heat stress and dehydration. Workers repeatedly used electric prods to shock “downed pigs.


In all the ways that matter, farmed animals are like dogs, yet we relegate them to a life of intense and unrelenting cruelty. The fact is, if we treated just one dog the way the meat industry treats billions of animals, we’d be behind bars for animal abuse.
