More transport tragedies

Pigs are sentient creatures that endure, at the hands of humans, unimaginable pain and suffering. God promises that He will redeem His whole creation from every injustice and we are called to honor and to be good stewards of it, not tyrants over it.

As Christians, we grieve when such exploitation is accepted, hidden from society, legal, and defended by the industry. As Christians, we rejoice when someone steps up and defends the victims and denounces cruel practices. The following news will make us grieve since, in addition to the cruelty involved in raising pigs for food, the neglect they suffer during transport is inexcusable and completely unnecessary.

On June 29 about 150 pigs died in Texas after having been left for 2 days in the truck where they had been transported. This incident is being pursed by the police on animal cruelty charges.
