This picture has haunted me for a year since I saw it. It's a pig in a truck on her way to a slaughterhouse. Keeping in mind that they are highly intelligent, smarter than a dog and as much so as a kindergarten child, I can imagine their emotional capacity, and ability to comprehend things. It's horrifying.
Each crate has a calf in it, removed from their mother one hour after they were born. The mother had enough time to clean up the birth, lick, smell and intially bond with the calf, before they were taken away to live in boxes. Death will ensue in approximately six weeks. Until then, here they remain, unable to move, so as to make their meat 'tender.' Then they become veal steaks.
