Several days ago I attended a regional fair and festival. Like most such events, livestock was part of the event. As I was leaving I noticed four animals housed separately from the rest. There was a steer, a goat, a sheep and a pig. The banner above read “Grand Champion Market Animals.” I snapped a photo of each but the meaning did not register at the time. It was not until later when I was editing the photos for a story did I realize the significance.
The photo above is the picture of the “winning” pig. I’m guessing as I write this he is sitting on someone’s plate as bacon or carnitas or loin roast. I can only hope each of these four animals met their fate from a butcher with mercy and not one that subscribes to the methods of our factory slaughterhouses. Look into this pig’s eyes. He knows the fate that awaits him.
