My friend is apart of Animal Liberation Australia and last night they did a chicken rescue. A chicken rescue is when members of the group go to farms at night and rescue sick and abused chickens, they also get footage to expose the cruelty to the public and hopefully make a change. Last night, they rescued 6 chickens from a farm intended for KFC. The chickens, still so young at only 4 weeks old - were so overgrown and heavy due to overfeeding and being pumped full of steroids.
Unfortunately these chickens won’t survive more than a few days because they are bred to die. “So we just make some cosy boxes with hay for them and plenty of food and water, at least making their last days alive peaceful.”
Last night, my friend saved six innocent lives from slaughter. Every activist makes a difference, six lives saved from slaughter is better than none. Animals are not machines, animals have rights. 🐥🐣
“A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral.” - Leo Tolstoy 🍃🌿🌳#vegan #animalrights
