There’s no question that farmed animals, like all other sentient beings, want to live. We’ve reported on countless accounts of animals escaping from slaughterhouses or jumping from transport trucks.
This week we came across this devastating story from China about a pig who escaped a farm and made her way to a Buddhist temple.
What makes this story unique is that the pig knelt down and appeared to pray in front of the temple. This sparked a flurry on Chinese social media of people saying the pig was on a pilgrimage. In reality, this poor animal was probably exhausted from running for her life.
But do you know what happened next when this poor pig captured again by her owner, will bring tears in your eyes.
