190 pigs were trapped and the lorry driver was injured reported officers who responded to an early morning call that a livestock transporter truck had overturned, according to the Avon and Somerset Constabulary.

Yet officials, in an attempt to shield the public from the horrors of factory farming, made assurances that a vet had come to the scene and were "consulted to ensure the animals' welfare at all times".

The police statement proceeded to state that "sadly some of the animals have died". The pigs that survived the crash, were then "transferred to another transporter" to continue their journey to the slaughterhouse.

This shows a clear disconnect in society. That it was "sad" that some pigs were killed in the accident, but there was no compassion for the more than hundred sentient pigs that survived only to be loaded on another truck to resume their journey to be brutally slaughtered for their flesh.

Pigs are highly intelligent, social animals that want to live. Why not choose this event, to make the connection between the meat on your plate and the animals that it comes from and go vegan.
