Today was extremely taxing. Mentally and emotionally, I am exhausted.
After a long battle with sickness and injury Daisy has passed away. For those of you who don’t know her, she was one of the residents at @maridansmenagerie
A survivor of the dairy industry, she spent the first 10 years of her life abused for her reproductive system. Being inseminated, giving birth, having her children stolen from her in a repetitive cycle of suffering.
She came from an “organic, biodynamic dairy” the supposed gold standard of dairies. When we rescued her however she was terribly sick, malnourished and broken not only physically but emotionally too.
A living, thinking, feeling, sentient being reduced to being no more than a machine for a decade, the only comfort I get is that she had the opportunity to raise Doug and spend 9 months living free from exploitation being cared for by Marianne and Dan.
If you consume dairy, if you support these industries I urge you to consider the victims of your choices. Consider the individuals you subject to a lifetime of abuse. It's 2018, drink plant milk instead
She was more than a machine
She was more then an object
She was more then a glass of milk
She was a mother
She was a friend
But now she is gone.
Rest in peace, no one can hurt you anymore.
Today's cube of truth just happened to be outside a market stall selling Fur.
After approaching and explaining how cruel this industry is and how shameful it is, not only to be selling the fur of animals but there was no sign to say what it is, so people are buying unknowingly. They were even mixed in with acrylic pom hats alike, which can be a good thing because it enables some people to work it out for themselves that it's real, but not everyone thinks outside the box. Not everyone cares... This is not OK, we're back tracking, fur was shamed and faded out of UK shops and this cruelty has rapidly reared its ugly head back into our shops and markets, we will not stop this by being quiet, we have to let them know it is not acceptable.
Today after talking to the owner of the stall (as seen in photos) we ended our discussion in him giving us some of the poms to donate to an animal shelter (who use it for orphaned baby animals), he packed the rest away and agreed he'd no longer sell real fur on his stall and would return to seller (gutted he didn't donate the lot 🙄) If more of us spoke up we can turn this around before it becomes as socially acceptable as leather, seude, wool etc... We have a big enough battle with those cruel industries, we can not allow this. (If anybody sees this back in comercial road market or anywhere surrounding please make me aware).
Conversations can make a big difference. That’s why I post so much about veganism. And when I can, I talk about it in real life.
If you have the possibility to do it, spread the message! Talk about all those beautiful animals that we kill everyday. About the dairy industry where they kill, rape, steal babies. About fur, eggs, fishes, etc. ... And don’t forget to tell people that there is a way to live without hurting anyone ✌🏽🌱
