A farmer has accused a crew of vegans of crushing two piglets to death after they caused a stampede in their efforts to cuddle the newborn pigs.

200 vegans from the group “Meat the Victims” turned up to this lady’s farm in Lincolnshire to protest against pork.
However in their excitement to raise awareness about the “cruelty” of pig farming, they caused the pigs and piglets to freak out and start a stampede, inadvertently causing the death of two piglets.
Farmer Sylvia Hook says the vegans terrified her family and caused damage to their farm:
About 50 of them all piled into a farrowing house, immediately the sows are jumping up and down.
It’s caused the death of two young piglets through being squashed and two other piglets I’ve had to be taken away to get up and running again.
The sows were very stressed initially with all the noise and the commotion, jumping up and down, squashing piglets, causing general havoc.
They were picking piglets up, cuddling them – there was a lot of screaming going on. Piglets don’t want to be cuddled. Then unfortunately, they were putting the piglets back in the wrong pens.
Because it was such a long period of time we were not able to fulfil our caring duties to the animals. We could not get in to feed them as our barrow is the width of the passage.

Think about where you’re sat right now, reading this. Now imagine there are prison bars around you. You can’t move from where you are right now. You can’t even turn around. You’re trapped. This is your life now. There’s no escape. This is what we do. This is what we do for bacon. Sometimes there are no words. I’m so sorry.

Obviously there is an issue with the conditions under which some animals are kept, so this isn’t about calling vegan protesters idiots – just this particular group of vegan protesters.
I mean if these people love animals so much how could they not know that piglets hate to be cuddled? They don’t want your grubby human hands on them. And they definitely don’t want to be trampled on and killed in a piggie stampede while you’re yelling into megaphones and trying to pick them up and cuddle them.
It’s people like this who give a bad name to vegans in general. That’s why you get 14-year-old boys punching vegans in the face and force-feeding them bacon.
