Yvonne, the cow who escaped slaughter and has been on the run since on May 24th, is finally free to roam.
Hunters who’ve exhaustively searched for the 6-year old cow for months have finally called off the search. Her trackers declared the little cow “as nimble as a weasel.” The shoot-to-kill mission has been cancelled and no more rewards for her capture are available.
Yvonne defied the odds by escaping and again by evading capture and is now free to roam the German countryside. May she live a long and happy life.
you go girl!
Eighty percent of grain grown in the U.S. and about half the fish hauled in are wasted to grow billions of animals big and fat enough to be profitably slaughtered, or to produce dairy products and eggs at the high levels demanded by consumers. And over ninety percent of the protein in this grain turns into the methane, ammonia, urea, and manure that pollutes our air and water. A conservative estimate is that the amount of land, grain, water, petroleum, and pollution required to feed one of us the Standard American Diet could feed fifteen of us eating a plant-based diet.
Today is World Farm Animals Day. Today we mourn and remember the more than 55 billion animals slaughtered every year for food production. Today we ask you to live vegan and stop contributing to this suffering.
