Saturday Night Social: Hosted By the Happiest Pig

Happy Liberation Day to this pig! The barn doors are open, the birds are chirping, and this sow and her piglets are feeling the wind flapping through their ears for the first time. Watch the full video on loop and take in the simple joys of running and eating and pooping and running and itching your butt and checking to see what fun stuff is in the dirt.

This comes from Viva!, a UK-based vegan charity, and the animal sanctuary Dean Farm Trust. They provide us with plenty of footage of rolling in hay, belly rubs from humans, and being wrapped in enormous towels, an activity that humans and pigs can both enjoy. It is a liberty which I will appreciate more, thanks to this image.


Happy Saturday!
