This is story of a pig farmer, who gave up his family business and decided to rear the pigs as his children, and turned their diet to vegetarian. Check it out.
I should say this is inspirational rather than unbelievable. To be a full vegetarian is already very difficult, but he changed his livelihood from selling pigs to saving pigs, and he earns much lesser than when he was selling pigs. He must really strongly believe in saving the lives of animals to be able to face his family’s objections and endure the weird looks from the people around him. Really peifu this guy for his persistence in promoting vegetarianism by being the spokesman for animals. He deserves my thumbs-up!
That is so true. And to treat these pigs as his children… that compassion is really at the next level. There is a follow-up video on how he went around to collect vegan food for his pigs. Can see it is really not easy.
One of his pigs died because he didn’t filter the waste food properly before processing it, and it contained some glass fragments. Watch it here if keen.
