Veal Calf by flash-gordonette Veal Calf by flash-gordonette
Did you know that male dairy calves are removed from their mothers hours after birth?
Either they are killed straight away or they are confined in a tiny crate for 6 - 12 month before being slaughtered for veal.

I used to listen to a lot of Marilyn Manson in my youth, the lyrics I have used in this picture were taken from the song "Speed of Pain". I can't listen to this piece without thinking of all the poor baby boys that are tortured so adults can drink their milk.

Those lyrics are very powerful...and fitting. Beautiful art with a message! I'm glad to see dairy is on the decline, hopefully the cruel industry will be a thing of the past before long.

Fingers crossed! There's really no need for it with so many other healthy alternatives on the market! x

Wow, those lyrics take on a whole new sad meaning. The good news is dairy is down 33% in the US and plant milks are taking up more and more shelf space in the dairy sections.
