Animal rights and welfare activists have been ramping up efforts to make the world aware of the often-brutal processes involved in killing animals.
One vegan protestor has made a ‘powerful’ video by dressing up in a cow onesie and walking to an Aussie supermarket.
The woman slowly walked through the Perth grocer until she arrived at the meat section, dropped to her knees and seemingly mourned the deaths of the animals that went into some of the products.
She held a packet of sausages, paused as if she was thinking of every chicken, pig or cow that had to die in order to produce the meat, then bowed her head, before she put it back on the shelf.
The protestor then lies on the ground and holds up a placard that reads: “You’ve been lied to. YouTube Dominion.”
The documentary ‘highlights the inherent cruelty of the industry, speciesism. So that’s all we’re trying to project’, according to one activist.
Dominion was released last year and included secret camera and drone footage of farm practices that are pretty confronting to watch.
