TV and movie star Steve-O narrates this powerful short video about some of the fortunate individual animals rescued by Farm Sanctuary and also reveals the life of the less fortunate animals that are born into modern farming in the US today. The contrast is striking. These highly social and sensitive individuals will show you what rich and complex lives they are capable of living when they are allowed to live out their lives on a sanctuary. And in contrast, the video depicts the lives of the vast majority of animals, who, by no choice of their own, were born into a world of commercial farming that views and treats them as commodities. These animals are subjected to a short life of great physical and psychological suffering until they reach “market weight.” And then they are trucked off to slaughterhouses where they will meet their end at just a fraction of their natural lifespan. What Came Before compels us all to rethink what’s on our plate. How can you help? Watch this video. Share this video. And act on what you learn.
