cowf1-thumb-210x192In a tragic turn of events, a trailer transporting cows lost control on California’s Interstate 80.

Veering off the road and crashing into a guardrail, the trailer was pierced by metal from the rail, injuring and killing several animals. Others were thrown onto the freeway and at least one cow was hit by a passing vehicle.

This heartbreaking accident spotlights the danger farmed animals are in during transport. It’s no surprise that an industry that needlessly slaughters and systematically abuses animals also leaves them with no protections on the open road.

To take a stand against this and other cruelties experienced by farmed animals, visit and consider transitioning to a humane vegan diet.
