Nonhuman animals are scared when prodded down narrow chutes to meet their brutal death in slaughterhouses. They try to turn around, but can’t. They are terrified hearing the cries of those before them. Some actually run for their lives! Some are in too pitiful a condition to be able to run. Pigs scream. Some look their killer in the eyes questioning “why are you doing this to me?” according to ex-slaughterhouse workers who (because of the experience) chose to become vegan.
