I drove past a truck of cows being transported a good 6 hours away (the name of the city was on the side of the truck), I could see they were super cramped and covered in their own poop in a metal truck that was probably at least 110° inside. The trucks pull over to re fuel, not water breaks. But who cares right? Bacon is awesome.
A large tank is not the same as the ocean. Wild animals do not exist so people can look at them, ya it’s cool to see a whale up close, but it’s sad and lives a shitty life and that does not make the cuteness worth it.
