Livestock Truck Catastrophes Highlight The Need For Reform

An alarming number of farm animals die regularly in catastrophic highway accidents when the trucks hauling huge loads of these animals overturn. In the past week, the media reported on at least two such incidents, each of which resulted in massive mortality and suffering for the animals involved. Despite this industry-wide problem, neither the U.S. Department of Agriculture nor the agribusiness industry has adequately addressed the issue. As a result, farm animals are subjected to yet another level of unnecessary suffering. Farm Sanctuary is urging the USDA to establish a protocol to prevent these accidents from happening in the first place and to respond to these accidents when they happen in a way that will minimize animal suffering.

Nightmare Over For Goats Rescued In New York Cruelty Case

Nobody knows how long they stood inside the transport trailer, or what condition they were in when they entered. What we do know is how they looked when they emerged. Emaciated. Lice-ridden.

In sum, 43 goats were found dead. Now rehabilitated and nursed back to health, these girls call our New York Shelter home—and are ready to make the most of their second chance at life. Read more.

Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization. Since incorporating in 1986, we have worked to expose and stop cruel practices of the “food animal” industry through research and investigations, legal and legislative actions, public awareness projects, youth education, and direct rescue and refuge efforts. Our shelters in Watkins Glen, NY and Orland, CA provide lifelong care for hundreds of rescued animals, who have become ambassadors for farm animals everywhere by educating visitors about the realities of factory farming.
