Yesterday we went to visit the rice feilds in bali, I had no idea that to prepare the feilds to grow the rice these beautiful creatures are tied up and forced to walk back and forth through deep mud each day whilst pulling behind them a heavy plow with a man standing on top of it. This cow is only a one year old and the other 2. They live on average 1 and a half years before they are killed as a blood sacrifice for "god". After their torturous day they are tied up to ropes (most of them that we saw not even a metre long) with their heads stuck in feeding troughs that they cant move away from.
The third photo shows a cow that was going insane throwing his head from side to side because he couldnt move away from the trough. I untied him and made the rope as long as it could go. The other cow struggling to get out of the rope (in the second photo) didnt have a rope long enough for me to lengthen which was heart breaking. I was in tears seeing the lives of all of these beautiful gentle and kind natured creatures.
This goes to show that even if you think a food is cruelty free (such as rice) it may not be.
I wish I could let you free and I'm sorry ❀
