Most people don’t realize it, but pigs wallow in mud to keep cool. These sensitive animals don’t have sweat glands like humans, and they’re also prone to sunburn. One Dutch farmer, Erik Stegink, decided to give his pigs a state-of-the-art wallowing experience by installing a bright yellow water slide leading into his farm’s mud pit. The slide isn’t entirely unprecedented; as one Redditor noted, one Chinese pig farm encourages pigs to dive into water. Now, we just need to see a video of these pigs on the yellow slide.
I am not a vegetarian but I want farm animals to live in the open air and experience life. Corporate farms should be illegal.
