Rescued From a Horrific Backyard Butcher, Mama Pig and Her Babies Get a Second Chance at Life! (VIDEO) | One Green Planet

Life or Lunch?

An enormous farm animal rescue operation was recently carried out to save over 200 animals who were living in horrific conditions in a backyard slaughter facility located in New York state.
