Joaquin Phoenix visited a slaughterhouse in Los Angeles and helped liberate a mother cow and her baby calf following his rambling Oscars speech that touched on the dairy industry and humans’ treatment of cows.

The 45-year-old actor recently took a trip to Manning Beef in Pico Rivera, California, and had a sit-down chat with the President and CEO of the company, Anthony Di Maria, according to TMZ in a piece published Thursday. (Related: Joaquin Phoenix Wins The Academy Award For Best Actor For ‘Joker’)

Though the two men didn’t completely see eye to eye on everything, the discussion between the two led to a form of mutual understanding, and Phoenix along with the LA Animal Save group were able to free a mother cow and her newborn calf, a daughter.

“I never thought I’d find friendship in a slaughterhouse, but meeting Anthony and opening my heart to his, I realize we might have more in common than we do differences,” the actor shared of the meeting. “Without his act of kindness, Liberty and her baby calf, Indigo, would have met a terrible demise.”

In the video shared from the visit, we see the “Gladiator” star carrying the baby cow away from the holding area and placing into a trailer with her mom. The cow family will now live out the rest of their days at a Farm Sanctuary location in northern L.A. County. The pair are the fifth set of mother and baby cows liberated by the group, accroding to TMZ.

It all comes after the “Joker” star’s speech at the Academy Awards in which he talked about a variety of subjects, including social justice, human solidarity and cancel culture.

The speech then turned toward a discussion about plundering “natural resources” before talking about bovine insemination.

“We feel entitled to artificially inseminate a cow and when she gives birth, we steal her baby, even though her cries of anguish are unmistakable,” Joaquin went on. “And then we take her milk that’s intended for her calf and we put it in our coffee and our cereal. And I think we fear the idea of personal change because we think that we have to sacrifice something to give something up.”

How To Help Stop Somebody Stealing Your Blog Posts

Hugh's Views & News  

I recently stumbled upon a blog where the author had copied and was using my blog posts. No pingbacks or mention that I was the original author, just plain copy and pasting of some of my posts and images. It left me feeling angry, yet I also felt honoured that my work must be good enough if somebody wanted to copy it.

Unfortunately, with the internet being such a vast and open space used by billions of people worldwide, the chances of that happening to any one of us who publishes anything on the internet is a distinct possibility. Whether it be photos, fiction, reviews, poetry, recipes or gardening tips, everything faces the chance of being copied and somebody else taking full credit for your hard work.

Inflated Charges by Doctors is a Primary Reason for the High Cost of the US Medical System Compared to Other Countries; MDs Fleece Medicaid, Medicare & Private Insurance; Regulation (Cost/Fee Caps) & Monitoring for Fraud is the Only Solution

Mining Awareness +

The inflated charges by medical doctors are a primary reason that the US medical system is so costly, and appears mostly overlooked in healthcare debates. The high charges by doctors need to be capped, and better monitored to prevent fraud. US doctors are even allowed to charge Medicaid and Medicare too much.

The average salary of general practitioners in the United States is almost double that of other high-income countries. Specialists are even more overpaid. The US pays almost twice as much for medicines. Administration costs are 8% compared to 3% in other countries. [1]

A 2011 study by Laugesen et al. shows how much US doctors overcharge Medicaid-Medicare compared to other high income countries. They charge private insurance even more. This fleecing must be stopped. For instance: “Public program fees for uncomplicated, initial hip replacement surgeries (not revision surgeries) ranged from $652 in Canada and $674 in France…
