I’m gonna scream

their faces!!!


Elliott was found wandering the streets of Brooklyn with a tag in his ear that said “MEAT.” He had recently escaped from a live animal market in New York.

He has since gained almost 50 pounds, and is growing strong enough to romp and play.

After massive flooding in the Midwest in 2008, thousands of pigs were abandoned in factory farms. Among them was Nikki, who managed to save herself and gave birth in a levee. She kept her babies safe until rescuers arrived.

She and her babies are still inseparable!

Opie was discarded and left to die from hypothermia by a dairy producer.

Gene Baur, founder of Farm Sanctuary, rescued Opie. He later went on to become the leader of Farm Sanctuary’s cattle herd for 18 years.
“When people get to know a farm animal, look into the eyes of a cow, a pig or a chicken, they see that they are not that different than cats or dogs. They are very much like the companion animals that people have in their houses,” Baur said. “They have memories, they develop relationships, they have complex emotional lives just like other animals.”

I NEVER WANT THIS POST TO END

SAME

Healthy wolves and healthy women share certain characteristics: keen sensing, playful spirit, and a heightened capacity for devotion. Wolves and women are relational by nature, inquiring, possessed of great endurance and strength. They are deeply intuitive, intensely concerned with their young, their mates, and their pack. They are experienced in adapting to constantly changing circumstances; they are fiercely stalwart and brave.

Yet both have been hounded, harassed, and falsely imputed to be devouring and devious, overly aggressive, of less value than those who are their detractors … The predation of wolves and women by those who misunderstand them is strikingly similar.

Clarissa Pinkola Estes (via romanceonlysighs)
Hordes of men they hit the shields // Like waves they break away
We will sacrifice them one by one // Send them off to the gods (x)

2nd of May, 1536

Anne Boleyn is arrested and imprisoned in the tower of London.

On this day 1536, Anne Boleyn was arrested, accused of adultery with three different men: Mark Smeaton, Sir Henry Norris and a third, unnamed at this stage. She was also told that Smeaton and Norris had already confessed but her pleas of innoncence left no affect and the Royal Commission ordered the arrest. Anne was then escorted back to her chambers until the tide of the Thames turned, and at two o’clock in the afternoon she was escorted by barge to the Tower, imprisoned in the Queen’s Apartments of the Royal Palace, the same quarters she’d stayed in three years previous, the night before her coronation.
