Beat 360° 8/21/09

Ready for today's Beat 360°? Everyday we post a picture – and you provide the caption and our staff will join in too. Tune in tonight at 10pm to see if you are our favorite! Here is the 'Beat 360°' pic:

Pigs belonging to Jan Fletcher that she owns with her partner and two other couples feed on land close to her home on August 17 2009 in Peasedown, England. This week major DIY retailer B&Q, announced that it is planning to stock modern pigsties to cater for the growing number of consumers interested in keeping animals in their back garden. Helped in part by the recession, recent evidence suggests lots of people in the UK are keener than ever to grow their own food, be it vegetables or more adventurous husbandury such as bee-keeping and pig rearing.

    I thought all those "swine flu" rumors were fake. But look Bessie, Porky sure is making a go of it. Now maybe we can finally get off this farm.

    It would be a wonderful world if we stopped the slaughter of animals. There are many bogus excuses by humans to justify their slaughter and consumption of other living things. Bottom line, it is all about greed and satisfying our primitive appetites.

    Hog, hog on the range, where the sows and piggies all play. Where seldom is heard a discouraging word except on the way to slaughter.
