Animal rights pioneer Regan Russell, 65, was violently struck and killed by a pig transport truck in front of Sofina’s Fearmans slaughterhouse in Burlington, Ontario on Friday, June 19, 2020.
She regularly attended pig vigils and on this day was at a Toronto Pig Save vigil with other activists giving pigs water on one of the hottest days of the year.
Without warning, the driver of the lorry revved his engine and knocked Regan to the ground, cutting her body in half as she was dragged 30 meters.
It was murder!
Her legacy of love and compassion lives on. Up to her very last breath, she tried to expose the injustices that animals endure at our hands, and her story should be heard around the world.
May you rest in power!
You won’t be forgotten.
