UK firefighters that saved 18 piglets and 2 sows from a barn fire in February posted today about eating those same piglets as sausages.
The firefighters posted a Facebook photo featuring the sausages as a way to "thank" the farmers: "Huge thank you to Rachel Rivers for dropping them off for us to sample. Highly recommended by Pewsey fire station crew and if any one of our followers is having a bank holiday BBQ this weekend then check out these sausages, they are fantastic."
The Facebook post has since been removed and replaced with an apology.
Sometimes, the cognitive dissonance we experience with farmed animal is too real to believe.
