Sanctuary from the Laaaaaaaaaw
Farm Sanctuary is an awesome organization, which operates two huge shelters to “rescue, rehabilitate and provide lifelong care for hundreds of animals who have been rescued from stockyards, factory farms, and slaughterhouses.”
One of the shelters is a 300-acre farm three hours north of where I live in California, and every now and then Farm Sanctuary organizes events and tours of the facility so us outsiders can see how things are run there and spend some time with a bunch of rescued cows, pigs, sheep, goats, turkeys and chickens, among others.
This in itself sounds like a pretty incredible way to spend a day, but couple of weeks ago, I got a flyer for something even more awesome – a particularly metal sounding excursion called the ‘Twilight Tour’ which promised to provide an “inside glimpse into the nocturnal lives of farm animals”.
Nocturnal wanderings through bestial realms? Needless to say, this was an offer I couldn’t refuse. I donned my Maiden shirt and made the drive singing ‘Sanctuary’ for three hours, after which I spent a (black) magickal few hours chilling with the horned ones (well, non-horned ones too, but you know what I mean…)
