The Life of Onni

I came across this flash-based tale while looking through the english-language edition of Helsingin Sanomat. It tells the tale of Onni, a Finnish pig, from conception to slaughter. I'm no animal-rights advocate, and this story isn't about to make me one, but I couldn't help feeling ... disturbed by it to an unusual extent. I daresay that, as animal rights propaganda goes, this story does more to sway me than anything Ingrid Newkirk and the rest of PETA ever could. I've never been a big fan of pork, but I'll be making double sure to avoid eating it from here on out.
