Cool Room - It wasn't too long ago that I first walked into a cool room, despite investigating slaughterhouses for several years. Desensitisation is inevitable, but when I see something new, the true horror of it all hits me as hard as it ever did again.

I experienced that horror in this cool room. The first night I went in I only lasted a few seconds. I was so scared and felt incredibly unsafe as it dawned on me that I was in such a death-saturated environment. I saw these bodies, particularly the pigs with their skin not unlike my own, and imagined myself hanging there next to them; another body, another object, another nothing.

And if I were born a sheep, pig or cow, I would likely be hung up there next. The animals hanging there were all individuals like I, they would have felt all the fear that I did in that factory and more, and they would have all wanted to save their lives as much as I would have if someone were to try to put me there next to them. My good fortune, or luck to avoid this was being born a human.
