Animal Ghosts

The documentary, “The Ghost in Our Machine,” follows photographer, Jo-Anne McArthur as she takes pictures to show animal abuse on factory farms and how animals are helped by sanctuaries like Farm Sanctuary.  It is a disturbing film but an extremely important one.  We must rethink how we contribute to the cruelty inflicted upon dogs, cats, foxes, minks and farm animals.  Please watch the trailer below.  Jo-Anne McArthur has a book of her photographs and writings called, “We Animals.”

oh, to nuzzle her fur

smell her dander

feel her tongue

upon my face

and her fluffy fur

against my skin

and Dutchie

another innocent

another tactile teacher

peace personified

oh to hold her in my lap

as she sleeps

and have her total trust

lying on blue-jeaned legs
