When the suffering of another creature causes you to feel pain, do not submit to the initial desire to flee from the suffering one, but on the contrary, come closer, as close as you can to him who suffers, and try to help him.”
– Leo Tolstoy

REGAN RUSSELL KILLED
Animal rights activist Regan Russell, 65, was struck and killed by a pig transport truck in front of Fearmans slaughterhouse on Friday, June 19, 2020.
Regan was at a Toronto Pig Save vigil with 6 other activists giving pigs water on a scorching hot day. She regularly attended pig vigils and on this particular day Regan was there to oppose Ontario ag gag Bill 156, which had passed two days prior. Regan died trying to expose what Bill 156 will hide.
Regan was born and raised in Hamilton and moved to Winnipeg where she became a model. She was an animal activist since 1979 and enjoyed spending time with the family’s seven rescue cats. Her husband Mark calls for continued fight against animal abuse.
