So, I posted this on my animal advocacy blog, Ag on the Forefront, but I am so in awe over the pictures I've seen from Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano, that I wanted to share here too. This volocano, that affected millions of travelers around the world, even had the World Health Organization issue a health warning to Europeans, not to mention the health affects of locals.
As I look at some of these pictures and think about animal welfare, it shows that Iceland farmers were concerned for the safety and health of their livestock, thus sealing barns and moving them to safer locations. They were out sacrificing their health (shown by the guy covered in ash) for their animals. Collected here are some images from Iceland over the past week, and check out the link below for more amazing pictures. (Drag your mouse over each picture for description.)
