An Animal Sanctuary In Italy Is Saving Baby Lambs From The Easter Table

Nerola is a small town in Italy where Massimo Manni has constructed a small paradise for animals. The sanctuary saves animals from slaughterhouses and street animals that their owners have abandoned. Just before the Easter weekend, Manni has managed to save two lambs that were intended to be consumed on Easter. The third lamb took a lot of convincing and pleading to the owners to release the animal that they intended to butcher before Easter. Italy consumes more than two million lambs a year, especially during festivals and holidays. The tradition dates back centuries, but this activity is gradually declining due to animal rights activists like Manni and the decrease in shepherds that directly influence lamb meat availability. As a young man, Manni once sold lambs to the slaughterhouse, and on returning home, he found their mother wailing in protest. The noise was so heartbreaking that he went back to the slaughterhouse and repurchased them at twice the price. Since then, he has devoted himself to protesting against animal cruelty
