The farm Vegan Bullerbyn converts Internet users to vegans: He convinces of a meat-free diet at least with a TikTok video in which a zookeeper strokes a pig.
Herrieden – He strokes a pig and doesn't say a word: With this catchy scene, the TikTok video of the Vegan Bullerbyn e.V. farm in the district of Ansbach convinces many users that they no longer want to eat meat. The video shows an animal keeper and is intended to draw attention to the welfare of pigs – with success.

That's why I'm already vegetarian – pork video as a success for veganism
"You rarely think about the pig on your plate and its life." This is the text from the TikTok video with which the vegan farm addresses its followers. Shortly thereafter, the keeper lets the pig "speak", which audibly enjoys the cuddles.

In the comments, several users write about their vegan lifestyle or that they will give up meat after watching the video. They report on their experiences with stopping meat consumption and support each other in the comments.
- "So that's my point now, I don't eat meat anymore! I haven't eaten much meat yet, but now it's completely over."
- "That's why I'm already vegetarian and try to live vaguely wherever I can"
- "Vegan for 6 years, even though I "had" to eat meat 3 times a day before that (at least that's what I thought). I don't regret a single second."
- "I'm so happy when I see something like this and I'm so happy that I don't eat meat anymore. Animals have the same right to live."
According to its own information, Vegan Bullerbyn e.V. comprises around 130 animals that live on the farm in Herrieden in the district of Ansbach. The work is done by the members or volunteers. They want to be a "meeting place and safeplace" and actively implement a vegan lifestyle.
