Justice for Pigs Confined to Tiny Crates and Jabbed at With Pipes

 

Target: Nathan Guy, Minister for Primary Industries, New Zealand

Goal: End cruelty in the factory farming industry.

Pigs are seen confined to tiny crates and beaten with pipes in disturbing footage published by an undercover animal investigation. In an undisclosed pig farm in Waikato, New Zealand, footage taken by welfare organizations Farmwatch and Save Animals From Exploitation (SAFE) shows sows biting and struggling against farowing cages, or tiny cages designed to limit the movement of mother pigs so that they don’t roll over onto their piglets.

The video shows the sows unable to turn around or take more than a step in either direction, and barely able to lie down for weeks at a time. The shocking footage also shows piglets being pulled away from their screaming mothers and thrown into containers, as well as an employee using a feeding pipe to jab a sow in the head.

Unfortunately, this abuse is commonplace in the pig farming industry. These cruel cages are the industry standard, and animal abuse tends to run rampant in farms, where financial profit is often valued over the welfare of the animals.

The government recognized that farrowing crates are inhumane and a breach of New Zealand’s Animal Welfare Act, which requires animals to be able to engage in natural behaviors.

However, according to SAFE, new welfare standards put in place to remedy the cruelty only require a small amount of extra space in crates, still leaving sows unable to move or turn around.

These crates should be banned altogether, and increased punishments for animal cruelty by farm workers must be implemented. Demand that the New Zealand government make an effort to stop the cruelty rampant in the factory farming industry.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Guy,

An undercover investigation of an undisclosed pig farm in Waikato has revealed shocking abuse. Pigs are seen confined to tiny cages, unable to move and barely able to lie down. They are seen struggling against their cages and being prodded and jabbed with feeding pipes. Unfortunately, this cruelty is commonplace in the pig farming industry.

Farrowing crates should be completely banned, and increased punishments for animal cruelty by farm workers must be implemented. We, the undersigned, demand that you implement new protections to stop the cruelty rampant in the factory farming industry.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
