Animal suffering “Made in Italy”

In collaboration with Italian television, Animal Equality has released a new investigation that reveals the cruel reality for pigs bred for meat in Northern Italy—a region that markets its products with the stamp of the “excellence of Made in Italy.”

THE DETAILS: In September 2020, Animal Equality and Italian journalist Roberta Spinelli visited a pig farm in Brescia, Italy, and documented terrible abuse and suffering—images in stark contrast from the idyllic picture of contented animals on green pastures often painted by the region’s producers.

The investigative team found:

-Pigs abandoned and left to die in corridors
-Bodies of dead pigs amongst the living
-Workers dragging pigs by their legs with ropes
-Animals with cysts and sores, unable to walk because of their open wounds
-Animals crammed together and forced to live in overcrowded, unsanitary conditions
-Pigs covered with feces and urine
-Cockroach, rat, and worm infestations
-Sewage not properly disposed of in a ditch adjacent to the farm and fields

WHAT WE’RE SAYING: “Thanks to this investigation, the horrors of Bascia’s pig farms are clearly revealed.

We can no longer turn our heads from the suffering to which these sentient beings are forced to endure—mistreatment that happens behind the closed doors of these polluting farms which are often beneficiaries of public funds.

We need more checks and balances for these places, and we need them now,” says Alice Trombetta, Executive Director of Animal Equality Italy.

And I mean…The horror situation in the farms is not new – from our experience, we can say that the situation has been this way for over 20 years – maybe it has gotten even worse.
Incidentally, and of course, all of this applies not only to pigs but also to cattle, etc., and an even greater “mess” can be observed with poultry.

In addition,  the (dismantling) personnel in a slaughterhouse, called dismantling columns (!), mostly from third countries, are usually housed in a way that could well be described as ‘barracked’!
What is shameful about this is that ‘politicians’ are surprised today and pretend that none of this was known!

Meat producers are simply criminals, nothing more and nothing less.
Are the beneficiaries of a corrupt system.

But the good fact is: each of us has a conscience, a large brain, empathy, and the ability to make decisions

If we use these wonderful properties, we can decide against animal exploitation, animal cruelty, and animal mass extermination.
Mentally, morally, socially healthy people with decency do not need such disgusting, fascist system structures.

My best regards to all, Venus
