P&G Sleigh Pig Unit in Scotland- Pigs ‘hammered to death’!

Animal Equality’s undercover investigation has revealed a number of serious legal violations at P&G Sleigh Pig Unit in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, a ‘quality assured’ pig farm which is owned by senior pig industry figure, Philip Sleigh.

Animal Equality sent letters outlining the breaches of animal welfare legislation to the relevant authorities, urging them to take immediate action against this facility using the full force of the law.

A criminal investigation is underway.

As individuals, the best thing we can do to help pigs just like the ones we filmed on this farm is keeping them off our plates and encouraging others to choose plant-based alternatives to animal products too.

Animal Equality has investigated 10 British pig farms within five years, finding severe animal suffering and flagrant disregard for animal welfare in every single one.

This is yet another case of an accredited ‘high welfare’ farm flouting the law.

The recordings of the undercover research show:

● Female breeding pigs who are repeatedly artificially inseminated and are forced to give birth and suckle their piglets in cages so small that they cannot even turn around

● Piglets who routinely have their tails cut off with a hot blade and their teeth cut off with pliers, without any anesthesia or pain relief

● Piglets that are killed directly on the premises because they are classified as too small or too weak

● Animals hit with a hammer

● Pigs hit against the hard, concrete floor

● Sows with labia injuries and severe prolapses, in which the uterus or internal organs protrude from the body

● a pig with an extremely severe uterine prolapse that was forced to stand and walk for over a minute and a half before being killed

● Pigs raised in poor, dark conditions

● Pigs living in pens flooded with water and feces without access to dry bedding

And I mean…Philip Sleigh helped to draw up welfare standards as chairman of the pig’s standard-setting committee of Quality Meat Scotland (QMS), a public body to which he had been appointed as a director by the Scottish government.

He resigned from QMS this month after being informed of this undercover footage shot at the P&G Sleigh Pig Unit in Aberdeenshire that showed a worker hammering pigs to death and sows with severe injuries, including organs protruding from their bodies.

This is “high welfare”!!!

“A love of farming goes back several generations in my family,” said Sleigh in an interview of 2019.

“My father was a farmer, my grandfather was a farmer and my great-grandfather was also a farmer, so that runs in my blood.”

We don’t know what runs in his blood. But certainly on his hands are tons of blood from tortured pigs

Philip Sleigh describes himself as an “advocate for keeping his pigs happy and to ensure his herd remains happy and healthy, he is fastidious about how they are cared for”!

“I talk to them every day,” he said (https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/lifestyle/food-drink/a-passion-for-pig-farming-1390678)

That is how psychopaths always talk!

To qualify for the Specially Selected Pork label, pork must be produced in a way that meets the strict standards required by Quality Meat Scotland’s quality assurance schemes.

QMS has now removed Sleigh’s farm from its quality assurance scheme.

The lawbreaker Sleigh declined to comment when approached at his farm today.

The unit-concentration camp has not been closed down as far as we know.

My best regards to all, Venus

  1. Isn’t it disturbingly pathetic when animal farmers claim to “love” the animals but then get absolutely triggered by vegans who don’t exploit animals?
