No animals deserve this
Pigs are wonderful animals. They’re as intelligent as dogs, and they form strong relationships in small family groups.
But sadly, the pork industry is one of the cruellest meat industries – it’s terrible for the pigs at all stages of their lives.
The industry has been clever at keeping this secret, because many Australians would refuse to buy pork products if they knew about the cruelty in factory farms and during the slaughter process.
Despite this consecutive governments have provided legal exceptions for farmers, to prevent them being prosecuted for animal cruelty, so they can maximise their profits.
This documentary video shows the reality of a South Australian piggery.
It shows us that factory farming is as terrible here as anywhere in the world.
