Yet another pig farm exposed
Posted 13 February 2012
A recent investigation by Animal Equality at a pig farm in Norfolk found animals being kicked, slapped and beaten with iron bars and gate rods, and workers scraping a knife across the backs of pigs to force them to move.
The 200 hours of footage has now been handed to the RSPCA, which has described it as ‘some of the most shocking we have ever received and we are taking this most seriously’.
The farm’s owner claimed not to have known what was happening and says that he has dealt with the staff involved ‘appropriately’.
There have been many investigations into UK farms in recent years that have shown the abject misery of animals and the cruelty they are forced to endure. It’s time to go meat-free.
