End the animal cruelty at Murrumbateman's Wally's Piggery

A pig farm just outside of Canberra continues to operate despite having been found guilty of gross animal cruelty by the RSPCA 3 months ago.

Footage captured by Animal Liberation NSW shows dozens of animals being forced to tightly cram into pens; workers kicking piglets and beating sows with sledgehammers; buckets of dead piglets stored nearby and sows left with open, untreated wounds. Some of this footage can be viewed at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSXcL7-_D9Y

Whilst intensive-farming of animals, such as cage-egg production and sow stalls, will be banned in the ACT under the parliamentary deal struck between Labor and the Greens this month, farms such as Wally's Piggery, which is in NSW, will be unaffected.

Call on NSW Minister for Primary Industries, Katrina Hodgkinson, to bring an end to these abuses today!

      So many people think this sort of thing happens "in other countries". It's places like Wally's that should make us all hang our heads in shame. If you insist upon your "right" to eat meat, at least ensure the animals who are raised for you to kill are treated with SOME form of respect. They ARE no different to your cherished dog, cat or horse.

      Because I love animals and believe they should have rights. no animal deserves to live this kind of life!
