Stop Priestlands School from Sending Pigs to Slaughter!

This petition had 58,496 supporters

Priestlands School in Lymington currently have 4 female Tamworth & Gloucester Old Spot pigs that are 5 - 6 months old. These pigs came to the school as part of a programme to encourage children to learn about animals and for the children to help with ‘fattening up the pigs for slaughter’.

In 2018 we should be teaching children compassion towards animals. The school has made students and parents uncomfortable, by discriminating against their beliefs by condemning these pigs to death. One concerned vegan parent has begged the school over the past few months to send the pigs to a sanctuary as opposed to a slaughterhouse. However, the school has now decided to send the pigs back to the farmer, who will then take them to C&S Meats Ltd where they will be slaughtered. The school disregarded the parent as "in the minority" and have decided that the pigs must die. 

Priestlands School has the chance to do the right thing. Please sign the petition and ask them to save the pigs and send them to Tower Hills Stables, an animal sanctuary who has agreed to take them, so they can live out the rest of their lives in peace and freedom. 


UPDATE: The school have apparently been doing this for over a decade. How many innocent animals has Priestlands School sent to slaughter?
