Killing babies to satisfy our tastebuds. These piglets are not food. We are inflicting violence on innocent beings, exploiting and oppressing them in the process. This little one is about 8 weeks old, he was torn from his mother at just 3 weeks old and tossed like a football into a trolley to take him to a shed. Many of the sheds the weaners are carted to are called eco sheds giving the illusion that they live in some kind of wonderful environment that gives them a lovely life. This is not true. The sheds are devoid of anything that could provide stimulation to the piglets. They are barren, occasionally some minimal straw may be thrown in but it quickly turns to a filthy sludge from faeces and urine. But usually they are left with just concrete floors with pools of filth here and there due to the floor being uneven and unable to drain properly.They have food and water and nothing else but themselves. They live in what can only be described as a filthy squalor, covered in their own faeces and urine and buzzing flies.
To relieve the extreme boredom they will look for anything to entertain themselves, and that means targeting each other's curly tails and causing injury to each other. To stop this from happening the industry cuts off their tails without any pain relief, all within a few days of being born. This is no life. They exist. Just to be your next piece of miserable bacon.
