Pigs are highly intelligent animals whose capacity to suffer is great. Investigators discovered this dying pig with leg wounds so severe that she could not reach food. Tragically the general conditions at this Tasmanian piggery – pregnant pigs confined in 'sow stalls' so small they cannot turn around – is allowable under the industry code of practice, despite such treatment constituting a cruelty offence if the victim were a dog or cat. Please help pressure the Tasmanian Government to create better standards for these sensitive animals.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
