The Fellowship of Life
Almost all pigs raised for meat in Britain are factory farmed indoors
in overcrowded, ill-lit, filthy conditions that cause extreme discomfort
and stress to these intelligent animals.
Every time they give birth, most breeding pigs spend a month or more
in a metal farrowing crate so small they can barely move.
Contrary to the image painted by the British pig industry and the
Government, most pigs never see any bedding and spend their lives on
dirty, wet concrete. Unsurprisingly, diseases are rife and so is the use
of drugs and antibiotics.
