Denmark has one of the biggest farm industries in the world. These animals live under very bad conditions.

Small pigs and calves are removed from their mothers. Cows and pigs live in bases where they cannot turn around. Slat calves and battery hens.

More than 30,000 dairy cows are killed each year "before time" because of neglect.

Pigs are being mistreated on the way to the slaughterhouse as they are loaded on trucks because slaughterhouses reward the farmers that provide quick loading.

Horses are sent to slaughterhouses abroad and endure extremely long transport times, with the result that many die of thirst and stress. The rest are more or less crippled.

Sheep are transported in a similar way to horses.

In less than one month, we have read about:

  • Piglets, who starved and dehydrated started to eat each other alive. Piglets, who are drowned in the stools, and piglets are transported thousands of miles with broken bones.
  • Hundreds of Danish pigs are beaten before they end up as roast pork on the dinner table.
    Iron pipes, boards, chains and even a tattoo hammer are just some of the things that used to disfigure the pigs.
  • Millions of pigs killed for meat each year. They will be neutered and will have their ears chopped into, without the use of painkillers, they will be filled with medicine to their life and they will grow up in conditions that would otherwise kill them. Stripped of everything that is natural for them to be pigs in factory farms held inside the narrow metal stalls in dirty stall.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
