Home after a long day at work? Ready for some food, but too tired to cook? There is always some pizza delivery available, right? Think again:

“A new Mercy For Animals undercover investigation reveals appalling animal abuse at a Leprino Foods dairy supplier. Leprino Foods is the world’s largest mozzarella cheese producer and a supplier to virtually all of the major pizza chains in the country, including Pizza Hut, Papa John’s, and Domino’s.”

Pigs Would Support Punjab´s Decision

Is Punjab going to lead the way in preventing cruelty toward pigs? If only other countries would follow in the footsteps of this country´s grand decision:

“Back in June we posted on Facebook about shutting down India’s only gestation crate facility, a swine farm seeking to introduce this intensive confinement practice into the country. Sows confined in gestation crates aren’t able to turn around and often can’t lie down comfortably for months at a time. Such extreme confinement causes physical and mental suffering for these intelligent, sociable animals.

Closing the facility was a good start, but we also wanted to win broader and long-lasting protection for pigs, and we have good news to report!With further encouragement, the Government of Punjab has now issued an official direction making this type of intensive confinement an offense under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. Officials in the government confirmed with us this week that their focus is now on alternatives.”

As long as people do not know what is going on behind the walls of slaughterhouses they can pretend that life is good for farm animals. Articles like this one can change this.

Even Prison Is Better Than This

Most farm animals no longer actually live on what our imagination pictures as a farm: a place with a red barn, a rooster on a heap of straw welcoming the day with his crow while the hens cackle enthusiastically, picking in the lush meadow. A pink pig rolling happily in a cool mud pond before strutting over to the trough for a delicious vegetarian meal.

No, most farm animals are confined to cages that do not let them move freely, let alone feel the sun on their bodies or roll over happily.

“Imagine being locked in a cage or crate so small you couldn’t extend your arms and legs or even turn around. How long would it be before you felt cramped, frustrated and afraid?

Hundreds of millions of pigs and billions of egg-laying hens spend their entire lives this way. Help us change that — sign our “no cages” pledge!

Wann wird “Du Schwein” eine Liebkosung?

Foto: Albert Schweitzer Stiftung für unsere Mitwelt

“Du Schwein” ist leider immer noch keine Koseform sondern eine Beleidigung. Geht der Mensch deswegen so bösartig, gemein und sadistisch mit diesen Tieren um? Grauenhafte Szenen spielen sich dort ab, wo der Mensch auf die wehrlosen Tiere trifft.

“Ausrede »Einzelfälle« und Gegenangriffe sind hinfällig

Für den Beitrag hat allein die Organisation ARIWA in zehn verschiedenen Ställen in insgesamt vier Bundesländern recherchiert und dabei z. T. auch bei Marktführern gefilmt. Hinzu kamen u. a. weitere Aufnahmen anderer Organisationen sowie ein anonymer Kontakt innerhalb der Behörden. Exclusiv im Ersten hat die Aufnahmen und Informationen zu einem umfassenden Bericht über den Status quo in der Ferkelzucht zusammengefügt, der keine Zweifel daran lässt, dass gravierende Missstände an der Tagesordnung sind.

Einschlägige Interessengruppen hindert das allerdings nicht daran, trotzdem noch von Einzelfällen zuschreiben und sich darüber hinaus zu beschweren, dass die Aufnahmen heimlich erstellt wurden. Statt um »illegale Filmaufnahmen« und »Einbrüche« handelt es sich allerdings nur um abgemilderte Hausfriedensbrüche, die aufgrund des berechtigten öffentlichen Interesses am Umgang mit den »Nutztieren« und der nur vorgetäuschten Transparenz der Agrarindustrie absolut notwendig sind. Dass solche Hausfriedensbrüche vertretbar sind, ist nicht nur unsere Meinung, sondern auch Stand der Rechtsprechung.”

Petition: Pigs Want Out

For those who still eat meat it should become more and more important to know where their food comes from. And for those who no longer support this violence against innocent creatures it is still a necessity to know what is happening and urging others to stay informed so that eventually there is a chance of ending these hellish conditions.

“In PETA’s latest undercover investigation, lame pigs were found languishing, mother pigs, some with sores, were confined to crates so small that they couldn’t even turn around, and injured animals were relegated to a “junk pen” before being shipped to their deaths.

The facility documented here is the beginning for the animals who become bacon, pork chops, and sausage. It is the first place where pigs suffer before they and generations of their piglets are shipped off to be dismembered. Their bodies and spirits are broken, and they need your help.

Please join (…) in contacting Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack and asking him and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to pursue more funding for slaughterhouse inspections that would make pigs’—and many other animals’—deaths less terrifying and painful.”
