Pigs

THE ISSUES

Life of a Pig 

Around 90 per cent of ‘commercial’ pigs in Australia are factory-farmed, and it's hard to imagine what these animals endure in their brief lives.  As piglets, they are taken from their mother after being born and then castrated, their tails sliced off, and their teeth clipped. These procedures are all undertaken without anaesthetic. They are then forced to live in over-crowded stalls on concrete floors covered in filth and faeces for the remainder of their lives before being sent to slaughter.
