Shocking Footage Video: Italian Pigs Investigation; Petition To Sign Please

Comments Off on Shocking Footage Video: Italian Pigs Investigation; Petition To Sign Please

Compassion in World Farming’s Investigation Unit recently undertook an undercover investigation into pig farming in Italy. What they found were pigs crowded together in inhumane conditions suffering routine cruelty.

We have produced a short video containing some of the footage that our investigators uncovered. We must warn you that it is upsetting viewing. You can take action on this issue without watching the film, but if you do choose to view it, please be warned that it contains images of animal suffering.

Viewer Discretion – Shocking Footage – Italian Pig Investigation

Published on 31 May 2013

A recent investigation by Compassion in World Farming into intensive pig farming in Italy has uncovered shocking maltreatment.

Following our recent investigation into Spanish pig farms, Compassion visited 11 farms in Italy. On every single one, we found the EU Pigs Directive (designed to protect the welfare of pigs) being blatantly flouted.

Widespread maltreatment uncovered

Every single one of the 11 farms visited by our investigators was blatantly flouting the EU Pigs Directive – a piece of legislation designed to protect the welfare of all the EU’s 255 million pigs.

Our investigation exposed:

  • Pigs living in completely barren environments, being housed on bare concrete with nothing to satisfy their inquisitive minds
  • Pigs with tails routinely docked – a painful mutilation used to prevent tail-biting, which can occur when pigs are forced to live in barren conditions
  • Pigs left sick or injured. On one farm, a pig was so severely wounded from fighting that it had died.

We believe these farms to be representative of the massive Italian pig industry – which means up to 13 million Italian pigs could be enduring these terrible conditions every year.

We must tell the world what is happening behind the closed doors of Italian pig farms so please share the film with as many friends as possible. Use this link:

Compassion in World Farming is calling for:

  • Enrichment materials (such as straw) to be provided to all pigs
  • Tail docking to only be used as a last resort, never routinely
  • Sows to be kept in groups, in large pens, with plenty of bedding
  • Limited stocking densities, to avoid over-crowding
  • All sick or injured animals to be treated and cared for immediately.

Compassion in World Farming has launched an EU-wide petition, calling on the Agriculture Ministers from all 27 EU Member States to ensure that the Pigs Directive is fully enforced in every EU nation.

Please take action by signing the petition now and call for an end to this unacceptable treatment of pigs in Italy and throughout the EU.

Comments Off on Dog Rescued From Locked Suitcase Would Have Been Crushed In Garbage Truck

“OMG…I found this by chance on one of my many “who did it” trails… so please note the following, it has been translated & is….albeit a little disjointed, I have tried to make sense of it! I got the details from the blog below, but if anyone know’s anything please contact those below!”

“There are some really sick people out there, if you don’t want your dog take it to a pound, don’t shove it in a bloody suitcase to be thrown in the back of a garbage truck…I don’t know how anyone could live with themselves having done this…I hope my mate “Karma” makes a visit to the culprits house…very soon!!”

BITCH ON RESCUED FROM A LOCKED CONTAINER IN A CASE THAT IS IN THE SHELTER VALLEY COLINO: (information by Olga ere) copy and paste your information:

First all staff and volunteers of the shelter wants to thank the people who warned this bitch and rescued from certain death.

Despite the atrocity, let’s stay with the positive aspect that people are increasingly aware and hopefully very pronto these cruelties thing of the past. Valle Colino’s veterinarian has examined the dog and has several bites all over her body, superficial character , but without gravity.

The health status of the dog seems to be good but still under observation. Already several people are organizing to file a subsequent complaint with all the data that have been collected and also the report accompanying veterinarian.

Finally we want to end this message with the good news that a person already have expressed interest in adopting the dog and hopefully soon make the necessary legal procedures to do so, since it falls within the breeds considered by law as potentially dangerous.

Anything new, keep reporting. Thank you! (Olga ere) ———– Added staff (Miguel Medina) is that this product is Argentina, when something this serious happens is important to spread, luckily story with readers bastos santa cruz Spain and Tenerife.
