Wally owned at least two piggeries, Wally’s Piggery near Yass and Tennessee Piggery near Young, which have now both been closed thanks to our campaign. At Wally's Piggery in Yass, located 20 minutes from Australia's Capital Territory, Wally personally bashed his pigs to death with a sledgehammer and hacked at their throats while his employees stood by drinking beer, some pigs taking up to 6 minutes to die as shown in footage from our undercover camera installation. The pigs' remains were left sometimes for days on end to be eaten by stray cats and other pigs.
Sows were confined to farrowing crate enclosures so tiny they can't turn around, and were repeatedly impregnated. Restricted space, filthy conditions, and abuse from employees resulted in the frequent injuries and deaths of the piglets and their mothers. Wally’s piggery is one example of what the pork industry is promoting as “sow stall free”.
Extract from RiotACT from user claiming to be a previous employee of Wally’s:
“I don't like the man and hated when i worked for him for a few months many years ago, .... The RSPCA came out when I worked there that was over 20 years ago nothing has changed in all that time. I hope he can be shut down or made to clean up his act. I doubt he could stay on the straight and narrow as he is a crime.You think he treats his pigs bad you should see how he treats his staff and worse his wife and daughters. I'm glad this has come to light and hope something is done not just in the short turn but for ever. I also think he has another farm or business somewhere else in the state.”
Extract from RiotACT from user who may be local to the Yass/Murrumbateman area:
“Actually the locals out in Murrumbateman and Yass have known for years something was very wrong with that piggery - some of the local youths get jobs there, I think, although I understood that no-one stayed there for long, and there was an air of “things that should never have been seen” about the experience from the locals who mentioned it... So it seemed common knowledge that it was a hell-hole, but small townspeople don’t get involved in that sort of thing... When I connect the dots, it appears to me now that the cook and the pub owner and the other locals from whom I heard about the piggery were extremely leery of Wally... as in, “reminds me of this guy called Ivan Milat” leery...”
