Katrina Hodgkinson MP, Minister for Primary Industries
I am writing to you in your capacity as the [position].
Information revealed recently from Aussie Farms' campaign against cruelty in the pork industry has alerted me to the inhumane practices being carried out at Allain's Piggery in Blakney Creek, NSW, which is owned by Allan and Elaine Howard.
I find these practices, including the use of farrowing crates and sow stalls, and regular mutilations like tail and teeth cutting carried out without pain relief, to be unacceptable.
I implore you to do all in your power to shut down Allain's Piggery immediately.

Please consider pigs as any other family pets. I raised a pet pig around a bunch of my dogs and he actually learned to bark his grunts. He also had tastes for specific foods like us humans.

this sort of farming is out off date and cruel,

It's a travesty when in this day and age, we let GREED and CRUELTY exist - perhaps the beneficiaries of the $s might want them and their families to spend their existence like that, that they are forcing on these animals - and absolute disgrace - boycott them for starters.

I was one of a small number of people allowed to see inside a rural piggery. The farmer made every effort to improve the quality of the pigs' lives. Initiatives included ensuring the pens were clean, light and airy, giving the pigs items to chew and play with, making sure they had space to move, and playing soft music, which they definitely enjoyed. They even had preferences as to what sort of music they liked, and would react differently to different types. Compared to this, intensive factory farms are just horrible. You wouldn't wish that sort of life on your worst enemy. They've got to go.

Fint bilde av en liten skapning som har det bra. Og godt er det!Jeg leste genjnom posten som du henviste til.Enda en god grunn til e5 oppfordre alle til e5 tenke litt lenger enn bare her og ne5.Det finnes mange alternative og gode lf8sninger til sprf8yting osv., og som er harmlf8st for oss alle. Be5de mennesker og dyr.Vi vet nemlig ikke konsekvensene av alle lettvinte lf8sninger i dag. Vi er korttenkte og bortskjemte. Og se5 altfor lite kritiske! :(

Pigs have extremely complex emotions - they experience similar stress when being separated from their partner as humans do - and are having to suffer hearing the screams from inside the gas chamber. They scrabble desperately to escape.
The footage shows a clearly disabled pig, unable to walk into a gas chamber, repeatedly prodded with an electric goad before a frustrated abattoir worker jumps into the run and kicks it twice.
I believe everyone who eats pork should watch this film. If they are unmoved then fine, continue to eat pork, otherwise STOP, or at the very least make sure you know the supplier has eared and killed the animals in the lost humane ways possible.
Carol Keith Fri 4/12/15 2:51pm
Much like I have said before.These animals deserve to be treated with respect and not forced to live in ultra abusive ways.If you must eat pork then try to imagine what these animals go through in your "piggeries".Install cameras to dictate the highest care and maintenance.Pay your employees more so that they care about what they do.Instill work ethics that must be maintained,and if you can't do that,then close these hell holes down.

There is no need to kill animals with the abundance of plant based foods in the world. Humane killing is a myth and only serves to distance us from the murder and mutilation done behind closed doors and served up in pretty packaging.
Renata Halpin Sat 21/11/15 7:07am
I find it so sad that we have to sign petitions to ask humans to stop being cruel to animals, but here I am. If you are reading this, watch Lucent and stop buying products that cause the need for these farmers to breed and kill these beautiful animals. Open your hearts. Animals need our help. how we are treating them is wrong, and with knowledge comes RESPONSIBILITY.

I am vehemently opposed to the abhorent torture of these highly intellegent, sentient, loving, innocent, helpless creatures who are at the mercy of humans choice of treatment inflictent upon them - please please have mercy on these beautiful animals and allow them to live the life they were put on this earth to do, to love and nurture their babies, and have a fear free and pain free existence - they are NO different to your pet dog or cat and deserve the same respect and protection. Humans have NO right to exploit them to simply satisfy their tastebuds. Most people eat "meat" only because most people eat meat - this is a rapidly decreasing trend, thank God. It is 2015 and time to EVOLVE to behave like the so called superior intelliget beings that we proport to be

Stop this cruel practice and start treating animals how you would like to be treated. They have the ability to feel complex emotions like you do, have similar internal organs to you so why do you treat them like objects? Criminals do not even get treated this way and these animals have never caused harm to anyone. Learn to have some compassion for those that do not have a voice.
Kerry Cossins Tue 7/7/15 7:28pm
I have now ceased eating all animal products due to the cruelty involved in how they are treated (mistreated). If companies cannot accept and do the right thing, then I will be part of the solution in solving the animal cruelty issue. Have a heart people, we are all in this world together. If companies cannot manage how animal are treated, then if there is no demand, change will have to occur. Nothing can be gained from cruelty
