Petition: Shut Down All Rivalea Slaughterhouses and Piggeries

Rivalea Australia is the country's largest pig killing company, and one of the most highly-regarded. It is clear that there is no humane way of killing pigs for food.

I demand that all piggeries and slaughterhouses owned by Rivalea are shut down, though I accept that they are only one part of the problem, and as such I pledge to do all that I can to stop supporting this inherently cruel, disgusting industry.

    Animals are no less then what we are, we are equals to what matters, we all share a heart and a brain. These animals can feel pain, they can feel love and they can suffer. What were doing as a community is selfish and appalling. They deserve better and so do we, do the best you can do today and go vegan.

    The treatment of these animals is absolutely disgusting. The level of intelligence that pigs posses alone, should warrant the end of this abuse. The consumption of pork is comparable to the consumption of a young human child, or your family pets. Which would be deemed criminal in every sense of the word, and no doubtledly result in charges. Why do we have one set of standards on how we treat a species of animal/being and totally disregard those standards towards animals that are 'acceptable' to be cruelly slaughtered. This behaviour is disgusting, barbaric and ultimately subhuman.

    Pigs are intelligent and sentient animals.

    What is occurring in these piggeries and slaughterhouses is nothing less than an atrocity. Why can't we recognise the beauty, the wonder and the variety of life and show respect for it. It is as though humans have lost their way. The idea of farming with the sole purpose of killing, is shameful but made all the more by those that show contempt for the sacrifice, contempt for the animal that keeps so many alive, contempt for the animal that provides them with and income and occupation. “Contempt” is not the right word. What is witnessed is cruelty, sickening, deplorable cruelty.

    Pope Francis said “Each creature possesses its own particular goodness and perfection… Each of the various creatures, willed in its own being, reflects in its own way a ray of God’s infinite wisdom and goodness. Man must therefore respect the particular goodness of every creature” and “Eternal life will be a shared experience of awe, in which each creature, resplendently transfigured, will take its rightful place."

    Tolstoy said, "As long as there are slaughterhouses there will be battlefields". As we move into the 21st century the world is lurching under the burgeoning human population. If we have any chance of surviving as a species into the 22nd century we need to develop a kinder was of living...and it start here. It starts with closing all piggeries and slaughterhouses owned by Rivalea.

    Sow stalls are prisons causing deprivation of the worst kind.
    Baby piglets are born on concrete, die on concrete,
    They are castrated,have teeth clipped and tails cut off,all without pain relief - pain is suffered for days on end
    Why are these beautiful intelligent animals not protected by law.

    Obviously there are a lot of people out there in the industry who would have worked with Hitler: gassings and killings of animals is horrendously cruel. It also renders the meat far less healthy with the deprivation of oxygen, tbe injections of gas and the release of stress hormones.

    Additionally breeding animals in cages, causing innocent beings ( they are animal beings), improving them to a life of deprivation, is the outcome of horrendous animal manufacturing.

Animals have hearts, hope, faith and spirit. We have no right to hurt and kill them. Any of them. Horses, rabbits, pigs, cows, chickens or even birds. They do nothing to cause us harm and what do we do in return? Kill them and make them live through touture. All this needs to come to a big FAT end. We need to show the bad people of the world that they have no right to do what they do. We need to show them that animals only bring kindness to the world. We need to show them that they cannot continue. We can all do this to save the heart, soul, spirit and hope of a beautiful innocent animal. STOP ANIMAL CRULTY ONCE AND FOR ALL. WE DEMAND IT

    If the consumer knew exactly where and how their roast pork or Sunday bacon came from. If a graphic picture of what they were about to purchase and eat was placed on the meat tray in the supermarket I am willing to bet that over 80% plus would put it back on the shelf and choose something else for dinner. Consumers need to be made aware of the torturous treatment these poor voiceless animals receive on a daily basis. Factory farming has to end now, we don't need it. It is cruel and barbaric and completely unnecessary. Wendell Berry got it right, factory farming is unethical and does more harm than good.

    All kept quietly behind closed doors so that consumers can comfortably eat their ham and bacon without having to think about the pain and suffering of these animals. Few parents dare tell their children that the yummy ham and bacon used to be a cute little piglet, about the suffering it endured during its life and when it was killed for them to eat.
    Education and exposure of the realities of mass food production are the way to change behaviour, reduce demand and ultimately stop this disgusting treatment of animals.
    In the meantime our government needs to ensure that companies like Rivalea either treat the animals humanely in a manner befitting a civilised society or are closed down.

    when will "human beings" start respecting all other lifeforms. Especially pigs, they are such intelligent sensitive animals. Stop this cruel practice, it truly makes me sick to my stomach seeing this.

    i truly believe that the most dangerous and cruel species on earth are humans. for those who set themselves apart- never give up, we are the voice of those that do not have one and on there behalf we will be heard.

    There shouldn't be a difference between cats, dogs, pigs, cows, ducks, lambs, horses, fish. All animals. Don't be discriminating. All deserve the right to be safe and treated with respect. ✌🏾️✌🏾

    Pigs are intelligent, sentient beings & deserve a life worth living. Stop this horrific torture & murder. It is heartless, greedy & unethical

    Such cruelty. Animals deserve better. Once I became aware of the misery of life for pigs in piggeries and the horrific method of slaughter I never again ate pork, no more ham, no more bacon. When I see these products in the shops all I hear is the squeals of terrified animals in agony. People who work in this barbaric industry must have hearts of stone.

    Cruel, unacceptable & unnecessary. Needs changing to more humane method. Animal welfare considerations must come before money as these sentient beings are paying the ultimate price already.

    I have endured the disturbing footage of the inhumane treatment of these animals and thank GOD I stopped eating animal parts a long time ago. I cannot believe that this is going on in Australia I thought it was uncivilised countries that had little education and didn't know better. I am truly ashamed that this is going on here.

    Watching how those poor defenceless animals are kicked punched and electrocuted over and over prodded and electrocuted again or the so called humane gassing being suffocated and gasping for air burning from the inside out for god knows how long the terror they feel is intolerable how this is allowed to go on.

    Rivalea Australia is the country's largest pig killing company, and one of the most highly-regarded. It is clear that there is no humane way of killing pigs for food.

    I demand that all piggeries and slaughterhouses owned by Rivalea are shut down, though I accept that they are only one part of the problem, and as such I pledge to do all that I can to stop supporting this inherently cruel, disgusting industry.

    I find this quite disturbing the fact that i pay more for free range and didnt realise my pig i was eating was contaminated with Gas, Appart from this the fact the animals are terrafied and treated so bad when they are extremly intelligent creatures and should be treated with respect, I will never buy pork again untill this practice is stopped.

    Please have a heart and stop this incredibly disgusting injustice.rnPigs 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.rnThe 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.rnI 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.

    We are here to live, not to take it away. Use your time here for the right things. This is sickening and against nature. To commit to such cruelty is shameful and a complete disregard for the beauty of life.

    This is NOT humane treatment. Causing terror, distress in such a way isn't humane, it is foul. These methods are not the right ones at all and you know it.

    There is no need to treat any animal in such an appalling manner ! Surely the largest pig killing company in Australia would have the resources to put in a place a more humane method of killing these poor animals.If they cant/wont then Rivalea should be shut down !
