Stop the Live-Burnings!
In just the last 20 months, nearly 80,000 animals have been burned alive in barn fires in Canada. News of barn fires have become a weekly event, each one killing thousands of animals. Pig barns are the most affected with producers even stating in the media that they are tempted to do the same as prices for hogs are so low.
This is premeditated cruelty.
Why is the federal government not acting to protect these pigs?
CETFA urges all Canadians to contact the federal Minister of Agriculture Gerry Ritz and demand that fire codes for barns be added as criteria for whether hog producers receive federal bail-out funding - which is, after all, our tax dollars.
We have a say in this issue! Become involved. No one else is protecting these animals.
