SAFE has received disturbing new footage taken last month inside an intensive piggery in the Auckland area. The footage shows frustrated and depressed sows as well as sick, dying and crippled piglets. Many of the breeding sows had sores or suffering from badly infected teats.
The footage was taken by members of Open Rescue who openly identify themselves and take full responsibility for their actions, despite any possible legal repercussions which may arise. Open Rescue volunteers are active in Australia, Europe, United States and New Zealand.
Open Rescue investigator Deirdre Sims says her team are ordinary people acting with compassion in the face of suffering. "We hope showing this evidence of atrocities taken on a New Zealand farm will help end this abuse. If people boycotted pig meat it would help pave a way to the freedom of these poor suffering animals", she says.
