We recently entered a shed containing farrowing crates on an intensive pig farm in Auckland. Along with documenting the heart breaking conditions these mothers are forced endure we also liberated one sweet little piglet. He has been nicknamed ‘Strawberry’ after his fondness of the fruit. He was a third of the size of his littermates and would certainly have not survived much longer on the farm, though if he had he was destined to be slaughtered. He has since been placed in a new home where he is free to be a pig; to run, play and forage.
Pigs are not profit and they are not food; they are thinking feeling loving beings that deserve to be free!
