ARIWA – Animal Rights Watch e.V.-Report
Disturbing images from the end of November 2020 show how hundreds of pigs, with their extremely sensitive noses, sleep, eat, drink and die in a pathetically smelly mixture of their own feces and urine.
They stand and lie inches deep in their own droppings
The explosive: The conditions have been known to the veterinary office since November and still exist because the technical problems that caused them have not yet been resolved (!!!)
The operation continues as normal without the animals concerned having at least been housed elsewhere.
It is unbelievable and yet everyday life in German “animal production”.
The veterinary office knows about the conditions and has been on-site several times. Even so, it doesn’t even order the animals to be housed elsewhere.
As almost always in pig fattening, the animals suffer from necrosis due to bitten tails, open wounds, umbilical hernias, and eye infections.
The omnipresent excrement makes the infections worse.
In one corridor of the plant, there is even no cover for the slurry basin: Apparently, nobody cares that pigs can fall into it and drown in agony.
The head injuries of many animals in the carcass house also suggest that sick pigs are regularly killed here with a bolt shot in the head – which ARIWA has already documented many times in other companies.
These pictures show once more: Even the absurdly low statutory minimum standards are not enforced in the animal industry. The only solution to end this millionfold suffering is a consistent move away from animal products.
And I mean… “The only solution to end this millionfold suffering is a consistent move away from animal products”…
This is a solution that will take hundreds of years to become a reality. The world will never go totally vegan and is not willing to end this millionfold suffering in the immediate future.
But until then, the guilty must be punished.
We also don’t forgive a murderer because we wait for all people to understand that murder is not good.
And the slogan … but that’s the animal industry, it happens everywhere … it doesn’t help the animals and neither does us. Wherever it happens, it is a crime and must be punished.
And if the veterinary office doesn’t do it, then we gather in front of the fattening facility and demand that it be closed.
Of course, factory farming is excruciating in every form of keeping.
But until this society has understood it and ceases to support this system, criminals in animal production and their state lobbyists must be shown and punished according to the law.
My best regards to all, Venus
