Unfortunately, it is no exception that piglets that are actually viable are killed and disposed of like rubbish.
As always, the problem lies in the system.
In order to further increase the profitability of pig breeders, sows have been bred in recent years to “produce” more and more offspring.
Thrown away like garbage
For this purpose, the animals were even bred additional pairs of ribs. However, a mother pig usually does not have enough teats to care for all of her babies.
In addition, with the unnaturally high number of piglets, weaker animals are born with almost every birth.
These would require more intensive care and often do not gain weight as quickly as their siblings. Even if it is forbidden by law to take an animal from economic Killing an animal for economic reasons is part of everyday life in pig breeding.
And I mean…Rows of sows, individually locked in small, narrow crates. Never having rest, never being able to stretch their legs without getting into the neighboring cage – a miserable life…
This torment is forbidden even under the law, and yet it is practiced.
Many of the animals have flesh wounds, foam at the mouth or chew restlessly.
The fact that the individual living creature counts for nothing in pig breeding and fattening is also shown by the accepted loss calculation with regard to the death of piglets: Because many of the animals are born weak and sick due to the targeted breeding for the largest possible litters, they are born from employees are stunned with a blow to the head before they are killed or thrown alive in the trash, where they die in agony.
It is common practice to knock the weak against the wall, simply without anesthesia, to hit the three-day babies against the edge…something like that is allowed!!
And the rest of these highly sensitive and highly intelligent animals that survive this cruel procedure are locked up in halls with a pathetic stench on slatted floors.
The animals live on their feces, over tons of this fecal matter.
THAT alone is torture, we don’t even need to talk about a few square meters more space plus or minus.
Anyone who earns their money in slave trade, exploitation and murder has neither conscience nor compassion.
Nothing should surprise us, because every crime, every sadism, every professional perversion is allowed.
Thanks to the fascist system that supports them.
Thanks to the carnivores who keep this system alive
My best regards to all, Venus
