ATAAC | Australian Teens Against Animal Cruelty - Tasmania bans sow stalls!



sowstalls


Tasmania is the first state to introduce such groundbreaking legislation and it's about time. In a modern society like today, it's hard to believe that mother pigs are still forced to endure up to four months of their lives every time they produce young, in metal crates hardly bigger than themselves. Confining these pigs in sow stalls is one of the cruelest methods of factory farming in Australia. In pig farms, these amazing creatures are never allowed out to the sunshine or interact with their young.

 
Heavy lobbying from people all around Australia, in particular Animals Australia, led to the incredible decision. The Tasmanian Government will implement the phase out of sow stalls with a total ban by 2017.
 
But the fight is not over.
Sow stalls are still used in ALL intensive piggeries all over the rest of Australia. However you can make a difference.
Please consider phasing any pork or bacon from your daily eating habits. Not only is it great for your health, but you are making the world of difference for pigs that otherwise would be subjected to such cruelty. On top of that, it's great to know that your eating habits don't contribute to the cruelty inflicted on these intelligent and beautiful animals.

Still not convinced?

    Great news coming out of Tasmania today. The State Government has given in-principle support for a Parliamentary Inquiry into the state's greyhound racing industry, in light of the Four Corners report. It's the only state in Australia to make moves in this direction. Please email Jeremy Rockliff, the Deputy Premier & Racing Minister to let him know he has made the right decision! jeremy.rockliff@dpac.tas.gov.au
