Huntsville, Utah – The Weber County Sheriff’s Office launched a criminal investigation against the Jensen Fowers farm on State Route 39 after PETA posted a letter with video footage of people kicking pigs, kicking them, and lifting them off the ground with their tails and feet. to move them. According to a concerned citizen filming the violence, the incident took place at the farm on March 15.
“Utah law recognizes that a pig feels pain just like any dog, cat or human, and deserves protection from abuse,” says PETA Senior Vice President Daphne Nachminovich. “We thank Sheriff Ryan Arbon for promptly initiating an investigation into these acts of gratuitous animal cruelty.”
PETA notes that violence is common in pig farming. Because the extreme stress of overcrowded conditions can cause pigs to fight and bite each other on the tails, workers cut off the piglets’ tails between 4 and 14 days old. At this time, male piglets are also castrated. These extremely painful procedures are performed by non-specialists without pain relief. Secret revelations of PETA’s pig farms led to allegations of mistreatment of workers who, among other things, threw, beat and kicked pigs.
PETA, whose motto is in part that “animals are not in our hands to be abused in any way,” is opposed to arrogance, a worldview focused on human superiority. For more information please visit PETA.org or subscribe to the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram…
