Victory for Pigs!!!

Victory for Pigs!!!

Anyone feel like celebrating?! We have every reason to! For the very first time in history one of Australia's state governments has recognised that mother pigs imprisoned in sow stalls for months on end, don't deserve to suffer. Sow stalls will be banned in Tassie!

Sow stalls are a seriously cruel business! They are literally tiny metal cages that are so small that mother pigs trapped inside can't even turn around or walk more than one step. Thousands of pigs in Australia are forced to stand in these cruel cages, with nothing to do all day, often for months at a time.

Imagine if we were forced to endure this? No wonder most of the pigs are depressed and stressed out! They are after all one of the most intelligent species on the planet!

Tassie will phase out sow stalls and totally ban them by 2017. This sets the rest of Australia a great example as well as applying pressure for them to do the same.

We all know that the quickets and simplest way to help pigs is simply not to eat them ... but whilst we're waiting for the rest of the country to catch up and go vegetarian, today's decision will help alleviate some of the worst animal suffering caused by cruel meat industries.

I don't believe this could have happened without the support of thousands of Unleashed/Animals Australia supporters who care about animals. It's their support that's made it possible for Factory Farming TV and Radio Ads to air and to make a big impact.

So it seems that we do have the power to make a difference when it counts! It feels so good to be involved in directly helping animals, who without us would continue to suffer in silence, day in and day out. Now let's get every other state to follow!

happy If you want to thank someone, write to Bryan Green, the Tasmanian minister who announced the ban!

And then, tell the other state ministers to follow Tasmania's lead!
