Coles Comes to the Pig Party!

Coles Comes to the Pig Party!

Some days it is just so exciting to be a part of the Animals Australia Unleashed team I can't even tell you!

After years of campaigning against factory farming, we were excited to hear Coles announce today that they are committed to having a completely sow stall free homebrand pork range by the end of 2014. What does this mean..?

Locking mother pigs inside 'sow stalls' is one of the cruellest things ever done to animals in Australia. The stalls themselves are not much bigger than the pigs' bodies, meaning they are stuck in one spot and can't even turn around for up to months on end.

Pigs are smart, curious individuals - much like dogs! - and it's shocking to think that for the sake of pork, bacon and ham, this type of cruelty is still legal in Australia. Fortunately, Coles has started to use their power to help end some of the worst abuse suffered by pigs on factory farms.

What's even more fortunate is that you don't have to be a massive company like Coles to make a big difference for animals. You can be a friend to pigs (and other animals) simply by taking them off your plate. It's easy! And -- you'll be saving the lives of 100 innocent animals every year. Now THAT's something worth celebrating :)

I wonder who else we can invite to the pig party next :)

Good on Coles, but why so long?? that's a long 4 years away... if they refuse to buy factory farmed meat, the farmers would have to change a lot quicker, put the pressure on Mr Coles !  megaphone
