60 Minutes: Behind the Scenes Footage

Did you catch Animals Australia's piggery investigation on 60 Minutes on Sunday? If not don't worry, you can still see the segment on the 60 Minutes website.

I'm so thrilled! Just think, more than 1 million Aussies saw the truth about Australia's pig industry. Many will have never thought about where pork, bacon and ham come from before. And now they know that animal cruelty laws fail to protect animals raised for food, and that these profit driven animal industries aren't looking out for the wellbeing of their animals they're looking out for their wallets.

After the show, our office was flooded with phone calls and emails from shocked viewers who had no idea of the routine cruelty of the pork industry. Many of these callers have sworn never to eat pigs again after seeing behind the closed doors of factory farms!

And now's your chance to see the behind the scenes footage of Animals Australia's investigators inside the piggery:

The 60 Minutes expos no doubt had a huge impact! And coupled with Animals Australia's TV ad campaign, Australian pigs have never had a louder voice speaking out against their cruel treatment.

Many people will be considering where their food comes from for the very first time. So it's prime time for us to speak up! Ask friends and family if they saw the show, and what they thought of it. Get talking about the issue! You never know, with your help a few more people might opt for a cruelty-free Christmas this year!
