Prior to their deaths, the suffering of these ill and injured pigs would have been very considerable, yet no signs of appropriate veterinary care were visible. Dr Andrew Knight, Professor of Animal Welfare and Ethics, University of Winchester

This is the Reality Behind British Bacon

Animal Equality sent letters of complaint to the relevant authorities, urging them to take immediate action against P&G Sleigh Pig Unit using the full force of the law. A criminal investigation is now underway.

Sadly, the cruelty we exposed taking place in this particular facility is indicative of an industry which sees animals as nothing more than money-making machines.

Our investigators have filmed inside 10 UK pig farms in the last five years, finding severe animal suffering and flagrant disregard for animal welfare in every single one. This is yet another case of an accredited ‘high welfare’ farm flouting the law. The British pig industry must not be allowed to continue to mislead consumers. Animal Equality is pushing for improved enforcement of existing animal welfare laws as well as for increased legal protections to be put in place for pigs.

Most of what we see here is typical of the industry as a whole. These are not isolated incidents. Dr Alice Brough, Swine Veterinarian
