Good News for Tasmanian Pigs

Pigs are among the most intelligent and sensitive species on the planet, and yet have been subjected to one of the cruelest practices ever inflicted on farmed animals: gestational crates or sow stalls where sows are confined in tiny crates, unable even to turn around for months on end, denying them from practically any movement and the exercise of their natural instincts.

However, consistent with international precedents, the Tasmanian government (Australia) will implement a phase out of sow stalls with a total ban in 2017. This decision came after a state-wide newspaper advertising blitz by Animals Australia and Brightside Farm Sanctuary, depicting sows in these cruel conditions.

This is great news for God's Creation where every step towards alleviating animal suffering brings peace and reconciliation to Earth.
