Animal Rights: “pigs are dying during transports”

The animal rights’ organisation Animal Rights is publicising video footage it filmed showing pigs who died during the transport to Zele Abattoir. The organisation is seeking a ban on such transports during hot weather. 

Animal Rights’ footage shows that several pigs were already dead when they arrived at the abattoir.  Pigs do not sweat and as a result have a hard time during the heat.

The footage was made on Wednesday in temperatures in excess of 39°C.
