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.
