Bring animal welfare charges against the pork producer who allowed 1300 piglets to starve
Government officials have initiated an investigation surrounding allegations that a pork producer allowed the health of 1300 piglets deteriorate so much that they had to be euthanized. The piglets were being underfed and mistreated because rising prices of animal feed have made keeping the animals alive an unprofitable liability. There is no excuse for letting these innocent animals slip into a state of distress and malnutrition; the Canadian Food Inspection Agency must invoke the Animal Welfare Act and send the message that just because animals become expensive does not mean they can be left to die.
