Don't Allow Dogs to Maul Pigs to Death

  • by: Animal Advocates

The govenment in Australia is turning a blind eye to a dark and brutal "sport"- pig dogging- which breaches state animal welfare laws.

Pig dogging involves hunts with packs of "pig dogs" who are released by hunters to track, chase and maul a lone wild pig. Some pigs are savagely mauled to death before the human hunter can locate them. Pigs die a slow and painful death, with immeasurable suffereing as terrified pigs having their flesh torn at by trained hunting dogs.

We ask the Austrailian government to ban this practice.
