Factory farming is an abomination beyond any words I could muster. Abolishing farrowing crates would be a positive step in the right direction. Oh, so much further to go.

Thanks very much for posting so we can sign this.

Shame on the Mothers of Mortals, Who do not Stop to Teach
Of the Sorrow that lies in Sweet, Silent Eyes, The Sorrow that has no Speech
For the same Force formed the Camel, That Fashioned Man and King
And the God of The Whole, Gave a Spark of Soul, To Each Furred and Feathered Thing-

Signed and noted. I saw a sow in a cage like this once and couldn't believe it. It just hurt my feeling so bad! I found the "owner" of the sow and asked him why she was incapable of movement. His response was they were kept enclosed like that so they didn't roll over onto their piglets and kill them. Think the sow would probably know if she was getting too close to her babies!
