Signed. (And of course, to be truly humane to pigs- don't buy pork at all. Pigs are as intelligent as dogs, and don't deserve the horrors of factory farming: castration with no anesthetic, a short life in a concrete pen, and then finally being electrocuted before having their throat slit....)

Noted and gladly signed.Such cruelty that these poor innocent pigs suffer every day in their short miserable life i find heartbreaking!!!!!! No pigs should be suffering in these concrete pens in any part of the world,its inhumane!!! My heart aches for them as they have one life and endure such suffering and boredom.Thank you Cher.Liz Xx

Signed,noted reposted. I wish people would stop eating animals' body parts then these horrific things would not be happening. How anyone can eat a terrified animal is beyond my comprehension. Eating meat means that the description given above by Christine has no impact on those who continue to eat meat and there is no such thing as cruelty- free or humane meat production. 'I am going to murder you but I'll be nice to you first' Huh.
