Cruelty Runs Rampant: Call for Video Surveillance in Canadian Farms
Shocking hidden camera footage released by Animal Justice shows that cruelty still prevails at Excelsior pig farm in British Columbia. The video shows pigs suffering with injuries, being kicked and jabbed, and feces, blood, and partially-eaten carcasses strewn about the facility.
This is the third time Excelsior has been exposed for illegal cruelty—yet it has never faced legal consequences. The only prosecutions in connection to Excelsior have been of whistleblowers and animal advocates who drew attention to the abuse.
Animal suffering runs rampant on farms because there are no legal standards for welfare on farms, and no government inspections to detect cruelty. Undercover footage regularly reveals shocking abuse, yet governments have failed to act to protect animals.
Please take urgent action today to ask the BC government to regulate and monitor farms, and to install cameras that can be livestreamed to the internet so the public can see with their own eyes what happens behind the closed doors at farms like Excelsior.
