INVESTIGATION: Mistreatment on Italy's Pig Farms Revealed


In collaboration with Italian television, Animal Equality has released a new investigation that reveals the cruel reality for pigs bred for meat in Northern Italy—a region that markets its products with the stamp of the "excellence of Made in Italy."


THE DETAILS: In September 2020, Animal Equality and Italian journalist Roberta Spinelli visited a pig farm in Brescia, Italy, and documented terrible abuse and suffering—images in stark contrast from the idyllic picture of contented animals on green pastures often painted by the region’s producers. The investigative team found:

- Pigs abandoned and left to die in corridors

- Bodies of dead pigs amongst the living

- Workers dragging pigs by their legs with ropes

- Animals with cysts and sores, unable to walk because of their open wounds

- Animals crammed together and forced to live in overcrowded, unsanitary conditions

- Pigs covered with feces and urine

- Cockroach, rat, and worm infestations

- Sewage not properly disposed of in a ditch adjacent to the farm and fields
