  • 18/12/2015: Animal Justice’s Mark Pearson attends Corowa piggery & demands immediate halt to pig gassing

    I attended the largest piggery in Australia, Rivalea’s Corowa piggery and demanded an immediate halt to the gassing of 4,000 pigs a day where each pig suffers abuse according to world expert.

    After repeated efforts to raise the issue with NSW Primary Industries Minister Niall Blair and Rivalea senior management regarding pigs suffering from ineffective gassing I decided to take the matter directly to the people responsible.

    Clearly there IS something to hide. We drove along PUBLIC land and used drone footage to capture the intensiveness of the scale, the severity and the lack of transparency. This is a blight on humanity.

    18/12/2015 Mark attends largest piggery in Australia, Rivalea’s Corowa piggery and demands an immediate halt to the gassing of 4,000 pigs a day.

    I had previously written to both Rivalea and Department of Primary Industries Minister Niall Blair to seek an escorted visit to the piggery and slaughterhouse. The visit was to be primarily focused on testing the gas mixture used to stun the pigs before being killed. Both the Minister and Rivalea rejected my offer, the latter sighting NO reason for the basis of the rejection. The Police were called in to investigate while other government authorities and their agents turn a blind eye.

    Mark Pearson, Animal Justice MLC of NSW parliament states:

    “I am attending Rivalea’s piggery and abattoir today because both the company and NSW Department of Primary Industries have refused a formal inspection with me to investigate the egregious cruelty inflicted on thousands of pigs every day: 4,000 today; 20,000 this week and hundreds of thousands since evidence was first exposed early last year.”

    Education on the intelligence, beauty and sentience of animals is key to promoting a more compassionate and peaceful world. As well as providing for animals in need of care and comfort sanctuaries will play a huge part in the ongoing education of compassion and empathy for all sentient beings.

    Most sanctuaries run solely on donations from the public and the good will and hard work of volunteers. Please consider visiting Where Pigs Fly and keep an eye out for their next open day.
