• RIVALEA’S COROWA PIGGERY GASSING 4,000 PIGS A DAY

    18th December 2015

    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.”

  • CONDEMNATION OF NIGHT HUNTING REGULATION CHANGES

    24th September 2015

    The Baird Government has quietly introduced an amendment to the Game and Feral Animal Control Amendment (Native Game Birds) Regulation 2015 (NSW) to allow licenced night hunting of native birds.  This amendment follows swiftly upon Shooters and Fishers MPs voting in favour of the controversial Biosecurity Bill and with the Newcastle Rail Bill poised for a vote in the upper house.

    Recreational hunting of native birds was rightly banned in 1995 but there have been a number of attempts to subvert the ban since then” says Mark Pearson.
