Pigs are inquisitive and intelligent animals. But on factory farms, they're bored and depressed. In frustration, they bite their cage bars.
Raise Pigs Right - Sentience
A life of misery
Just like us, pigs have personalities. They are curious and social animals. They show empathy and like to be with other pigs.
Pigs can be as playful as a dog and are as intelligent as a three-year-old child. Yet in factory farms across the world, they are kept in awful conditions.
In their life of imprisonment, pigs become noticeably depressed and agitated. Isolation and lack of stimulation makes their eyes sink into their heads. Chronic hunger causes mother pigs to chew with an empty mouth until it’s frothing.
These pigs have no joy in their lives. Only sadness and suffering.
There is a better way
Mother pigs don’t belong alone in cages. They should be free to socialise with other pigs.
