Needless suffering of Taiwan’s pigs

WSPA recently released shocking undercover video footage showing incredibly cruel – and illegal – slaughter practices at pig slaughterhouses in Taiwan. The footage was gathered by WSPA member society the Environment and Animal Society of Taiwan (EAST) and depicts horrific cruelty including pigs being slaughtered while fully conscious.

Previous investigations by EAST in 2000 had prompted the Taiwanese government to create Codes of Practice to improve conditions at slaughterhouses. However, when EAST returned in 2006, they found that conditions had once again deteriorated and many slaughterhouses had reverted to using inhumane methods.

WSPA is calling upon the government of Taiwan to enforce their existing laws to protect animals in slaughterhouses. We are also asking supporters to take action by sending letters of protest to the Taiwanese government.
