PETITION: Canada: Don't Transport Pigs in Extreme Weather!

During the "polar vortex" this last month, temperatures got down past -20 degrees Celsius all around the country. Many people stayed indoors to protect themselves. But the pigs bound for Canada's slaughterhouses were still transported to their deaths in trucks, many of which were open to the elements.

Needless to say, the trucks weren't heated. According to activists in Toronto, the pigs arrived at the slaughterhouses frostbitten and shivering. Some were even frozen to the metal sides of the truck.

Unfortunately, it's not any better in warmer weather, when the pigs will be subject to the unrelenting heat of the sun. Many won't receive food, water or even the barest comfort for 36 hours at a time.

These pigs may be heading for the slaughterhouse, but it is still absolutely inhumane to subject them to this much suffering.

Stand against the transport of pigs and other livestock in extreme weather!
