Photos > Sow and Piglet VIC 2018

Sow and Piglet - Found stone cold in the water bowl kept for his mother, this little piglet was writhing but barely hanging onto life.

When you enter a pig farm, the acute suffering witnessed can be overwhelming. This scene involved numerous bodies of piglets who had been killed by staff- smashed into the floor beneath us, indicated by their lifeless beaten-in heads, and the blood puddles at our feet.

As investigators and photographers, our promise to them is always to show people what has happened to them, what is still happening to them, and what will continue to happen to them if each of us don't make kinder dietary choices.

In an attempt to relieve even some of his suffering, after taking him out of the freezing water, he was placed under the heat lamp. Here he laid sprawled out trying to recover from the cold.
