RSPCA NSW inspectors are investigating Wally’s piggery and monitoring its compliance with the Code of Practice for pigs, as referenced in NSW law. Unfortunately this is the same Code that allows sows to be confined to individual stalls and farrowing crates, so small they can’t even turn around. Help us protect the welfare of pigs by writing to your state Minister for Primary Industries.
