A doting mother, female pigs in nature spend days building a nest of leaves or straw before giving birth. Their piglets then stay with them for about 15 weeks. The nesting instinct is so strong for sows that even when they have nothing but a hard floor, they still attempt to build a nest, pawing at the floor, nuzzling the bars and attempting to turn around .

On factory farms, pigs must give birth in barren metal cages, called “farrowing crates”, which are often so small that the mothers can’t even stand up or turn round. The sow can neither get close enough to clean her children nor move away from them when she wants to, leading to many incidents of aggression towards piglets, which is virtually unheard of in the wild.

A German farm is livestreaming two mother pigs. This is a day in their lives.

I can't see today it's too much after Yulin. Please write what is happening to inform people not just video because it's hard to see.

Ever wondered what's wrong with petting zoos? #animalrights  
If you learn about plans for a petting zoo, please write to the organisers and ask them to replace it with an event that doesn't involve exploiting animals

There's nothing magical about cruelty to animals.

Follow us and help save animals!
Introduction
We focus attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: factory farms, laboratories, the clothing trade, and the entertainment industry. We work through public education, cruelty cases, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns.

PETA believes that animals have rights and deserve to have their best interests taken into consideration, regardless of whether they are useful to humans. Like you, they are capable of suffering and have an interest in leading their own lives.

Follow PETA and we'll keep you updated on new ways to help animals.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Foundation, or PETA UK, took on the campaign activities of PETA Europe on October 1, 2009. References to actions before that date are references to PETA Europe actions.
