Ban Pig Gestation Crates

PETITION: Ban Pig Gestation Crates

TARGET: Governor Phil Murphy

Gestation crates are very small metal cages where a mother pig, crated by pig producers, is confined for most of her life. The cages are so small that a mother pig can barely take a step back or forward. They are forced to stand in one place while carrying piglets. Pigs are also known to be one of the smartest animals besides humans, and scientists are claiming that the small parameters are having tremendous mental and psychological effects on the captive swine. Nine states have completely banned gestation crates yet in New Jersey, Phil Murphy has not taken steps to do the same. The legislation is passed, however, he has not signed the bill to put it into effect. Join us in urging Governor Christie to sign the bill.

Pig farming is disgusting and cruel these are intelligent animals who are treated like commodities for their entire miserable short lives until they end up on someone’s plate. The least we can do is give them a better life before they are inhumanely slaughtered.
