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.

What a horrible thing to do to another living creature. Governor Christie, why are you okay with this? Are you completely without empathy or compassion? Sincerely, Randy Cromwell

Pigs are wonderful animals, at least as smart as dogs if not smarter. A pet pig can be house-trained. Pigs should not be tortured and, frankly, not eaten by anybody!

They are just too arrogant to admit that they can't pay for extra space for the pigs because of their cartoon villain level greed. If they need happiness in life, find a real therapist, not make your money the therapist.

Because this is disgusting. Meat eaters don't want this torture? All babies should be raised by their mamas in clean and comfortable surroundings?
