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.

It's just not right, you know? this is an animal, a highly intelligent one. Not saying if it wasn't it should get a small cage that's painful and not healthy. Any animal obviously needs and requires certain space if you are going to go out of your way to take care of or own one. No matter what a small cage is torture. It's not a fun time. It hurts, a small amount of space is not going to do it in the whole common sense and feeling department. If we want a world that's safe and healthy for not only us but the animals around us we do actually need to create it more then just being aware of how it should look or be. We can actually do it, even if it takes time, we just need it to be something that is said that needs to be done more then people simply saying it and make what needs to be done simply happen.
