Sows are put into crates for the piglet's protection and are not in them longer than 6 weeks. Crates prevent the mother from unintentionally sitting on and suffocating her piglets and also allows her to be cool while her piglets are warm.
Stop supporting and participating in animal cruelty and exploitation for personal pleasure or profit! Learn reverence for life. Animals are not human property but wish to live on their own terms, just as we human animals desire for ourselves.
Lab torture must end! There is no reason to put an innocent animal through heinous experiments and pain. Superior non-animal alternatives exist. Go vegan and educate others. Learn that animals are NOT ours to use or do with as we please.
