Just 48 hours after Animal Equality issued the terrible images of brutality to animals on the Farm El Escobar, three people were arrested for their involvement in the documented events. The arrest of the three farmers who were filmed smashing iron bars over the heads’ of pigs, and attacking and killing the animals with swords, was confirmed yesterday by the Spanish Authorities.
These actions could constitute an offence of animal abuse, which can carry a sentence of up to one year’s imprisonment.
The authorities are continuing with their investigation.
Warning: The video your about to see contains graphic footage.
Animal Equality works to raise public awareness of the suffering and death of non-human animals in our society and calls for the abolition of animal use. Animals are sentient beings able to feel emotions and sensations such as pain, pleasure or stress and like us they are individuals with their own needs and an interest in living. Most people believe that animals should not be harmed unnecessarily, but the consumption of animal products forces animals into a life of misery and an untimely death. Without the public demand for animal products, billions of sentient beings would be able to live their life, as they have the right to do so, without misery and exploitation.
