24/10/2018

Hundreds of millions of farm animals across the European Union (EU) are forced to live their entire lives imprisoned in tiny, barren cages. Many millions of others spend a significant proportion of their lives in cages. These inhumane systems confine and restrict, thwart many of an animal’s natural instincts and are a desolate reflection on our society. It’s not just egg-laying hens that are caged. Millions of rabbits, pigs, quail, ducks and geese also experience unimaginable suffering in cruel cages on farms throughout the EU – all sentient beings, capable of suffering and joy. These outdated and cramped conditions cause severe health and welfare compromises, preventing these sentient beings from experiencing a life worth living.
