End the Cage Age - Why the EU must stop caging farm animals

End the Cage Age - Why the EU must stop caging farm animals

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 These outdated and cramped conditions cause severe health and welfare compromises, preventing these sentient beings from experiencing a life worth living.
