Pigs in the dark

Power’s out at a 4,500 pig farm; the hog industry’s worried some residents might die.

Daynard worries about public backlash: “The public has been very very supportive of the hog industry to this point and we don’t want headlines of pigs dying in the farms, for sure.” 

. . .

Today Ontario Pork sent an e-mail to producers across the province detailing the steps taken, including steps to either sell or euthanize the animals. The e-mail concludes: “His (Bartels’) decision to let his animals die does not reflect the many other Ontario hog farmers who act responsibly and who have the utmost respect for animal welfare.”
