Wally’s Piggery in court

By johnboy - 8 October 2013 19

The ABC has word of court action against Murrumbateman’s infamous Wally’s Piggery:

Owner Wally Perenc has now been served with 53 court notices to attend Yass Local Court under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.

Last year Perenc was named in the New South Wales Parliament as having been convicted of animal welfare offences in 1984 and 1993.

I agree with:

BimboGeek ‘Electro stun and then single blow. Even bolt stunning is cruel and often ineffective.
If you truly must.’

How can you kill a pig for human consummation without being cruel?

Pigs are more intelligent than dogs.

If anyone got treating a dog in the way pigs are factory farmed in Australia there would be an uproar and calls for the person to be thrown in jail. Yet as a society we allow it to be done wholesale to pigs, which ave as much self awareness and personality as dogs.

when you have an industry as fundamentally inhumane as the factory pig farming system it should come as no surprise that people working within the system will take it upon themselves to further mistreat the animals, such as in the case of the workers at this piggery.

Look I believe that nothing in life should be killed with malice. If this guy was doing it to gain enjoyment or prolonging the killing etc for gratification, then bash a few fingers with his own sledgehammer i say that’ll fix him quick smart.

Fair enough Mighty Joe,

I’m no authority on killing methods/butchery, so I’ll defer to you there.

As you say, the animal still needs to be killed, but I don’t think there’s any excuse for doing it in a nastier, crueler way than absolutely necessary.

Nor is there an excuse for making the animals lives, while no doubt short and hardly free, any more torturous than necessary.

Yep, my dad got many a pig from this place…
Now, don’t get me wrong but how is a humane way of killing a pig that’s going to be eaten? take it for a meal first and then a bullet to the brain?
You people do realise that in order for you to eat meat, you need to kill an animal first?
Or, maybe we should all start eating soylent green….

Not a hard concept here….

You kill it in the quickest, most pain-free way that is readily available. If that’s a bullet to the head or slitting it’s throat, then so be it.

I don’t know about you, but I’m doubtful that bashing a pig over the head with a sledgehammer is likely to be either the quickest or most pain-free method. A pigs head isn’t exactly small, so the likelihood of killing the pig instantly, first blow, is probably not high.

High success, instant kill methods are probably the preference.

Correct me if I’m wrong anyone?

Having witnessed many a pig get killed by getting their throats slit, i assure you it is not the quickest, and i dare say, nor is it a painless process, based on the ear wrenching squeals that follow…

Agreed..

i’ve seen my father in law slit, shoot and bash (overseas of course). the bash seemed the quickest way.

realistically, there is no humane way of killing an animal… your still killing it..

As I said before, to all you humane animal slaughter critics, the answer for you is Soylent green.

On another note, its quite a challenge to shot a pig smack bang in the middle of the head (brain) in order to kill it instantly, slightly off target, and you have yourself a hell of a problem.

Back in the days when my ol man worked in the former Oak Estate abattoir, they used giant electrodes that knocked the animal out cold, then they would proceed to kill the animal with whatever methods they used at the time…

Was a regular at this piggery… Good quality pigs, very lean, very little fat…

I better grab a 25kg pig before he shuts shop…

We’re talking about the treatment of the pigs while they are alive.

Which in this case was horrendous.

Close this place down.

Cruelty towards animals is something this society should have grown out of by now,

Perenc is not going to change his ways.

Agreed. Why was this numpty allowed to continue operating with multiple prior convictions? Disgraceful.

Sustained cruelty on thousands of animals in his “care” for years, but it was his killing pigs with a sledge hammer that is the most confronting. and it came to light through an expose`, not through industry safeguards.
