KATE BUCK:Farm workers have admitted animal abuse after they were filmed repeatedly kicking pigs in the face and head before stabbing them with pitchforks. Troy Wagstaff, 30, and Artis Grogprkevs, 31, were caught out after vegan activists set up hidden cameras at Fir Tree Farm in Goxhill, Lincolnshire, in April. The farm, which is part of the Elsham Linc group, has a herd of around 10,000 pigs and the group is one of the country’s largest pig producers… The case was brought to court by the RSPCA following an undercover investigation by animal rights group Animal Equality, which placed hidden cameras inside the farm and uncovered horrific footage of abuse…

Activists from Animal Equality planted cameras after an anonymous tip-off that pigs were being mistreated at the farm. Its video showed a number of incidents of violent abuse of animals at the farm, including pigs being kicked in the face and head. Pigs are also seen being jabbed repeatedly with pitchforks and are heard squealing in anguish… Prior to the hearing, a number of animal rights activists protested outside the court to raise awareness about animal abuse across the country.

Steve Witts, of Grimsby Action for Animals said: ‘We are vegans and we are fighting for the rights of animals. ‘When we see animals being abused we always try to demonstrate against it. ‘The footage that Animal Equality gathered from Fir Trees Farm was terrible and we need to highlight what is going on in farms’. Animal rights activist Jane said: ‘Animals are in a position of vulnerability and they need our protection. ‘As vegans, we believe that no animal needs to suffer abuse, they are sentient beings’.
