The Pig-Vision project has observed the lives of two pigs for seven months. Two brothers, whose lives could not have been more different. If you are still wondering exactly what this project is all about, then this article will help you to understand. With this comparative video line-up we want to provide a retrospective overview [...]
The unpleasant cold and dark of an early winter morning await us as we leave the house. It is January 28th 2010 and we are on our way to document X15 on his final parade – to the slaughtering block. With a queasy feeling in our stomachs we get into the car and set off. [...]
The pictures on this video are neither nice nor enjoyable. They depict the slaughter of a pig. One hundred percent legal – one hundred percent “normal”. Every day countless pigs worldwide are killed in this, or even more cruel ways. This pig is X15, the pig that was accompanied by camera and documented for seven [...]
The final parade of X15 was his journey to the slaughtering block. Experienced hands kill and dismantle what was once his body. And all this only because humans like to eat meat. Habit? Necessity? Or can it be changed? You tell us.
We documented the killing of the feeding pig X15 with cameras; at the same time we tried to communicate an overall impression of the happenings via Twitter. Here we provide the sent messages once again: 06:49 am In a moment we´ll leave to accompany X15 with cameras on his last path. We´ll keep you updated. [...]
Today in the course of the morning, X15 will be killed. You have the possibility to witness everything realtime, because we will report on twitter (you can read it there also without being registered) and facebook promptly. Pictures and the video of the end of X15 we will provide you tomorrow.
As soon as X15 has gained 120 kg, his time is up. As a fattened pig he will be killed, because he has reached what the meat-industry call the „slaughter weight“. It will make sausage, ham and schnitzel out of him. From this weight on, for every kilogramm that X15 gains, the farmer hast o [...]
Again we visited X15 during the weaning. As you can see he already has grown quite a bit. More pictures you can find in the associated album on Flickr. Connect with our account on Flickr and find out first if there are new pictures online. Become a contact in the network of pig-vision.
In this interview the scientific consultant of the animal rights group PETA, Dr. Edmund Haferbeck, informs us about his concerns of keeping of pigs. We spoke about the keeping of mother animals, about the postnatal clipping and the separation of farrows from their mother.
Our campaign is already being supported by a big number of people. Thank you to all of them! Nina Georgiev is one of our supporters and as a cartoonist has sent us this comic strip for pig-vision: 1. Naturally…we are peaceful creatures 2. Not locked up 3. And naturally….people don’t eat meat Become a part [...]
