Ozzie pork producers respond to ad campaign
Australian pork producers are reacting angrily to the
animal rights group, Animals Australia's extended advertising campaign
protesting against practices in the pork industry.
A Pork Queensland board member is particularly shocked
at the use of a child in the advertising campaign which calls on people to only
eat free range pork.
Gayndah producer Paul Taylor says Australian
producers are leaders in animal welfare, so the advertisements are only damaging
the progress the industry has made.â€ It might affect them emotionally, but if
you just look at it, it's ludicrous suggesting that a pig thinks like a
three-year-old child, that's really what I can't get over," he said.Subscribe here
