(AU) Animal-rights activists target factory farms

[The Australian]

LEADING animal rights group Animals Australia is set to launch a
massive new campaign targeting the "cruel" intensive farming of pigs
and chickens.

It wants all battery farming of caged chickens outlawed and the
intensive farming of pigs confined in small pens on "factory farms"

Consumers will be encouraged to reduce their meat consumption or
switch to free-range eggs, chicken, pork, ham and bacon.

Animals Australia revealed yesterday that after the success of its
campaign last year highlighting the cruelty involved in live cattle
exports to Indonesia, it was preparing "its most ambitious campaign
ever undertaken".
